I am a writer and editor in Washington, D.C. As a journalist, I report about arts, history, culture and the environment for magazines, newspapers, websites and radio stations. I also write and do research for documentary films and produce publications and proposals for nonprofits and businesses. My recent big project was writing and editing content for a new National Park Service website and mobile app about Chesapeake Bay history. I also continue to do writing and research for City Projects, a Los Angeles-based film company whose documentaries about identity, politics and changing demographics air on PBS.
My work has been featured on Smithsonian.com and in Smithsonian magazine, The Washington Post Magazine, The St. Louis Beacon, The Dallas Morning News, The Christian Science Monitor, Penn Arts & Sciences Magazine, Rails to Trails magazine, Albuquerque’s alt-weekly Alibi, and the late No Depression music magazine, among other publications.
Previously I was an associate editor at Current, the biweekly newspaper about public radio and television. I’ve also worked as a reporter for NPR affiliate WAMU-FM’s Bluegrass Country and screened calls for The Diane Rehm Show and The Kojo Nnamdi Show. I was a park ranger for NPS in Washington’s Rock Creek Park, where I created and edited the park’s community gardens newsletter. I’ve edited newsletters for several nonprofits, including the Journalism & Women Symposium and Americans for Indian Opportunity.
I am registered as a woman-owned small business on the U.S. Federal Government’s Central Contractor Registration database, and I have a D-U-N-S number.
