More Royal than IBM Selectric


Thanks for stopping by. I’m sure you’ve got better things to do, so I’ll cut to the chase. I’m a copywriter and creative director at home in the agency world and client side. Yes, I’ve led pitches and managed teams. But truth is, I’m more workhorse than show pony. More Royal than IBM Selectric. And definitely more Apple than PC.

With over three decades of experience (do the math, it’s okay), I’ve worked in every category from high tech to higher ed, in every discipline from direct mail to digital and in brand voices ranging from snarky to simple and straightforward. I love the craft of writing, the challenge of helping clients solve problems and the pure joy of learning something new with every project. Whatcha got? I’m ready.
