  • Writing

My abiding fascination with the English language has enabled me to develop great skill in using it to express ideas that make a positive difference in people’s lives. I specialize in making difficult subjects accessible and dull material interesting; in finding new perspectives from which to view otherwise familiar ideas; in perceiving and articulating previously unseen connections as well as that which seems beyond description; and in conducting penetrating interviews with innovative voices in any given field. Proficient at organizing and distilling large amounts of information into readily accessible sentences and sound bites, I use my sensitivity to linguistic nuance and understanding of human nature to produce written material that is both highly refined and powerfully persuasive. When turning spoken word into printed page, I combine my intuitive abilities with my writing skills to convey the character of the speaker as well as the depth and essence of his or her message -- through the written word. I have written on a great many topics in a variety of forms for a diverse clientele and audience. My work ranges from well-researched substantive material to light and clever promotional pieces; from serious speeches and seminars to humorous articles and verse. Client requirements determine my level of involvement in the writing process – from surface editing to the creation of original drafts. Many clients have excellent ideas to convey and important services to offer but limited time or facility to communicate effectively. I require only minimal involvement on the part of those initiating a project and have transformed many vague concepts into finished pieces that have more than fulfilled my clients’ often unspoken intentions.
