If you need great scriptwriting or punching up copy with humor, I'm for you. I have twenty years of experience including writing for Disney and am happy to make your product shine. I thrive when challenged and my hyper-imagination also soarsI in video explainer scripts, web content, sales letters, and editing.

What separates me from other mainstream writers is my instantaneous knack for producing out-of-the-box ideas. I want my clients to succeed in their endeavors and examine every aspect of a project and usually know instantly what's missing. -- Hiring me will get you in the spotlight in today's tough market.

My worldwide clients include: Sprint, Hilton International, Eric Bailey Global, Project Eve, The App Store, Diet Revelations, and more including numerous scriptwriters needing a rewrite or mentor. -- I enjoy shifting gears thereby ensuring a fresh approach for each client.


Service Description
After accepting my proposal, I usually have a phone conference before starting a new project so we're both on the same page. In short, we work in tandem and become partners in your success.

For business clients, I research your market or competitors first, then explain what makes you or your company unique.

Then after an agreed upon course of action, I begin the first draft. Run it by you. Engage in rewrites until you are close to ecstatic with the results. I also revel in the challenge of achieving stellar work whether it's a script or copywriting from small projects such as sales letters to corporate web copy to feature films. All are equally important to me.
