"I am, by calling, a dealer in words; and words are, of course, the most powerful drugs used by mankind." - Rudyard Kipling


As an experienced and award-winning journalist, ghostwriter, and author, I pride myself on my professionalism, resourcefulness and keen editor's eye along with an ability to provide high quality and impactful prose. I understand the power of words and creative problem-solving to meet clients' needs in their authentic voice and brand, and I specialize in translating complex issues into meaningful and clear language without any "dumbing down," especially when it comes to important issues such as science and health.

I work with individuals and English-language news organizations, magazines, academic institutions, public affairs offices, nonprofits, corporations, and Web sites worldwide with assignments including ghostwriting and editing books, book proposals, newsletters, articles, blogs, essays, and speeches. Memberships include the Society of Professional Journalists, Society of Environmental Journalists, American Society of Journalists and Authors, Association of Ghostwriters (associate), and the Chicago Writers Association.

Rates upon request.
