An Editor and Freelance Writer Who Travels A Lot 🙂 …
…and regularly to Nashville, Seattle, Bellingham, San Diego, Malibu, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, New York…
As a contributing editor at Luxury Globe Media, I have written about Paris market streets for LuxuryParis.com, about Tuscan experiences for LuxuryItaly.com, about luxury lodging in Nashville for LuxuryUS.com, and about afternoon tea experiences for LuxuryUK.com. I am currently curating and contributing content for the LuxurySpain site, which will launch this year.
As a freelance writer, I offer a fresh approach on local happenings, keeping readers current on COMMUNITY AND LIFESTYLE trends. I contribute regularly to Southern California Life magazine, and to VisitVenturaCA.com and Conejo Valley Lifestyle magazine. My recent stories have covered the Santa Barbara Urban Wine Trail, the Grand Central Market in Los Angeles, The Adamson House in Malibu, and Holiday Cruises in Ventura Harbor.
I have also written a monthly print advice column, edited several websites and a national monthly newspaper insert, and taught creative and analytical writing and language arts.
After receiving a BA in English/Creative Writing (and later a teaching credential), I enjoyed a successful career as a talent representative, managing actors. I then worked as a writer and contributing editor in the magazine world and taught writing and language arts. My additional experience includes public relations, promotions, marketing, and web-content development. I also co-founded Gourmet LA Food Tours, which offered walking food & cultural tours in Southern California (and was ranked the #1 Malibu tour by Trip Advisor).
