Biography

I’m passionate about words. And just as passionate about voice, meeting deadlines, and playing nice with others. I enjoy leading a team and working with senior executives to achieve brand and marketing objectives, almost as much as I enjoy hands-on copywriting. I work from a strategic mindset, maintain grace under pressure, and am thick-skinned enough to take feedback and run with it until I hit that copy "sweet spot." From motorcycles to moisturizers, high-tech to high fashion, I thrive on delivering creative solutions, one word at a time.

Most recently I served as sr. copywriter and copy manager at Coldwater Creek. Prior to that, I was communications director at the Motorcycle Industry Council and media relations manager for Kawasaki Motors Corp. USA, the national headquarters of this iconic motorcycle brand.

Working as a freelancer under the banner of The Writer at Large, I have provided copywriting and marketing/communications services for clients including:

• Sunset Books
• Gucci Timepieces
• IHOP Restaurants
• The Auto Club of So. Calif.
• Universal Studios
• Golden Door Resort and Spa
• Motorcycle Industry Council
• Motorcycle Safety Foundation
• and Jostens Learning, among others

Here on my writing portfolio, http://www.thewriteratlarge.com, you’ll find dozens of writing samples spanning the full gamut of online and print marketing media, as well as bylined articles that have appeared in publications ranging from the Laguna Beach Independent to The Washington Post.
