A lifelong storyteller… As a published journalist since 1999 and a marketing/PR consultant since 2009, I have interviewed and successfully promoted people from all walks of lifefrom Deborah Harry of Blondie and author Neil Gaiman, to the firefighter who brought back the World Trade Center beams for a 9/11 memorial in Indianapolis.

I am a lifelong writer of poetry, lyrics, music, and journalistic work covering subjects such as arts/entertainment, music, literature, travel, food/dining, nightlife, business, technology, architecture, environmental issues, the military, engineering, transportation, interior design, home improvement, health care, and science. I am also the co-founder and singer-songwriter for independent recording artists Electric Dream Society and The Sweetest Condition. (I also formerly performed with Irene & Reed).

My personal interests include photography, website design, branding and marketing through public relations, social media networking, music promotions, blogging, songwriting, writing poetry, ferret rescue, supporting independent film, and roller derby. My independent marketing and promotions work on social media websites has produced many retweets by major international musicians (including by Amanda Palmer to her 1 million followers), government leaders such as General Frank Grass, director of the National Guard, and well-known entertainment venues such as Nashville’s Exit/In and Robert’s Western World.

I am available for freelance work or consultation and welcome email messages, and Tweets. Learn more about me on About.me. Cheers!
