My work has included:

Articles for internal and external publications
Training materials
Scripts for presentations and sales videos
User guides
Editorial style guides

Go to my Marketing Collateral page to see samples of some of these projects.


I have also written grant proposals and development communications materials
for these and other nonprofits:

You can see samples of those on my Projects for Nonprofits page.


In addition to articles for corporate publications (customer magazines,

magazine and newspaper articles, many of them illustrated with my
own photographs. The main topics I write about include:

Geocaching and other GPS-based activities
