Linked In Profile

As a business and creative writer, my aim is to create an experience for readers —  to evoke emotion, to enlighten, to illuminate, to cajole, and oftentimes to bring about an action: a click or a call. Over more than two decades I’ve written just about every type of content and copy for print and online media. I’ve been integral on award-winning teams, developed brands and marketing strategy, and managed projects for 40+ technology, education and entertainment companies. I am also a novelist and playwright. Earlier in my career I was a software developer and an instructor.
