I craft compelling copy, and thrive on finding a way to tell my client's story and to get the media interested. I worked as a columnist and editor for an International Entertainment website for 12 years, editing 30 other writers from all over the globe. I truly enjoy running through copy with a fine tooth comb and helping convey messages in the best possible way, while providing guidance to my team.
... I live for it! Whether it's written, verbal, or visual, I love being able to tell stories in a clear compelling way, and coaching clients for their public and media communications. I'm a pro at quick pitches, one-liners and soundbites, which is so important in the world of short attention spans. The key is to make someone care in 60 seconds or less.
WEB DESIGN & E-COMMERCE
I've designed multiple websites for clients and launched multiple e commerce stores, as well as coached clients on how to take over and update them on their own. I'm still learning more all the time, as apps, social media platforms, and selling tools continue to evolve. To hire me to build your website, write and edit the copy, and/ or build your e commerce store, contact me below.
