The pieces selected in this portfolio reflect the wide range of communication formats and audiences I have encountered throughout my career. Daniel J. Boorstin, the renowned historian, had suggested writers enter their craft to discover what they think. I agree. These selections span years of professional and personal learning. Whether as a journalist, publicist, corporate writer, educator or literary scholar, each professional foray has sharpened my critical thinking while proving my adaptability. The consistent thread among them is an appreciation for strong, clear, and results-driven narrative to provoke thought and action.

Every piece of honest writing contains this tacit message: ‘I wrote this because it’s important; I want you to read it; I’ll stand by it.’
