Business Writing

From 2007 to 2009, I worked as a freelance reporter for the Scripps-owned Knoxville News-Sentinel and its sister publication, the Knoxville Business Journal. I am currently a recurring contributor to Carnegie Mellon Today, the university’s quarterly collegiate magazine. Its circulation now exceeds 100,000, including all alumni, faculty, students, students’ parents, staff, and select friends of the university. Among its readers are Nobel Laureates; billion-dollar hedge-fund managers; and winners of Pulitzers, Oscars, Tonys, Emmys, and Grammys.

Too excited to read through them all? Take a glance at my greatest hits!
