My main objective is to parlay twenty years of experience into a full-time or long term position. However, I also welcome freelance writing assignments for quality web sites, magazines, newspapers and trade journals.
My latest achievements/positions in journalism include serving as a regular contributor to Intermezzo, Taste & Travel, Tasting Panel, Bar Business and C-Suite Quarterly (CSQ), where I serve as the food & travel editor. I have also worked extensively with Malibu Times Magazine, and have written numerous celebrity cover stories and other personality and lifestyle profiles.
In 2010, I co-founder and edited Liquid Living Magazine (home entertaining/decor). Since 2002, I have published articles worldwide in LUCIRE (U.S. West Coast Editor), Harper’s Bazaar Malaysia, BeE Woman, Whole Life Times, FIT, The Jewish Exponent, TRIBE Magazine, Food & Beverage, Dining Out, Enchanted Bride, Las Vegas Bride, Las Vegas Woman, NUVO, Beverage Industry News, WhereLA, NEO, From House to HOME, Wedding Vow, Casa Y Hogar, La Reppublica, Beauty Store Business, Dayspa, JWest, Arizona Foothills, Estates West, SE7EN, Beverage Industry News (Managing Editor), Patterson’s Beverage Journal (Editor-at-Large), Audrey, Boulevard (which recently relaunched) and New You.
In addition to food, beverage and travel, I have also published a significant number of stories about Fashion, Health/Wellness, Philanthropy, Beauty, Spas, Jewish Topics, Celebrity Profiles, Entertainment, Charity Events and Weddings. I also do a lot of my own photography when an assignment requires supplementary artwork.
Between 1995-2001, I worked full-time on the public relations and advertising side of the desk, specializing in the creation of media kits and business collateral for restaurants, wineries, food companies, film and television projects, fashion companies, retail stores and other lifestyle-oriented clients.
I am still actively working with several P.R. firms including Michelle Vink & Associates and Pivotal P.R., comprising a “content providing” business. I use my vast network of contacts and sources to write solid, entertaining and informative copy for placement in different consumer and B-to-B publications. I also have the capabilities to create engaging materials for public relations and marketing purposes with a magazine style that appeals to readers looking for a sensory experience beyond the text.
