What do companies like Giant Eagle, Heinz, PNC Bank, UPMC, and
Schering-Plough have in common? I've provided them with engaging, effective writing.

A master communicator, experienced online content creator, and proven marketing copywriter,
I help a wide range of clients—of all sizes and types—engage, communicate with, inform,
educate, and sell to their key audiences.

I'll do the same for you.
