Research Writing

Industry Overviews

Industry Overview – Steel
Industry Overiew – Plastics
Industry Overview – Concrete

These links open pdf files of industry overviews I wrote between while working at Merrill Lynch for the the Business Financial Planner product development team. I led a team of four writers that digested research conducted by Merrill Lynch and Standard & Poors in more than a hundred industries. The overviews reported on industry performance over the past couple of years and projected performance for the year ahead, plus trends in new technologies, growth by geographical region, and legislation and regulation. That business unit has since been dissolved.

Sample article

I edit and occasionally contribute to Back Roads, the newsletter for the Sourland Planning Council, a nonprofit dedicated to perserving the last remaining wilderness in central New Jersey. In #1 above, I wrote the column "Goat Hill", page 4. In #2, I wrote the column "Red Fox", page 4; the article on Red Fox has been excerpted as a stand-alone piece in Sample Article above.
