When people ask what I do, I like to say I write words and I draw pictures. Sure, it’s over-simplified, but it’s really true!
I do more than that, of course — I also do “thinky” stuff like provide an in-depth content analysis and create a targeted content strategy for local and national businesses.
Please poke around the site, check out some of my work, and if you’re in need of a killer content strategy to power up your inbound marketing (or even simply some words or pictures that need to be created!), please give me a shout! I’d love to work with you.

Air-tight content plan development, from boosting social media engagement to increasing quality followers and establishing a killer marketing funnel that really converts
Focused on positioning clients as industry leaders in the digital space, enhancing outbound marketing strategies with a rock-solid inbound marketing plan

In addition to writing features that appear in publications such as Parents Magazine, Better Homes & Gardens, Family Circle, American Baby, FamilyFun, Woman’s Day, Ladies’ Home Journal, and others, I also write copy for national, regional, and local businesses including Disney, National Geographic, Ford, and BJ’s Wholesale Club. I’ve also worked with universities and colleges including Duke, NC State, and UB.

I’ll say it up front: I’m addicted to motion graphics and video effects. If you’ve got a need for an advertisement, an “explainer” video, animated GIFs for social media, or even a showcase video for your community group — give me a shout! I would love to see how I can help.
Graphics and Design
If you need infographics, animated GIFs, web banners, book covers, newsletters, or even a funky new avatar — chances are I’ve got some experience doing that and can help you! And if not? I’ve never turned down an opportunity to push myself to try something new. Give me a shot at it!
