Hey, ya lil’ rebel.
I see you working hard, trying to make this thing work. Your side hustle, your non-traditional career, your “Life is too short to not try this” project.
You want to build something you can be proud of. I feel it too.
Living the creative life takes guts, and attracting clients who need your work takes some serious dedication. But at the end of the day, what’s the foundation that makes all of those efforts pay off?
The businesses that succeed in the long term are those that are able to capture the hearts, minds, and imaginations of their audience. Whether you’re just getting started or you’re pushing your longstanding business to even greater heights, I’m here to help you bring your story to life.

Here’s my requisite stick-it-to-the-man story:
Not all that long ago, it seemed my career was on its way to corporate goddess-hood. I was working at one of the largest ad agencies in the Southwest, cutting my teeth writing for companies like Time Warner Cable and the Gore-Tex Brand. At 23, I took a dream job running marketing for an Inc. 500 Fastest Growing Company.
But despite the increasingly exciting titles, I began to feel like I was on a fast track to somewhere I had no desire to go. The traditional workplace just wasn’t doing it for me. I felt like I was trying to squeeze myself into someone else’s idea of a great life.
So I took stock of my skills, then took the leap. No, I haven’t become a millionaire (yet?), and no, I don’t work from Cancun. But I do get to help creative entrepreneurs grow businesses they’re proud of, and that brings me immense joy. I also get to raid my kitchen for snacks all day, so, you know, #win.
My mission is to help creative business owners tell their stories, attract their ideal clients, and grow their businesses through rock-solid web copy.
Pretty cool, right? I love working with you guys.
So anyway, it’s nice to meet you!
