The Messaging Maestra & Friend in Your Head!
I have more than 20 years of experience as a local news and trade journalist as well as an editor. In addition, I have taught writing composition, literary analysis, and other areas of qualitative analysis to students ranging from high school, adults learning a second language, and college students.
I have written extensively about trends in lighting and accessories and have interviewed industry leaders/designers such as Yves Behar, Nadja Swarovski, and Torde Boontje as an associate editor at Home Lighting & Accessories magazine where I served under the guidance of Linda Longo, now founder and editorial director of enLIGHTENment Magazine. I have also freelanced for Interior Design magazine's online news section Designwire Daily.
Before I indulged in writing about lighting and design, I cut my teeth in online news publishing when I was associate news producer at NJ.com under Dean Betz and before this, the sole newspaper reporter for The West Orange Chronicle under Anthony Puglisi.
I am currently a corporate communications manager.
