I’ll never forget discovering my first Communication Arts publication with its examples of award-winning creative ads and design. I was in grad school, teaching writing classes to pay the rent. Planning on a career in education. But these amazing examples of strong, creative marketing absolutely enthralled me.
I went on to change my degree to advertising and got my first job in that world by sitting in the foyer of an agency refusing to leave until I was hired.
Twenty-five years later, I’m just as tenacious about giving my clients the best work for their money and I still relish the creative writing process.
Here are a few more details about me:
I ask the write questions
That’s how I learn your business, find your unique advantages and draft the strongest message possible.
I do my homework
With multiple college degrees*, I have the analytical thinking skills and discipline to research and understand your product or service, target market, competition and more … no matter how complex or technical.
I studied with working, creative professionals
I learned my writing craft at the Los Angeles Advertising Portfolio Center, where creative gurus, who worked on some of the biggest accounts in the country, shared their insights and strategies for success.
I’m Hollywood trained
While in L.A., I studied screenwriting, acting and directing with some of the best in the business. I use these skills to write exceptional videos, TV and radio spots.
I’m responsible, responsive
With account management experience, I will work with your budgets, deadlines and approval processes while respecting your company’s image with my creative solutions.
I’m connected… so you are, too
Should you need more marketing services, I have a ready network of professionals, including graphic and digital designers and media buyers.
