**NOT CURRENTLY IN THE MARKET. AS OF APRIL 2017 I HAVE TAKEN A FULL-TIME PERMANENT JOB**
I am a writer and editor with considerable range, spanning copywriting and Web content, social media, long-form features, and essays. I specialize in urban and community affairs. I have experience and wide-ranging curiosity in several other areas, including education, healthcare, tech, science, and the arts.
I've worked as a copywriter and corporate voice stylist for numerous commercial and nonprofit clients in tech, healthcare, and the arts through Applied Storytelling in Oakland, California.
A small sampling of my writing and editing for nonprofits, governments, and civic groups includes the Metropolitan Institute at Virginia Tech, Detroit Future City, National Vacant Properties Campaign, Center for Community Progress, Smart Growth America, the Ford Foundation, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the American Institute of Architects, and The National Building Museum.
