Editorial Roles

long-term contributor & columnist jobs

Since 1981 I've served in various editorial capacities for magazines and other outlets, from your basic freelancer, to columnist, to industry analyst, to highfalutin' managing editor. All have been telecommuting positions, and some have been salaried.
