Journalist Extraordinaire

Welcome to my website! I am a Chicago-based, veteran freelance feature writer whose byline has appeared in dozens of newspapers, consumer and trade magazines, alumni and corporate publications.

I am co-author of the tween fashion guide, “Expressionista: How to Express Your True Self Through (and Despite) Fashion,” (Simon & Schuster) with motivational speaker Jackie Walker. I’m also a former adjunct professor of journalism at Columbia College Chicago.

While I consider myself a generalist, I have special interests in homes, architecture, art, food, travel and fashion. I especially enjoy writing trend pieces and personal/project profiles. The posts you find in this website are mostly my ruminations on writing, teaching and making a career from words. Or just some things I’m thinking about…

Got a project in mind for me to write? Let’s talk.
