• Writing was my first home

    My written work has appeared in a variety of publications ranging from in-flight magazines (Hemispheres), & new media sites (The Daily Beast), to respectable newspapers (The San Francisco Chronicle). My copywriting has anchored digital campaigns for brands as diverse as BritBox/BBC, Baskin-Robbins at Home, & Be Electric Studios. In addition to this creative work, I've ghostwritten CEO blogs and speeches, written researched white pages, lead publicity campaigns, and published widely about learning, teaching, creativity, and art.

     

    Do I sound like someone you want to work with? How flattering! Let me know.

  • Here are some examples of what I do with words.

    From BBC to Baskin-Robbins, my concepts, copy, and creative output for hire.
