Copy services and creative development for advertising, marketing and fundraising; servicing the entire Bay Area. My background includes many years of ad agency work, professional fundraising consultation and journalism. I offer a broad range of services including:

-Conceptualization for new projects.
-Editorial support for ongoing campaigns.
-Copy and editorial support for commercial and industrial projects.
-Consumer and B2B targets.
-Creative consultation.
-Injecting good humor where appropriate.
-Functioning as your point man for a sales presentation. I can also help you prepare for an important speech or presentation. My background in sales and marketing gives me insight into sales theory and how to close an important account. These services are especially helpful to non-native English speakers, who have become business leaders in America.

My background includes:
-Developing effective copy for agency and freelance clients.
-Working closely with creative directors to coordinate art, copy, audio and other visual components.
-Copy and editorial support for commercial and academic presentations.
-Extensive work as a journalist, radio host and other media work.
-Pitchman for TV and radio spots.
-Teaching non-native English speakers how to improve their verbal and written English presentations.

For some reason, all commercial clients these days INSIST on Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDA). Frankly, I think it's pretty silly most of the time, but I have to honor it. This restricts my ability to show current commercial work. As such, here are current writing samples for you to evaluate, selected from my online publications:
