Educated as a journalist, and with more than three decades of experience as an editor, writer, and proofreader, I have the knowledge, skill, and judgment you need. Helping you ensure clarity, consistency, and accuracy for your written message is my goal.
During my career, I've edited many hundreds of reports and other documents. I've written many dozens of news releases, position papers, and other items. I've also researched, written, and marketed two highly regarded nonfiction books and more than 30 freelance articles.
Specialty areas include government, especially the Texas Legislature; higher education; public education; the oil and gas industry; science; Texas, American, and European history; and college football.
My experience includes 23 years in media relations, too.
