I love crafting thought-provoking stories, educational articles and attention-grabbing messages.
For 17 years I have worked as a professional writer and editor for various news organizations, professional associations and large, global corporations. In the last five years I've covered the oil and gas industry as an internal communications expert for a major energy services company, a senior production-technologies editor for an industry trade magazine, and a senior editor/writer for a subscription-based news service covering the life cycles of onshore wells.
My specialties include: editing, writing, interviewing, source recruitment, industry conference coverage, marketing communications and messaging, project management, corporate communications, website/CMS management, AP Style, photography and design.
