Writing

I primarily write about the intersection of art, design, travel, and business. Some of my work:

Corcoran

As senior copywriter for the real estate firm, I work on neighborhood guides and other editorial collateral to support the affiliate business. Here are some of the pieces I’ve written for Corcoran’s blog, Inhabit:

Guggenheim

I wrote a year-long series of regular blog posts about the museum’s library’s collection, as well as a number of additional design posts for the website.

Clover Merchant Services

As a freelancer for the creative agency Stewart+Co, I helped compile posts that highlighted the small businesses who used the Clover POS systems.

Print

I wrote a column, “Shelf Life,” about book cover design, in every print issue of PRINT, the leading magazine for graphic designers, for ten years, from 2007 to 2017, first as a staff editor and later, as a contributing editor.

Yarn Market News

I wrote a marketing column from 2011 to 2020 for this b-to-b publication aimed at yarn store owners.

The Riveter

In 2019, I wrote a series of articles about women and the workplace for theriveter.co, a digital community that originally was developed to accompany an IRL community of nation-wide, women-focused co-working spaces.

Garden Design

I also started an online reader submission series called “My Garden,” which featured interviews and photos from readers. Here are two of my favorites:

Gothamist

For a Lexus-sponsored series of posts called Fall Guide to the City, I wrote 100 posts for the Gothamist network’s five city sites: New York, Washington D.C., San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Most of the ads have disappeared into the internet graveyard, but several of the posts for DCist live on:

Design Observer

American Heritage

When I was on staff at American Heritage, I wrote a piece about the New Jersey shore town of Wildwood, a great seaside vacation spot with Boardwalk games and Googie architecture.

Columbia College Today

Some of the fun profiles I’ve written of my fellow Lions, for my alma mater’s alumni magazine.

NYCGo.com

For the website of NYC & Co., the official tourism bureau of New York City, I worked on a number of projects, including NYC Extreme Local, a holiday shopping advertising campaign highlighting the neighborhoods in all five boroughs, sponsored by American Express and AT&T.

and as a special nod to coronavirus…my fun-fact blurb about John M. Barry’s The Great Influenza in Entertainment Weekly that I read and wrote about in 2004.
