What I do

I write great material -- from snappy blog posts to compelling grant applications -- to help you express yourself authentically and dynamically. I work with large companies, small start-ups, nonprofit organizations, foundations, and individuals.

I am a versatile writer and a quick study, which means I work on a wide range of assignments in a variety of fields. For example, in a given week I might be managing a Twitter feed about biocultural diversity, shaping an annual report for a women’s organization, and composing a grant application for a paper company. I might be writing a web story on tigers for an environmental group, blogging about small business, and penning a speech on education for a foundation executive.

I work with clients to discern their needs and plan how concise, compelling copy can help them reach their goals. Here’s a non-exhaustive list of what I do; if you need anything not listed here, chances are I can deliver!
