I am a freelance content marketing writer and journalist writing for brands, agencies, corporations, consumer and trade magazines about travel and tourism, hospitality and hospitality technology, small business, nonprofits, ancestry/family history and more.
I am also a destination expert on Hawaii, my home.
For quite a few of my clients, I provide online or other content on a regular basis. I find this really satisfying — the more I work with a client, the better I understand their business and so I am able to provide truly valued content that helps them meet their business goals.
I have also worked as a ghostwriter, helping clients write, edit and publish memoirs or other books about their personal or family history. And I have a great deal of experience copyediting books for individual authors or publishers.
My background includes a degree in journalism as well as a master’s degree in anthropology (with a focus on Hawaii and the Pacific). My writing has won first place in the Hawai‘i Visitor and Convention Bureau’s “Keep It Hawai‘i” award (print media division) as well as an “Excellence in Journalism” award for feature writing/long form from the Society of Professional Journalists.
I’m a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors — I believe I’m the only member living on the flanks of the volcano Mauna Kea. And I’m a member of the American Society of Business Publication Editors.
