New & Noteworthy

Projects update: (July, 2015) It’s always great to get a little recognition for the work you do. Last month, Visit California, the Golden State’s visitors bureau, recognized a feature I wrote for the New York Times travel section as the “Best Digital Feature, 2015” and honored me with a Eureka Award. The award is given for excellence in travel writing covering California destinations. For me it was really fitting because the piece I wrote (which ran in both the print newspaper and the online In Transit blog) was about Santa Cruz Island, one of my favorite places in my home state.

I also recently worked with the marketing communications team assisting the House of Blues Music Forward Foundation, a non-profit related to the iconic music industry brand with a mission dedicated to inspiring young people to achieve more through the power of music. I wrote a new slate of branded materials for them including a strategic brand bible, executive one-sheets and high-profile ads, including a full-page ad that ran in the 2015 Grammys program.

Happy Summer 2015!
