I do indeed view it as a job, in the sense that each magazine assignment is a responsibility I take seriously. My editors know they can count on me. I have the skills and the experience to deliver a professional product on deadline, every time. You can browse through a few samples at right.
Travel articles. I've written dozens of travel features for national magazines, including National Geographic Adventure, Endless Vacation and several in-flight publications. I particularly enjoy assignments that involve outdoor recreation, such as hiking, skiing, paddling, cycling and other non-motorized sports. Feel free to take advantage of my past travels: I've traveled to and/or written about destinations in 49 states and 10 Canadian provinces. I really need to get to Rhode Island someday.
Feature articles. I thrive on digging into a subject--researching, interviewing, learning how things work and what makes people tick. Personality profiles are a favorite of mine. I have an ability to put people at ease in interviews and tease out their story.Working on your editorial calendar?
