Recent projects include: coaching and editing for a memoir writer, websites for Chlele Gummer and Poetic License Sonoma, audio editing for C.C. Hart’s Weird Sister podcast, video editing for Tango Mercurio, and book layout for a children’s picture book.

In addition to writing, teaching and providing editing services, I’ve produced marketing materials for corporate, non-profit and individual clients, and written radio and web stories. I’ve also created videos, edited photos; set up WordPress websites/blogs and created social media campaigns.

Adjunct Instructor, Creative Writing, Santa Rosa Junior College Older Adults Program. 8/17 to present. 

I was a Video Editor and Production Manager, at Bravura Films, San Francisco for 15 years, before my husband and I moved to the country and painted our mailbox blue. Bravura Films specialized in corporate marketing videos. I edited video using Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro, After Effects and Photoshop; assisted with pre-production planning and scripting; hired crew and talent; tracked budgets and paperwork and supervised post-production. Clients included San Francisco Ballet, Apple Computer, Cisco Systems and Microsoft Corp.
