I currently work as a freelance writer for stlmag.com. I write about real estate each week for the publication and once in awhile I write about different topics related to homes, such as interior design and historic properties. You will first find various stories I have written for the publication, both as an intern and as a freelance writer. Underneath the section titled “On the Market” you will find my weekly real estate posts.
