I'm a creative communications professional with a commitment to mission-driven institutions. In my day job, I produce engaging content for a school at one of the world's greatest research universities.
I work with all kinds of people: brilliant thinkers who need help translating their scholarly work for a lay audience, internal clients looking for great copy, leaders who want to build engagement across the organization, and donors at all levels, from the highest profile supporters to the most loyal annual fund friends.
I'm a strategic partner and a successful project manager. I like to get things done, whether it's a soup-to-nuts assignment or shepherding a languishing project to completion.
I'm also a freelance writer, with a growing portfolio and an appetite for new work. Contact me to find out more about how I can contribute to your communications plan.
