There are people and businesses out there with huge ideas, but they lack the time, resources and, sometimes, the creativity to put those ideas into motion. That's why I'm here. I believe that, where my skills and someone's best ideas intersect, great things can happen!
I've been good at putting words together for as long as I can remember. But when, as a teenager, I really began to appreciate the craft it involved, writing was never again just an issue of using correct grammar and proper punctuation. Suddenly, I saw writing as an art form with unlimited potential for dimension and color and personality. And I recognized the writer, no matter the genre, as the craftsperson always searching for just the right words written in just the right way. To this day, I love that search!
What started as a childhood hobby carried me from a major in English and Creative Writing into a long and rewarding writing career in media, finance, and hospitality.
I invite you to sample my work, and maybe we'll intersect soon. Great things could happen!
Expertise Writer. Marketing Consultant. Voice-Over Talent.
Skills Spanning decades of writing, design and promotional experience, my often-overlapping areas of expertise have resulted in a portfolio that includes award-winning ad copy, business writing, feature stories, print layout, and press releases. I have written content for web sites, catalogs, and museum displays. I have also developed corporate materials and displays for a variety of promotional events. Other skills include editing and proofreading, advertising and business voice-over experience, an intuitive sense of "how it ought to be said," and a (mostly personal) delight in creating poetry and short fiction. My software skills include Microsoft Word, Excel, Microsoft Publisher, and Adobe Creative Suite.
