I help clients find their voices, articulate their points of view, and tell their stories in ways that resonate with all audiences they need to reach.
Being trusted with a company’s voice is an honor and privilege I don’t take lightly. I enjoy helping clients through the process of finding the right words to express and communicate the value they have to offer. Whether it’s a 4,000-word white paper or a 150-character tweet, helping clients maximize the medium and send the right message is a challenging and rewarding experience I get to tackle every day.
What You Won’t Learn From My Bio
I am a diehard Cleveland Indians fan. Every year, I genuinely and passionately believe that they can, and will, win the Series. Seeing them come so close so many times over the years, only to fall just short of the final prize and break my heart in the end, is character building. One day, it will happen. I’m pretty sure it will be next season!!
The Fine Print
When I first enrolled in The E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University, I had aspirations of becoming a broadcast journalist. My freshman year, I switched to the advertising sequence primarily because the student ad club had plans to visit New York and Chicago, and I wanted to go. Those trips opened my eyes to my true calling as a copywriter. Since earning my degree in 1997, it’s the only job I’ve ever done or wanted to do. Over the past two decades, I’ve had opportunities to promote and market everything from porta potties, to advanced microgrid solutions, to homeless shelters for runaway youth. The channels and formats have evolved throughout my career—blogs and social media didn’t exist when I first started. But the thrill of understanding an organization’s intrinsic value and unique differentiators, then finding the best ways to express them, remain the same. That’s why I love my job, and always will.
