I’m a freelance writer and editor specializing in developing, writing and editing content related to cybersecurity, privacy, corporate governance, emerging technologies, e-commerce and consumer tech. I also write fiction and blog posts, and I provide developmental editing services to other writers of fiction and nonfiction works. I’ve taught critical thinking courses as an adjunct instructor at the University of North Carolina, Asheville, and at Pepperdine University in Malibu. Prior to entering the freelance world, I was managing editor of an online business and technology news network for 14 years.
I have a bachelor’s degree in political science and a master’s in social science from the University of Illinois, a bachelor’s in drama from the University of North Carolina at Asheville, and a Master of Fine Arts in screenwriting from the University of Southern California. I’m a Chicago native who migrated to the West Coast. As a longtime resident of Ventura, California, I enjoy bicycling near the ocean, hiking in the mountains, and puttering in the garden. I read and listen to books, I watch TV and movies, and I practice Spanish every day with Duolingo.
