I am a freelance writer, copy editor, and entrepreneur.
After various jobs in the music, accounting, and TV production industries, I quit my last office job in 2005 to freelance in the poker world.
I have written about poker players, tournaments, legal developments, and general gambling news for more than a decade. My work has been published in magazines and on websites. My personal favorites are interview-driven articles featuring players, their experiences and perspectives. I enjoy telling people's stories and offering insight into lives lived off the beaten path.
In the past few years, my poker work has appeared in the USA Today Sports section, as well as almost daily on Poker Update and now Legal US Poker Sites. I was also responsible for all of the news links/summaries and site administration for PokerScout for nearly six years.
As for my foray into work outside of the gambling world, I recently wrote for an upstart, left-leaning news website called Reality Watchdog. And my first piece on a famous Italian neighborhood in St. Louis appeared in the Summer 2017 magazine issue of Italian America.
I recently moved back to my hometown of St. Louis after living in Los Angeles for 14 years and Las Vegas for two years. I live with my two dogs in St. Louis County. I volunteer with several organizations to help feed the unhoused in St. Louis City and fight for racial justice.
