Concise, on-point, short-deadline writing cultivated from 23 years as an award-winning print journalist, photographer and editor translated well into writing:

Several weekly blogs that include coverage of a world-broadcast radio program
Three ebooks in the self-awareness genre
Numerous health- and nutrition-related articles, with a focus on chronic inflammation
Content for two new websites cultivated from research papers and interviews with doctors and scientists
Product descriptions for the amazon.com platform
Google ads, automated email responses and other SEO and keyword-rich content
Editing academic papers and books, and resume writing via my own, web-based business
Associated Press freelance status

This new focus has allowed further honing of pinpoint communication skills so relevant to the moment, calling on vast experience as a beat, features, sports and on-the-spot news reporter/photographer, as well as expertise in AP-style writing and editing, interviewing, research, fact-checking and ability to develop mutually-respectful working relationships with the public, government and elected officials, emergency response personnel and law enforcement.
