I'm an American freelance writer based in the Scottish highlands. My passions are fashion and scriptwriting, but I also possess an exceptionally broad range of topics on which I can write with ease. I'm a fashion blogger, a professional saxophonist, obsessive tennis player, U.S. Air Force Veteran, and hold a Master's degree as a Nurse Practitioner.

Every company, organization, and individual has a motivation – a thought that comes into being, waiting for the moment to be expressed into actions and words. Often, thoughts linger on the verge of development due to the inability to partially or entirely transform them into literature; or the hesitation that doing so will deviate from the powerful essence of a thought that could ‘become’. Benefit from a communications strategist who will collaborate with you – from a writer, editor, and creative wordsmith perspective – to create original content as well as interpret your ideas, concepts, and literary works. Your existing communications will also be developed and enhanced to exceed your objectives and goals. We will work together to identify areas for improvement while outlining a strategy for change, and exploring innovative possibilities. Ours is a potential collaboration towards successfully creating, developing, and achieving your communication goals. I offer clarification through consultation and compose to establish literary flow. I am a wordsmith architect whose expertise is complemented by 20+ years of collaborating with companies from multiple sectors, corporate-level executives, entrepreneurs, and others. My sought-after consultation is also a reflection of my inherent ability to ‘engage’ by accessing the feeling of what you are trying to communicate. My collaborations have included: Entrepreneurs - establishing clear communication of their ideas Corporations - helping to develop written strategies Websites - in search of quality content Book authors - requiring a keen eye for creative and emotional infusion Book publishers - editing and proofreading for continuity Business startups - developing the foundation of their identity Marketing companies - for perspective to improving and expanding their message Translations companies - quality English writing across multiple industries The mom - seeking to express the depth of her sentimentality The student - fulfilling his/her written university requirements The executive - requiring beneficial insight and organization These collaborations, and more, are supported by an ongoing recognition of achievements and acknowledgements: "You get me." "You exceeded my expectations." "You knew exactly what I wanted to say." "You understood the objective from my perspective." "Your ability to evaluate, communicate, and deliver is extraordinary."
I am interested in utilizing my experience and knowledge in the Public Relations fields of material creation and writing, press release drafting and distribution, event planning, media relations, brand expansion and management and if needed crisis communications. I have 10 years experience working at public relations firms small and large. My last position was Vice President at Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide in Sacramento California. My responsibilities included managing the work on two of the largest infrastructure projects in the United States, the California High Speed Rail project, and a new state agency created to solve the states water problems the Delta Stewardship Council. For the California High-Speed Rail Authority, I managed 10 regional project segments and 72 regional consultants statewide. I was responsible for the review of all public materials to ensure consistency in messaging and presentations made publicly at various meetings taking place each week. Additionally, I managed the education and partnership outreach statewide for the High-Speed Rail project to ensure that the Authority was reaching all communities throughout the state and not just those associated along the project line. Prior to Ogilvy, I worked at KP Public Affairs the largest lobbying firm in California, where in the communications division, I handled the day-to-day operations of several major clients. This included the strategic oversight and program implementation for a statewide coalition "Alliance for a 21st Century Water System" to build consensus around the need for new water storage. In addition to coalition coordination and outreach, I also handled the statewide media outreach on behalf of the coalition and Westlands Water District. Additionally, I served as client leader for a renewable energy company siting projects throughout California, Invenergy LLC and provided media relations support and business and brand communications strategies for clients such as the California Small Business Association and PETCO.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Government and Journalism from California State University, Sacramento.
Social media? Legal papers? Content writing? It's all here, without having to sacrifice quality for a short turn-around. My primary work for several years was in legal consulting, interacting with (numerous) product instructions and manuals, and I became very attuned to technical writing. I'm comfortable conveying technical or specialized information to a broader audience, whether that comes in instructions, a white paper, or a brief media article. As I moved on in my career, I used the skills I gleaned from technical writing and have applied them to marketing, writing for worldwide brands such as GE and Cox Automotive. As a writer and producer (several novels, short films, and a currently shooting long-form documentary), I also have a solid grasp of plot structure, grammar, and continuity to help you put together your next great piece of fiction.

I am a multifaceted writer looking to channel my abilities into various written projects. I am the Head Writer and Editor-in-Chief at Off Track Planet, a web/print travel magazine I co-founded in 2009, the print version of which is currently available at Barnes & Nobel nationwide and selected web articles are available on Huffington Post. While my most recent work deals with travel and is written in an edgy and humorous tone, I worked in the legal field for five years and am capable of more serious, technical diction.

I have been working as Operations Director at a videogame website called Cubed3 since 2003, dealing with numerous publishers and developers around the world. During that time I have been asked by development teams to provide voice samples for their games, such as PANG: Magical Michael and Ragged Edge. I regularly do a live videogame-related podcast chat with other colleagues from the website, as well as writing, recording and editing separate pre-recorded segments, mixing in music into the background or adding vocal effects for the best end result. Additionally, I work as a Track Design Engineer for Network Rail, being with the company since 2006.
I enjoy motivating people and have a varied business background. As a result, I have a deep well of resources to draw from when working on particular projects. I have authored two books and love the the creative side of that process. I plan on becoming an accomplished author and speaker; traveling the country, inspiring people to reach their dreams. The potential is there for all of us to become something spectacular. With that stated, I would love to help you with your project needs. I possess a strong command of the English language. I will not be satisfied unless you are. I took my last business venture to 22 million dollars living by that very simple principle. Customer service is an art as much as it is a science. I look forward to serving you.
