I use creative concepts and compelling content to help my clients tell amazing stories. I enjoy working with artists and designers to develop brands and have written for startups, small businesses, nonprofits, and large corporations. Bernbach’s famous quote speaks my copy creed: “All of us who use the mass media are shapers of society. We can vulgarize that society, or help lift it up.”
