My goal as a writer and marketer is to create an experience for readers — to evoke emotion, to educate, to enlighten, to cajole, and ultimately to bring about an action such as a click or a call. I’ve written for most print and digital media channels, worked on creative teams in diverse industries, developed brands and marketing strategy, and contributed to the success of 40+ technology, education and entertainment companies. I am also a novelist and playwright. Early in my career I was a software developer and an instructor.
