I'm currently a group benefits consultant with over 25 years of experience as an insurance and financial advisor. Creating web content, blog posts, articles and newsletters, I've also authored financial pieces for Investopedia, a leading resource for investing education, personal finance and market analysis. My work has also appeared on Travelers.com, QuickBooks Online, Recruiting Daily and Levelset.
I've always had a passion for writing beginning with holiday cards I made for my Mom and Dad. When neither my brother Ned nor I had money to buy material trinkets for our parents, my sibling plucked flowers from the neighbor's garden and I opted for the safer route of crayon on construction paper. My labor of love eventually gave way to an insurance and finance career, before a friend and accomplished novelist nudged me a bit to resume writing as a freelancer.
When I'm not working, I enjoy cycling, cooking, progressive music, my boy Blue(who makes a cameo to the right), the San Francisco Giants and the company of my beloved family and friends.
