Generally, I specialize by writing on topics related to business, professional services, infrastructure and construction.
Business topics I cover routinely include auditing, banking, finance, pensions, personal finance, financial advisors, legal issues, franchising, international trade, investment, venture financing, economic development, management, management consulting, human resources, small business, workplace issues, manufacturing (including research and development and ISO certification), and information technology (only as it relates to business decisions and management).
My legal writing includes areas such as corporate and commercial, criminal, civil litigation, commercial litigation, construction/infrastructure, environment, franchising, international law and international trade, mining, municipal law, pensions, real estate, securities, and trusts and estates. I also write about legal education. Please also see Corporate Communications Webpage: Corporate Communications
I believe that, as a professional writer, I can handle other topics as well. For example, I wrote the entire (5 articles) Toronto Fashion Week supplement for the National Post. I have written about gardening and landscape architecture and profiles of private schools. I also wrote contract travel articles for Canadian Press for four years.
On a retainer basis, I have written and edited award-winning full-colour national and regional publications for some of Canada’s most prestigious associations. This includes serving as inaugural managing editor for CCCA Magazine for the Canadian Corporate Counsel Association of the Canadian Bar Association, from start-up phase through to quarterly frequency. I have been editor/managing editor and writer for associations as varied as the Toronto Construction Association, Canadian Office Products Association and the Canadian Franchise Association.
