I have over ten years of experience producing non-fiction content for web sites, newspapers, magazines and web sites.
I currently teach communication at Loyola University Chicago, where I also run the graduate program in digital storytelling, and maintain an active freelance career.
My full time gigs included working at Playboy, Latina Magazine and Lifetime.
I have freelanced for the New York Post, Maxim, the Chicago Tribune and the Rotarian. I currently have a weekly freelance gig at Money Under 30, a financial advice web site.
