I'm a Portland, OR, freelance business reporter writing about the latest work, tech and auto trends for regional and national news media and websites. I write a jobs column for Orange County Register and Los Angeles Register,  and contribute to, Westways,  Workforce Management  and AAA, among others. I also work as a contract editor, writer and ghostwriter on content marketing and social media campaigns. I blog at WordCount: Freelancing in the Digital Age, and am active on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. I'm married with three kids, and love reading, dancing, hiking, camping, coffee, yoga, cooking, anything vintage and the Sunday New York Times crossword.
