Other Writing & Editing Experience

The benefits of sensory deprivation. Avoiding food-borne illness while using modern cooking techniques. How to cover the “green” economy. As part of my freelance writing and editing career, I’ve written lifestyle stories and worked with a broad range of clients on books, lectures, annual reports, scientific manuscripts, and websites.
