I'm a freelance copywriter and author based in Oakland, Calif.
I help people communicate and understand each other by delivering clear content in a compelling form that is tailored to the audience.
My skills have been honed in over a decade of professional experience in marketing, including product marketing and company branding for two successful startups, and several decades of creative nonfiction writing for the arts. I bring a high level of perceptiveness to projects, with big-picture thinking and an attention to nuance that makes the finished piece effective.
I’m best known for “All Known Metal Bands” (McSweeney’s, 2008), a 300-page catalog of heavy metal band names. My work has appeared in The Believer, Art Criticism & Other Stories, Sweet[art], and Bay Area Buzz.
