Customized writing, editing, and communications support for small firms, high-tech startups, nonprofits, large companies, and individuals – accurate, timely, and cost-effective, technical and nontechnical.

An engineer/journalist, I am a quick study with high technical aptitude, acute organizational and problem-solving capabilities, exacting standards, and demonstrated expertise. I am accomplished at grasping complex topics and communicating clearly to both technical and nontechnical audiences, via both electronic and print media.

My broad experience includes conceptualizing and implementing comprehensive and strategically important communications initiatives. I am comfortable working at all levels of organizations, from operations staff to upper management and board members. (See the box below for example topic disciplines, genres, and audiences.)

I particularly enjoy developing long-term relationships with clients – becoming familiar with an organization’s culture, attributes, products and services, customers, competitors, and challenges – so I can collaborate as a trusted partner, on call and able to respond to unexpected contingencies quickly, effectively, and with a minimum of supervision.
