I enjoy thinking outside of the box while finding creative strategies that best benefit my media clients…

Award-Winning Writer & Brand Consultant

Being an award-winning travel writer, I have provided my writing and editing services to international magazines, online media outlets, digital agencies and copywriting clients. My areas of expertise include travel, tourism, hospitality, lifestyle, business, golf, spa & wellness, food & drink, theater, lgbt and fashion. Having an International perspective on business, combined with a firm grasp on the latest media technologies, I enjoy thinking outside of the box while finding creative strategies that best benefit my media clients; travel and hospitality consulting accounts; writing and editing projects; and travel assignments.

 

Other projects include hotel reviews for The Telegraph UK; numerous content writing assignments with several of the leading digital advertising agencies; serving as ambassador to brands such as Seiko and Marriott International; and developing editorial content for travel and lifestyle outlets.

 

I have been fortunate to work with such a diverse compilation of clients and projects over the years, which has included corporate branding and launches; social media campaigns and training; brand marketing and public relations; copywriting and SEO content writing; copyediting and proofreading; and producing and directing video/photo projects. As I enter my third decade of working with long-time clients and new projects, I am always eager to discuss new opportunities on a full-time, contract or freelance basis that can benefit from my unique collection of expertise and hands-on experiences.

Editing & Copyediting Services

While a majority of my work is associated with travel and lifestyle magazines, I also collaborate with a number of brands to further develop their media content (website, collateral, social media, etc.). I work with independents and publishers to provide copyediting and proofreading for fiction, non-fiction and special interest book projects.

 

As the editor and managing partner at LuxeGetaways Magazine, I work with the ongoing development of the brand (marketing, advertising, social media, distribution, etc.), while managing all aspects of the content being developed in-house and via multiple freelance contributors. With a focus on building confidence and trust, I have developed a loyal brand following of readers and industry professionals; leading the digital publication to win numerous publishing awards.
