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 programming and writing messaging for the biggest names in the liquor business. In 2016, I moved back to my native Portland and found a niche telling stories in style, travel and the outdoors. 

With the Rose City as my home base, I help brands craft messaging that matters with an emphasis on planet-postive practices. I’m also a regular contributor to the Wall Street Journal, Penta, Popular Mechanics, Bicycling Magazine, AskMen.com, Field Mag and Aston Martin Magazine.

Some of my current clients include: The Willamette Valley Visitors Association, Oregrown, Upsource and Bull in China.

I’ve previously written copy for Pernod Ricard, Diageo, Bacardi, American Express, Kimpton Hotels, T. Rowe Price, Mary’s Gone Crackers, Provenance Hotels, Outdoorsy, FINEX USA, Hestan Cue, CTL, Merkle, Aerion Supersonic, RoadTrip Agency, Wicked Agency, Omnigon (now InFrontX), Resorts of the Canadian Rockies and Thompson Okanagan Tourism.

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 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.
