About Me

I’ve always been drawn to sharing thoughts and ideas through the power of words.

Whether it was penning fictional stories or journaling personal experiences, writing has been my creative outlet since I was a child.

That said, it’s been both rewarding and fulfilling building a life-long career using my skills as a writer and journalist.   

Reflecting on my background, one of my strengths is understanding from a marketing perspective, what needs to be communicated to the audience in a concise and engaging way.

As a producer for E! News Daily, I was writing and producing video content for a live show, five days a week. Here I gained the ability to quickly understand ideas and produce entertaining content, all on an extremely tight deadline. 

In theatrical film publicity, at places like Paramount Pictures, I was writing and producing marketing and publicity content for movies like Dreamgirls, helping convince press and audiences why a musical should appeal to every walk of life.

I truly believe that everyone has a story and these days I’m sharing them as a contributing writer for, Ventura Boulevard Magazine. I research and write about everything from food, fashion to feel-good articles about local kids collecting loose change for the Children‘s Hospital of Los Angeles or the best place for families to pet a sloth. 

For the last two decades, writing allows me the good fortune of allowing to communicate ideas, products and services to people all over the world.
