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

When I write, it’s to tell a story.

It doesn’t matter if I’m helping an international hospitality brand with their messaging or chasing down that last quote for a story on deadline, the goal is the same.

That story has taken all sorts of twists and turns over the last six years. It started when I was hired as the director of a cocktail festival in Los Angeles. I opened a new chapter when I moved back to my native Portland in 2016 and began freelancing for a range of media outlets.

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 Penta, lifestyle for AskMen.com and gear for Field Mag. 

Previously, I’ve written for 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.

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.
