"Creativity is a wild mind
and a disciplined eye."

– Dorothy Parker

I write,
therefore I am ...

If my life were epitomized in a book, it would have to be the thesaurus. There’s action. There’s adventure. And (spoiler alert) there’s antonyms. Such a twist!

The written word has long been my passion and my profession. I started my career as a newspaper reporter and editor, but have since worked as a writer for ad agencies, internet startups, travel websites, magazines and hotel-casino creative teams. My words have run in print and digital publications around the globe, on signage around the nation, in cyberspace and amid the glowing neon of the Las Vegas Strip.
