Passion + Talent + Service
And don't forget the Special Sauce
I ask questions.
I connect the dots.
I’m not only intellectually curious, but I’m also emotionally engaged in your story.
This duality is important, because a powerful speech needs to connect on both levels.
To be credible, you need data; to be persuasive and memorable, you need emotion.
I'm a creative, award-winning writer and messaging strategist
With 25 years of standout experience in speech writing, brand strategy, public relations, magazine publishing, and content marketing
I've served as a ghostwriter and speechwriter for numerous executives and opinion leaders, including:
Qualcomm co-founder Irwin Jacobs

Google executive Gretchen Bladek
Amit Singhi, COO and CFO, Global Executive - Champion of financial and operational transformation for Piston Group, FLIR Systems, Ford Motor Company, and G.M.

AVID Founder and CEO Mary Catherine Swanson
San Diego State University President Elliot Hirshman
San Diego Community College District Board of Trustees
I wrote a chapter for a college-level textbook on strategic communications, appeared on marketing podcasts, and regularly blog about speech writing and communications.
If you’ve dealt with an agency before, you know the routine.
Your initial call is with the agency director, after which he disappears into thin air and you're assigned a junior-level writer.
I operate differently.
You have one point of contact. You deal exclusively and only with me. I prefer it that way and so do my clients.
A proud UCLA grad, I live in beautiful San Diego, where I was born and raised.
4. Special Sauce
Who’s the best at engaging an audience?
Hollywood storytellers, right?
To ensure that my clients effectively engage and connect with their audience, I employ the same writing methodology used by successful Hollywood screenwriters. Theme, structure, story arcs, momentum, and pace –- that's what keeps me up at night!
When I'm not doing client work, I'm coaching tee-ball, working on my play (about the Father of Public Relations), or hanging with my family.
