“The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.”

– Mark Twain

I believe that good writing never goes out of style and that we have much to learn from those who got it right before us – Hemingway, Joyce, Woolf, Hurston, O'Connor … Tina Fey.

I spend my days and many a caffeine-fueled night writing. I help businesses, individuals, and non-profits craft messages. I also write fiction, essays, and articles. While writing is my first love, I'm experienced in all areas of marketing and corporate communications, including project management, client and media relations, brandwork, art direction and print production. I know how to communicate my vision, but I also know when to sit back and listen.
