Copywriting & Editing
I help companies and organizations use the power of language to define their brands, position themselves in the marketplace, and pursue the most effective content strategies. With experience in both the corporate and nonprofit sectors, I know how to communicate to a variety of different audiences and how to use content to engage and inspire.
I am particularly interested in progressive, change-making initiatives, cultural institutions, and international work.
