The world is filled with cheesy, carbon-copy content. You see it everywhere -- tag lines, brochures, scripts, books. I'm not that kind of writer. While every other writer is trying to play it safe by creating cookie-cutter mom n' pop copy that tastes like vanilla, sounds like elevator music, and reads like a shoe salesman's obituary, my goal is to upset the flow.

I'm like a literary chef -- you've no doubt heard of the dishes I cook, but with just the right amount of spice and a dash of secret sauce, it's going to taste like something you've never experienced before. This allows me to appeal to a large and diverse group of audiences over a variety of industries and platforms with the content people expect, but with that extra kick that sets it apart and gets results.
