For eight years I had the great privilege to work at Kurtis Productions as a television writer, producer and director on American Greed, CNBC’s longest-running primetime original series.
Nonprofit Organization Impact Stories
I apply my journalistic background and documentary experience to help nonprofit organizations explain their missions and raise funds.
Web and Blog Writing
I’m comfortable writing in a very casual and conversational voice or in a traditional formal register.
Sample 1 is an excerpt from a personal blog called Spainlandia I used to keep from 2014-2016. Its purpose was to present entertaining Spanish-language content from Spain to an English-speaking audience. As it was my personal website, the language is very, very casual and humorous. (The website is now closed.)
Sample 2 is the more formal but still lively writing and reporting I contributed to the Facing the Mortgage Crisis radio series blog at Chicago Public Radio back in 2009.
Memoir & Autobiography (Ghostwriting)
My client, an octogenarian, wanted help writing a book for his children and grandchildren. What began as a memoir bloomed into a full-fledged autobiography!
We worked collaboratively at first, but his health setbacks required us to shift to a ghostwriting model. I leaned heavily on my background as a journalist as I researched and recounted his life story.
I delivered the manuscript posthumously to his children. Sample 1 is written in my client’s voice. Sample 2 is written from my perspective.
