Download my communications resume [as a pdf] [as a .doc]

I have been working in the communications industry since 1995, although I've been writing and geeking out on computers for much longer. (I began programming when I was 12 years old on an Apple II computer, won my first writing contest at 15 and built my first real website in 1997.)

I love to help people and businesses do well. I offer my writing, design, programming, SEO and brainstorming skills to help you reach your goals.

Some clients hire me as their "idea person" for brainstorming sessions, while I work with others on a more comprehensive level, taking on their look/feel, website programming, search engine optimization, social media management, content writing and marketing strategy.

Feel free to contact me with any communication needs you might have, or to see more samples!

Here are some of my clients:
