I’ve worked in the realm of nonprofit communications for many years. Most recently, I served as Principal Editor, Advancement Marketing and Communications at UC Berkeley. There I had the opportunity to write for Promise of Berkeley magazine, which has a readership of more than 70,000 including alumni, current students, and UC Berkeley friends. I wrote on subjects as diverse as cybersecurity, gardening as a life-changing activity, and the making of the Dothraki language on Game of Thrones.

My projects included also included direct mail, annual reports on centers and institutes, and customized donor communications.
