I'm a freelance editor and writer for the web. I help companies of all sizes develop a digital editorial strategy, ideate and produced high-quality written content, and create stories that attract the audiences they want. The topics that most interest me are technology, futurism, health, productivity, psychology, food/cooking, humor, and entertainment. Whatever the topic, I love to help put great stories out into the world. I have years of experience editing longform essays, reported stories, opinion pieces, and other quality writing for the web.
In addition to the above, my suite of services includes executive branding (LinkedIn, Medium, etc.), ghostwriting, branded content, copywriting, and commerce. And my experience managing editorial teams has led to interim editor stints at popular consumer-facing websites (maternity leave, sabbaticals, etc.)
After over a decade as a full-time editor for companies like Comedy Central, LogoTV, Yahoo!, and Videogum, launching sites and managing teams, I left a job as Editorial Director of digital at the Tribeca Film Festival to go "freelance forever" and work with companies and individuals in need of editorial expertise. Recent clients include:
Gyrate Media (Agency):
- Lead Editor on 2.5 year content project with Fortune 20 tech company, delivering up to 10 stories/month. Topics: consumer tech, futurism, enterprise, and thought leadership.
- Editor on large content strategy and production project for a buzzy new e-commerce startup.
Mashable.com - Interim Head of Commerce (four stints)
Elle.com - Interim Executive Editor and Interim Entertainment Editor (two stints)
Other recent clients include The Village Voice (freelance editor), Scholastic (freelance editor), Invoxia (copywriter) and Shutterstock (copywriter).
My writing has appeared in such outlets as GQ, Elle.com, The Awl, The Hairpin, Gothamist, Jezebel, Gawker, Vulture, and NY Mag's Daily Intel, among many others, and I was co-founding editor of Videogum.com.
Though most of my work lately has been in the background as an editor/consultant/ghostwriter, I still write for fun under my own byline sometimes. Here are a few of my recent clips:
