Profile
Attention spans are shrinking. If you want readers, you need to be quick, clear, and precise. I craft sharp, compelling copy to nab readers before they flitter off.

I have a background in journalism, technical knowledge of digital authoring tools, and a knack for clear communication. I know how to reach creative professionals or consumers and translate technical jargon into painless prose. I write customer success stories, website copy, product guides, corporate communications, and direct marketing material. My current clients include Apple, Inc., FileMaker, Logitech, B&H Photo, Black & White Designs, GRAND Creative, and others.
