My Story


As you can see from the artifact above, I aspired to be a writer at an early age. Note that even as a first-grader, I used a classic copywriting technique (to the dismay of strict grammarians) and started my second sentence with “And.” And Mrs. McLenaghan didn’t mind – she still gave me a star!

I write content for all kinds of companies in all kinds of media. The clients who benefit most from my writing services know their products and understand their audiences – they just can’t translate those insights into written words. I infuse their content with the right voice, the proper positioning, and the key benefits. With proven copy techniques, I transform their words into powerful brand assets.

Here are several cool projects that I’ve worked on recently:

  • A rebranding and repositioning for South County Health – previously South County Hospital Healthcare System – with messaging built around the organization’s commitment to advancing a culture of health throughout the community and through all stages of life
  • An unconventional RFP response for a financial services firm pitching GoDaddy
  • An animated television and preroll campaign for Washington Trust, the oldest community bank in America
  • A brand refresh and repositioning for TMS, long-time leader in education payment services
  • An email, Twitter, and web landing page campaign for Schneider Electric, a Fortune Global 500 energy management company headquartered in Paris, France

One of my most rewarding projects was scriptwriting and co-directing a 30-minute documentary on the State Home and School, Rhode Island’s first orphanage. It aired locally on PBS. More recently, I’ve had pieces published by the Syracuse Post-Standard and the Providence Journal, and now write a monthly column for the Journal’s Op-Ed page. You can can find all my Op-Ed pieces on my blog.
