Research (audience & topic)
Communications planning & project management
Writing & editing
Art direction & design
I excel at longer form storytelling and metaphor making, as well as producing concise, information-focused pieces. I’ve managed a number of large-scale projects, both print- and web-based, from conception to completion
I have particular strengths in creating publications, both print and online:
Social media campaigns
I have an innate desire to seek out meaning, and a fascination with creating new metaphors and myths.
Naturally curious, I have a knack for finding the hidden stories that add richness and nuance to an organizations’s overarching narrative. I enjoy bringing together various elements into an interesting, cohesive whole.
An enthusiastic researcher, I excel at pattern recognition. I can quickly take in large amounts of complex information and condense it so it is meaningful to various audiences.
Strengths & Interests
Skills & Talents
I have a lifelong interest in stories and in helping people tell theirs. I’m particularly skilled at listening deeply, asking thoughtful and relevant questions, and eloquently reflecting information back in a way that the person feels heard, understood and special.
My thinking style also lends itself to generating multiple ideas and considering many points of view in a short period of time.
I readily work with other communicators and creatives, balancing skill sets so as to produce the best possible results.
I comfortably engage with a range of stakeholders, from senior management and subject experts, to volunteers and lay public.
My past experience is primarily with non-profits – in the health, community, and social service sectors – and this is where my current focus remains. I also have an abiding interest in issues related to animals and the environment.
