I’m focused on helping brands make the world a better place through compelling copy.

When I write, it’s to tell a story.

Quality, accurate writing matters more than ever. Whether I’m helping an international hospitality brand with their messaging or chasing down that last quote for a story on deadline, my goal remains the same: write copy with inspiration and purpose.

My story began when I was hired as the director of a cocktail festival in Los Angeles, building educational event programming and messaging for the biggest names in the liquor business. In 2016, I opened a new chapter when I moved back to my native Portland and began freelancing as a copywriter and journalist.

With the Rose City as my home base, I help brands write messaging and copy for consumer and internal needs. On the journalism side, I cover a variety of topics for the Wall Street Journal, Penta, AskMen.com and gear for Field Mag. I’m also a contributor to Aston Martin Magazine. 

My past clients include: Pernod Ricard, Diageo, Bacardi, Kimpton Hotels, T. Rowe Price, Provenance Hotels, FINEX USA, Hestan Cue, Resorts of the Canadian Rockies, Thompson Okanagan Tourism, The Willamette Valley Visitors Association and Wicked Agency.

My past outlets include: Travel Channel, Lonely Planet, Digital Trends, Harper’s Bazaar, Bloomberg Pursuits, Thrillist, Robb Report, Apartment Therapy, Observer, The Manual, San Jose Mercury News, Portland Monthly, American Express Essentials and Willamette Week.

Mary’s gone crackers 

Created launch copy for three new flavors plus e-commerce copy across the brand’s entire product lineup for a major retailer.


Told the story of an idyllic destination through focused web, brand and sales copy (digital and print).


Refreshed the copy and strategy for a rock solid brand as it transitioned into the lifestyle category.


I’ve built a range of partnership agreements including six-figure title sponsorships, metric-driven media initiatives and more. Much of this came to life while I was guiding a major cocktail festival in California, working with the world’s biggest liquor companies. I’ve also successfully negotiated agreements in other industries including media, non-profit and travel.
