I am a full-time, New York-based freelance writer/researcher/project manager with a long track record working in the corporate, nonprofit, and government sectors.

Over the last two years, I've been freelancing for the Type Directors Club, the Department of Commerce, and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's Corporate Communications team in New York City.

For Type Directors, I've created all the daily content for their social media channels (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter), which reach over 111,000 type enthusiasts worldwide. For MTA, I have reported and written stories for the daily employee on-line newsletter on a wide range of topics, including Arts for Transit, new software deployments to enhance productivity across agenices, profiles of outstanding employees, and what goes on behind the scenes at the Business Service Center, the largest government shared-services operation in the United States.

Recently, I served as the lead writer for several toolkits published by the National Telecommunications & Information Administration at the Department of Commerce that helped local governments take the right steps to implement broadband infrastructure and smart-city initiatives.

My other recent work includes an arts and culture blog on soon-to-close museum shows, ItsNewstoYou; grant writing, brochures, web copy, donor, and promotional materials for arts nonprofits in New York City. Past work also includes scripts for fund-raising spectaculars, art reviews, and think pieces.

I also launched a report series on how museums in New York, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia use social media.

My experience also includes working for large consulting and financial firms, supporting professionals by performing “hard to find” research, drafting policy papers and corporate presentations, crunching numbers for graphic displays, and wrangling/managing input from international teams that have been asked to contribute to corporate publications.

Take a look at my writing samples, which show a variety of styles:

  • Long-form blog posts and news articles for general audiences
  • Internal communications for large organizations
  • Research reports
  • Business strategy.
