Service Description

I have extensive experience creating marketing and public relations copy for leading businesses in a variety of industries. My work includes developing material for clients in niches such as technology, entertainment and sports along with working for a variety of retail and B2B clients. I am particularly adept at writing press releases that attract media attention and catch the eyes of potential customers. I know how to find the most relevant and attention-grabbing elements of a new product release, partnership, site launch or other corporate announcement and present that to readers in an exciting way.

Along with press releases, I have developed a wide range of marketing and PR content for clients. This has included blog posts, news articles, case studies, white papers, marketing brochures and newsletters. My newspaper background gives me the ability to create concise and engaging content on tight deadlines while maintaining the attention to detail needed to meet the high standards of my clients.

I am also an experienced online journalist, as my newspaper reporting background has allowed me to transition to digital media. I have written about a variety of sports topics for leading blogs such as “Sports by Brooks” and provided opinion pieces, features and live event coverage for a variety of publications. I was a national motorsports writer for Examiner.com and was a correspondent at live matches for the Major League Soccer website.
