Writing samples

In my former life

I began my professional career as a reporter covering city council meetings, school happenings and community features for a local California paper. I then moved to the San Jose Mercury News, where I cowrote the popular consumer column, "Action Line," and was a news room copy editor for the afternoon edition. At both papers, I wrote occasional rock and pop concert reviews.  I left to work online, managing website content and editing and writing marketing collateral and white papers. Here is a selection of my writing work.
