Founder/Chief Design Officer of a 21+ year-old branding, communications and design firm. We've successfully branded clients ranging from large corporations to small businesses with no existing identity. From logos messaging and taglines through printed and digital marketing materials and websites, we can shape your brand to help you grow. If all of your competitors start with the same piece of paper its how you shape it that will set you apart!
Clear, persuasive writing is challenging and time consuming – and critically important for any organization. I’ll get it right for you, whether you're part of a large corporation, a non-profit or a small business. As a successful "pen for hire," I've worked for such corporations as Pfizer, PepsiCo, Citibank and BASF, as well as leading nonprofits like the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Nature Conservancy, and the Lupus Research Alliance. Assignments range from annual and CSR reports to web site content to executive speeches, articles and white papers to marketing literature, blogs and social media to videos and press materials.
EFFECTIVE WRITING WORKSHOPS:
Is your organization communicating to key audiences with bloated text, grammatical mistakes or unfocused messaging? It's a problem that can hurt your reputation and your ability to attract clients and talent.
I can help your team write more powerfully – content that's succinct, compelling and targeted - for non-writers or communicators. I've helped finance and IT pros, scientists and engineers, and corporate and non-profit staff, covering basic skills and practical guidance for emails, presentations, reports, etc. And it's fun!
I'm living proof that an idealistic college poet can become a successful business writer and strategist. I learned how to tap into the power of stories, metaphor and the rhythm of words that add color and depth, while using the spare, direct language of journalism that provides clarity and concision.
From language junkie to PR pro to independent writer/strategist, I learned how to communicate to business audiences and deal with different corporate cultures and finicky CEOs, adding more tools to my workbag and practical experience in the many forms of communication.
From crafting verse to forging compelling websites, I learned it's all about connecting, head and heart, person to person. This former college poet can do the same for you.
Brooklyn born but raised in Westchester County, I've always had a desire to pursue creativity. After graduating from Carnegie Mellon University and serving his apprenticeship in New York, a period of overseas residency was critical to forming a greater sense of perspective, objectivity and artistry. Time spent in Melbourne, Australia introduced me to a holistic approach to design that took nature into account in a way that was far ahead of standard practice in the US. Six years in Prague, CzR, provided a reevaluation of creativity through the changing of place, language, customs and career. Trading in architecture to lead a creative team for the international advertising firm EuroRSCG gave a great appreciation of the financial consequences of design decisions while instilling a knowledge of branding that is unique to architecture.
Back in New York City and Brooklyn since 1999, I've worked for a series of architecture firms that held creativity as paramount to the process of design until starting his own firm in 2008. My experience has covered residential, retail, hospitality and a little corporate design.
