About Me

For three decades, I’ve written and edited content, including longer essays, shorter blogs, and headlines, on a plethora of topics, including news, many kinds of business, general audience features and sports. I’ve also written marketing collateral — including press releases, web copy and essays. I’m flexible and versatile able to tailor work to audiences and adapt to brand voices. And because I’ve been in journalism, I’m well trained at hitting deadline. Examples of my work are at copyjockey.biz
