As a freelance writer, I have travelled extensively to New York City, Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, Memphis, Phoenix and Los Angeles. I have just returned from a trip to the San Francisco area. I am hoping to go to Australia in the spring of 1999.

What does this have to do with your position? As a traveller, I'm not afraid to take chances -- calculated risks, if you will. I moved from Michigan to Arkansas in 30 days -- and really didn't know where I was going. But it was a challenge, an adventure. I've built businesses from the ground up, then sold them and moved on. I stay only as long as I am needed. That may be a week or ten years.

As an award-winning journalist and published writer for over 18 years, I have the experience and talent you are looking for. Just fill out the form on my homepage, or e-mail me directly, and let's discuss the possibilities.
