For more than 15 years, I've worked as an award-winning journalist, writer, producer, managing editor, artist, manager, web designer, and web content manager, digital communications and social strategist and now senior speechwriter.

My first published business book, "A Necessary Evil: Managing Employee Activity on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn ... and the Hundreds of Other Social Media Sites," was a bestseller within the first week of its release.

In early 2018, I began working in the esteemed public affairs division of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), where I manage the SHRM Speakers Bureau.

SHRM is the world's largest association dedicated to the HR profession and has more than 285,000 members worldwide. As a technology editor, I become a subject matter expert on the evolution of HR Technology, Social Media Strategies, and Global Human Resources. I also directed the editorial division's social media strategy.

As a business reporter and political correspondent for The Associated Press and as Gannett News Service's Entertainment Editor based out of USA Today headquarters, my byline has appeared in every major newspaper in the this country, including USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and countless other publications in dozens of languages worldwide.

I've covered everything all over the world --from the White House and Hollywood to the boardroom and beyond. I've also written for radio, television, magazines, and the theater.

I’ve also cross crossed the globe for SHRM - interviewing and speaking to HR professionals from California and Florida to to Germany and India.

Let me know what you think of my business book!

And I'll let you know when my new novel debuts.
