Service Description

Story is the soul of any business or brand, product or person, campaign or cause - and they ALL have a unique tale to tell. Story scratches the core, bringing hidden heart and emotion into the waking world. Sometimes a story needs to be coaxed from the ethers, sometimes summoned out of the dark into the light.

Thatís what I do.

By giving voice to those stories, I shine a light on the heart and soul of the concept, the brand, the project giving a laser sparkle to the message. I conjure and coddle the story until itís ready to be crafted to exact specifications and expectations. That story makes a business, a brand, a concept catch fire.

As the intermediary between you and the idea, I act as shaman, as alchemist. I dive into the depths of your project and ultimate goal for your endeavor. Through extensive dialogue and questions with you through email, phone and chat, your project forms into something malleable. Iíll develop it, guide it, shape it and deliver it to you.

The types of writing projects I offer include, but are not limited to:
Creative Writing
Copywriting
Storytelling
Promotional writing
Web Content/Content creation
Brand Writing
Tag lines
Product Packaging
Product Descriptions
Catalog Copy
Ghostwriting
Article Writing
Blog Writing
