I’m Into Ideas (Yours)

I’m excited by great ideas. My job is to make them clear, and get them in front of the right audience. If you’re an aspiring nonfiction author, a company or agency with a communications need, or someone looking for sound advice on publishing, technology, research, or content marketing, I can help you succeed.

Just a Few (270) Words About Me

ghostwriting publishingWhen it comes to words, I’m an expert treasure-hunter (“burglar” to you Tolkien fans). I listen for my client’s voice, help them capture and clarify their great ideas, and tell their story. I cast their voice in written form—from blogs to books, and everything in between.

I have over 20 years’ experience writing nonfiction works. Topics include digital technology, business practices, healthcare, sustainability, and public policy. At times, I’ve written (as a layman) about law and religion. As a former journalist, I know how to uncover broad themes, crucial details, forward-looking goals, and practical steps to fulfill those goals. I discover the heart of my client’s story, and express it to the desired audience, using the most appropriate “container.” We’re talking about printed, on the Web, in an eBook or app, or some kind of media we haven’t seen yet.

From childhood on, I’ve been fascinated with words and stories. I also love team collaboration, and supporting others in achieving their goals. In high school, I caught the the journalism bug, then attended Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. I’ve been writing ever since, working for publications and technology companies like Adobe. In the 2000s, I was a Senior Editor and then Editorial Director for the leading journal on publishing technology, The Seybold Report.

Over the years, I’ve also become an expert in publishing media, technology, and strategy. I can help you publish your work—whether I’ve written it or not.

I’m intensely curious about innovations and ideas, and always looking for new ones to talk about. I would be honored to help you tell your story.
