An extremely versatile writer, I can write nearly everything from deadline gamers and thoroughly researched long-from pieces for national, regional and local audiences.

My work has appeared on,,,,, and in publications like the the Philadelphia Enquirer, the Los Angeles Times, the Los Angeles Daily News and the Orange County Register.
