I’m a creative, collaborative, curious writer who enjoys translating complex ideas into readable sentences. Whatever the product or service, I dig deep into the subject matter to uncover the heart of its story and communicate that message to the target audience with accuracy, clarity, and brevity. Simple as that.

Continually collaborating with in-house design team and clients to develop materials that creatively communicate each company’s core messages while elevating their brands.

Hallock Agency Advertising and Public Relations
Created print, radio, television, and outdoor copy to communicate messages tailored to the diverse regional demographics served by a six-state power utility. Worked closely with design team, account management, and diverse client list (sports franchises, dentists, florists, sculptors, more) to establish and enhance their brand and capture market share.
Prior to the above I served as a professional musician, technical writer, ASE certified auto mechanic, telecom fraud prevention specialist, systems analyst, woodworker, and shipping clerk – all of which provided a range of skills and experiences that inform my writing today.
