Curiosity fuels my writing. That’s why I’ve written about such a wide variety of subjects for more than 20 years. From personal finance to food, technology to parenting, I am a versatile writer who welcomes the opportunity to learn new things along the way to engaging writing for a publication’s audience.

The clips below represent a wide swath of my experience.
