About Me

What makes me different?

It starts with love and appreciation for the written word. When done well, those words connect with a reader like magic. Helping people discover that magic and the positive effect it has on their business is very rewarding to me.

I am truly experienced. Sure, plenty of people say it, but having worked on both the agency and client side of the desk, I understand your deadlines, priorities, the process, and its limitations. I’ve developed and witnessed the impact of effectively written work. From ads to video scripts and instructional materials to press releases—I’ve done it.

Then there’s the big picture. I mean marketing. Communication skills are essential, but successfully competing in today’s fast-paced, global market requires adept execution of marketing fundamentals. Following formal education in the field, my 25+ years of experience have spanned many continents, cultures, and industries. Most importantly, I live by your expectations. Not only do you need to make an impression, you want the job done on time and on budget.

Whether for Fortune 500 company executives or individuals with a business in their home, I’ve helped. No task is too small. If it’s important to you, let’s talk about how I can help.
