"Having covered areas as diverse as entertainment, business, art, design, architecture, lifestyle, health, science, travel and technology, my writing is eclectic — echo that for writing style. I've written deeply researched pieces of journalism as well as immersive first-person narratives. Although I'm first and foremost a features/long-form writer, I have fun with shorter profile or service packages on thought-provoking and inspiring people and places."
