I have spent the past 12 years in the trade publications business, working my way to the top of my field, becoming editor of one of the leading magazines in the industry. I am innovative in my approach and have excellent communication and editorial skills. I believe in people and I am dedicated to teamwork, honesty, organization and the advancement of creative awareness in our business community. I work as an independent contractor available for writing, editing, proofreading, editorial planning, and budget refining. I also help manage freelance and consult publishers in the areas of expanding a magazine’s role and image within said industry and among major trade groups.
