why.
Fresh thinking, a passion for language & expression of ideas. A storyvore. I love to listen, for cues in conversation & sound bites on sidewalks. Crafting stories—online and off—begins with relationships. Trust is key. So is conflict. Story dances with both. I love to write: brand building, scripts, posts, integrated campaigns or environmental—& poetry when no one’s looking (or paying). Comfy in corporate culture to boutique shops; from blue chippers to start-up savvy. Collaborator & sweater of the details.
