I also specialize in making complex topics easy for the public to understand and compelling enough for them to act on. If you find yourself struggling to explain the value of your products and services to potential customers, investors or other stakeholders, talk to me. I'll help you find the right language to tell your story.

My experience spans the education, technology, government, healthcare, non-profit and consumer goods and services sectors. Nonprofits include Chernobyl Children International (www.chernobyl-international.com), The Elmezzi Foundation (elmezzi.org), Chapters/Indigo (loveofreading.org), and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada (thehearttruth.ca). Consumer/tech companies include Roam Mobility (roammobility.com), Kinjoe (kinjoe.com), and Lemon (lemon.com).

I have written for award-winning campaigns, including an International Association of Business Communicators' Silver Leaf of Merit Award winner. I was shortlisted for the 2011 eircom Spider Digital Editor Award, and am the recipient of a 2012 and 2013 Bronze Summit International Award for copywriting.

I have worked in every kind of digital and social media, including web copy, email blasts, interactive online media, Facebook ad campaigns and...
