My goal as a writer and marketer is to create an experience — to evoke emotion, to educate, to enlighten and perhaps cajole, and ultimately to bring about an action such as a click or a call. I’ve written copy and content for most print and digital media channels. I’ve worked on award-winning creative teams, developed brands and marketing strategy, and managed projects for 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.
