I'm a senior-level communication expert, with more than 15 years of experience and a long list of happy clients. I'm as comfortable writing for the boardroom as blogging about popular culture — and everything in between.

I am adept at carrying branding through all content in a consistent way and promoting brands in creative, effective ways.

My Approach

In journalism school at the University of Texas at Austin, they taught aspiring writers to never forget the "who, what, when, where, why, and how" of every story. But more important, we had to nail the "who cares?" angle.

About Me
