Dynamic, driven, and wildly enthusiastic about choosing writing as both my profession and passion, I am a creative writing professional with extensive expertise in project and people management, comfortable with both critical and innovative content. Fanatical about deadlines, I possess excellent writing, editing, and proofreading skills honed on a variety of published products while working for 12 years at a Fortune 500 company in the social expression industry (paper and e-cards, calendars, stationery). Wrote, edited, and concepted conventional greeting card copy for seven years before promoted to studio management. As the sole editor and proofreader for a 120-page monthly magazine featuring the arts and culture scene for SW Virginia (articles, ads, shopping guides, etc.), I moved easily between designers, advertisers, copywriters, and executives at top speed. My specialties are creative writing and editing focused on product or project ideation and innovation.
