I’ve written about business and culture for magazines and newspapers such as the Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune and any magazine with “fitness” in the title. I even once wrote a quiz for Seventeen magazine but now mostly cover how small companies are using social media and technology for the Journal Reports section. I’ve actually floated around WSJ as a contributing writer to several career columns (Second Arts, How I got Here) and have done some entertainment writing for the Speakeasy entertainment blog.
I really enjoy doing public radio work. I’m drawn to niche ideas such as one story I did for Marketplace about the resurgent popularity of natural materials over plastic. Some companies were even adding weight to their plastic products to influence the customer perception of quality. I’ve also contributed to WNC’s Studio 360 arts and culture program and to several shows on the BBC World Service.
I’ve been an editorial illustrator for as long as I’ve been a writer. My award-winning collage style has been commissioned for New Republic covers and has been double trucked across broadsheets for the Washington Post and the Chicago Tribune. I’ve also produced infographics and animated explainers for a number of clients.
I currently do work for KCET’s SoCal Connected, a broadcast newsmagazine show that covers issues affecting Southern California. I’ve produced many of my own segments as well as assisted other producers with camera work, sound, editing, drone work and motion graphics. For three seasons of work, I’ve won or been part of a team that has won a Los Angeles-area Emmy, a Golden Mike, Walter Cronkite award and two Los Angeles Press Club awards.
