I'm an American freelance writer based in Finland. I write news and feature stories for magazines and newspapers. I have a newspaper background and have covered a range of beats for several daily and weekly newspapers in the United States. I understand what goes on in a newsroom and what editors need. I don't cut corners in my work and I meet deadlines. Of late, I have written travel, style and business pieces for The International New York Times as well as for in-flight magazines and lifestyle/culture publications. I am an adventurer who can rough it if necessary, but I also love writing about food, architecture and fashion. I travel, and am free to hit the road on short notice. (I have no children.) My most recent assignments have involved canoeing in eastern Finland in search of an endangered seal species and profiling luxury properties in northern Italy.
