Portland, Oregon's Creative Services Resource

A Professional Writer

As a high-energy creative individual, I’ve always enjoyed working in the communication industry and welcome every opportunity to develop my creativity. After my initial welcome to the advertising world while writing for Foote, Cone & Belding, Asher/Gould, and ADWEEK, I opened my agency at the age of twenty-three.

Ten years later, I decided to become an author and wrote the Permission to…book series about making health and wellness a priority—as it has always been in my life. Before my happy relocation to Portland, I continued to manage, art direct, and write for a diverse client roster and their integrated campaigns between teaching creative writing and skiing in the Colorado Rockies.

This summer, I wrote and produced Without WOMEN,a short film about empowering women, filming on twenty locations in three weeks with fifty-four actors including two infants and a dog. [Remind me to hire a dog and a baby handler next time…]

With decades of writing in different formats and to a variety of word counts and deadlines, I love working with words and want to share my passion with a new company in Portland. From my previous experience managing, mentoring, teaching, coaching, and speaking, I can inspire and motivate my new, in-house staff, freelancers, and volunteers and am comfortable reporting to CEOs, CMOs and entrepreneurs. I can definitely assist on a contractual or freelance basis as well.

I believe success is defined by delivering on budget and on time while surpassing the anticipated results of any campaign and having fun in the process.

I’m available to discuss, brainstorm, and complete your campaign or project. I look forward to speaking with you.
