I land dead center in the Persuador/Motivator matrix on every personality test I take. I’m also the executive director of a creative writing nonprofit (sidewalkchalk.org). I know how to tell a story. I know how to tell your story. I know how to tell it in a way that connects with readers on an emotional level, rather than coming off as a second-rate sales pitch. Whether you’re launching new software for social media integration, trying to draw some attention to your luxury sedan service, or putting together a marketing plan for your company’s next three years, I can make your copy connect. And I’d love to work for you.

As an ENTP personality, I can't help but to be intrigued by the unknown. My love of reading is perpetuated in how I approach and solve problems, as well as the way I communicate new ideas. If I can't find the answer, I work hard to figure it out and take pleasure in the process of researching and obtaining new information. I seek out new adventures every day and this time in my life not only allows that trait to expand, but flourish. I believe that working with a team that brings a joint array of backgrounds will always produce the best ideas. From this mentality, I've gained experience in strategic planning, media relations, web design, copywriting and leadership within a variety of industries. Check out my portfolio for the results. Reach out for a brainstorm, and let's see how we can work together.
