Special Projects


My early career as a photographer, my middle career as a technical writer and software engineer, and my later career as a publisher/editor have given me a solid foundation for a career as a media communications professional. I am currently pursuing opportunities in a leadership role that can take advantage of my many years in the workforce and my wide range of experience.
I started my career at Georgia State University (GSU) as a writer, photographer, and Photo Editor for the Signal, the GSU student paper. I went on to act as staff photographer for the Roswell/Alpharetta Neighbor, Creative Loafing, and Southern Voice.

After earning a BA in Journalism, I entered the corporate world of technology as a technical writer. This provided me with a variety of writing opportunities in corporate communications, professional papers, press releases, online help, HTML, technical specifications, and technical manuals.


As my interest in computers grew, I branched out and became a database administrator and software engineer for BellSouth. I also served as a Quality Assurance Engineer while at BellSouth. This lead me into designing intranet websites for BellSouth, integrating the database backend with active server pages on the front end. My years of desktop publishing as a technical writer helped me create quality page layouts for web pages.

In 2004, I completed a Master's degree in Communications at Georgia State University (concentration in film, video, and digital imaging). This degree was a natural extension of my interests and experience in photography, writing, and computer software.

I spent several years as the publisher and editor of Southern Screen Report, a volunteer-supported print and online magazine for the independent film and video community.


I now live in Phoenix, Arizona and work as a technical writer, happily anticipating retirement.
