Hello. I’ve been a digital and print journalist and manager for many years. Currently, I’m senior editor of digital content at AARP. My past includes senior-level editing positions at NPR, USA Today and CNN. I’ve also been losing money as a weekend musician for almost as long as I’ve been a journalist.
Here’s my resume and below are a few clips (note that I’ve been an editor/manager for decades, so I rarely write for publication). Also, please check out my personal blog.
If you want to reach me, please email me. You also can find me on Twitter or LinkedIn.
