Work has previously appeared: Community Newspaper, Local/Regional Magazine, Online Newsmagazine

I have been the editor of six local magazines in Los Angeles for Westside Today, including Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Brentwood, Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica and Malibu. As the Community News Editor, I was responsible for covering all six cities comprehensively and putting all the news in the magazines and regularly updating our website with news briefs. 67-80% of the magazines' content was my original material; so was the website and a weekly email blast, I am a skilled editor, managing at least a dozen outside contributers and the staff internally. I understand layout and design, advertising, and community relations. My articles have appeared on the Cedars Sinai Hospital website, the Bel Air Association Blog, the California State Parks, and numerous other websites and press releases.
