I write to inform and inspire. Explore and expose. Share and shed. Celebrate. Live.
And I am beyond grateful my vocation involves telling stories about
the extraordinary people and places on this planet.

The assignment could be to profile the aftermath of a horrific accident (been there) or attend a party hosted by nudists (done that). Doesn’t matter. What does are the details. I use them carefully and with a strong voice to give every story focus, context and meaning.

Business & Marketing

It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it. I use the right tone to send the right message to the right people. Services include:
Copywriting (web content, press releases, brochures): Brand awareness and loyalty starts with a clear, creative concept about why you’re passionate about what you do – and why your customers should be too. I craft succinct promotional messages that inform and influence target audiences while remaining honest, responsible and true to your vision. 


Proofreading: Unintentional mistakes can jeopardize your credibility, no matter what industry you’re in. No one wants to risk losing a sale or potential agent because of a few misspelled words. I have a keen eye that quickly catches grammatical and punctuation errors and can help protect your professional image.
Blogging: A blog lets you tell your story on your own terms and engage with your audience on a deeper level. It establishes you as knowledgeable and trustworthy and has become a standard marketing strategy for boosting search engine optimization. I write catchy, compelling blog copy that captures your voice and message and makes you stand out.
