I have 30+ years of writing and editing experiece, first as a de facto wordsmith during my career as a land use planner in New York's Hudson Valley, second during 16 years as a technical editor for Microsoft, and currently as a freelance editor.
I edit everything from websites to social media feeds, from Fortune 500 marketing content to children's books, from novels to how-to's, and from proposals to printers' proofs. I help clients clearly convey what they want to convey—in their style.
I also write. My book Pluck Another Apple, Eve, And Finish It was published in 2019 by Sun Portal Press. In 2020 I received an Emerging Poets award from the Allied Arts Foundation. Book 2 is in the works.
Besides writing and editing, I experiment with a variety of visual media. I'm particularly drawn to media and art pieces that reflect or transmit light.
As soap and water replace holy water,
let us bless them.
As we wash,
let counting seconds
be holy too.
As celebrants wash their hands before a ritual,
let our hands summon us
over and over and over and over again—
at the wrists.
