Journalism, Web Content, PR, and Social Media

Since 2002 I have been working on Cape Cod as a freelance journalist. During that time I have written about everything from an Irishman on the lam from the law for the Boston Globe, to interviewing celebrities who flock to the Cape in the summer. I’ve spoken to an eclectic collection of people including filmmaker and author John Waters, David Sedaris, a head writer from “The Simpsons,” Ray Romano and Kathy Griffin.

Over these last 15 years I created and wrote a pop culture column for the Cape Cod Times, wrote a monthly fashion column for the same publication, and wrote countless feature stories. I also wrote a weekly column for the Cape Codder about entertainment, and interesting happenings on the Cape.

My journalism focus now is mostly entertainment and theater. I write reviews throughout the summer season for the Provincetown Banner, and also cover other aspects of the arts for the paper as well.

Content writing for websites is something I love doing. A business person can’t be expected to do everything and do it well, and that’s where I come in. By telling me what you want to get across and allowing me to take that and bring it to life, allows you to focus on your business, not what to blog about on your website, or introducing a new service in an engaging writing voice.

I also provide social media managing. As your business grows and you get busier, it's hard to do it all. Finding time to post on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter is important to get the word out about what you're doing, and I'm happy to do it for you. We can discuss your needs and find a plan that works for you.

As someone who has worked with almost all the local newspapers and media outlets on the Cape, I have relationships with them that transfer perfectly to working in public relations for local businesses, artists, musicians and non-profits. I have been on the receiving end of many press releases, I know what it takes to get noticed and read.

This article in the Cape Cod Times is a good example of my social media work culminating in a feature article.  I created a campaign that caught on, contacted the lifestyle editor, and a feature story was the result. 

The other writing passion in my writing life is playwriting. I have had one play produced, and am always working on new projects. I am also the author of the novel, “The Best Worst Year.”
