"People think that stories are shaped by people. In fact, it's the other way around... " - Terry Pratchett, novelist

As an enterprising 8-year-old, I appointed myself the neighborhood reporter, wrote and illustrated stories about the happenings on my block, and then sold copies door-to-door to all the neighbors. Thankfully, they obliged or my writing career may have ended there. 

We connect through stories.

Much of my professional writing is and has been in corporate communications, writing stories for a variety of audiences in different voices. I'm a solid editor and ghostwriter, with countless corporate documents, manuscripts (fiction and non-fiction), scripts, pitch letters, personal biographies and profiles, and so much more under my proverbial belt. ​

More than just writing, I also produced the following as part of larger campaigns. These are favorites:   

  • "Did You Know" campaign for Snohomish County Focus on Farming initaitive: Pocket brochure, 2007 (concept, content, oversaw art direction and production; developed corresponding ad, poster, and outreach campaign) 
    Successfully expanded County Executive Reardon's farming initiative by targeting marketing and PR efforts on vertical and horizontal audiences; this "Did you know" pocket guide was designed to fit easily in shirt or back pockets when distributed at the Evergreen State Fair, rather than litter the grounds like so many other fair handouts. 

  • Brochure, 2005 for Seattle Center's Festal series of 20 cultural festivals: Annual brochure (concept, content - including tagline, oversaw design, production, and distribution)
    Overall, developed the Festal brand, their annual marketing and PR campaigns,  and helped event organizers navigate City of Seattle systems.
