I’ve been writing professionally since 2003, both as an editorial writer and a copywriter. My writing has won regional and national awards, but the biggest satisfaction comes from helping clients find their voice and boost their impact.  (Cheesy, but true.)

 

Whether writing dense data sheets or 8 word banner ads, I showcase what sets each business apart. Good writing is a balance between credibility and personality. It's making every word count.  That means plenty of research, writing from the end user’s point of view, and absolutely no fluff.
