With more than three decades of experience in marketing, communications, TV production and copywriting, I'm ready and able to serve your project needs on a freelance, contract, or retainer basis.


I've been working as a freelance copywriter and creative director since spring of 2011. I work with several local agencies as a member of their extended teams, as well as directly with my own clients.

Recent work includes projects for New York State, Vermont Veterans Services, major universities and several tech companies, both established and start-up. I'm also an approved Xerox vendor, and have worked with their Creative Services department on hundreds of projects over the past few years.

Before striking off on my own, I had a long and varied career in marketing, media and non-profit management. It's this broad experience that I (and my clients) beleive sets me apart from others in my business.

As Director of Broadcast Production & New Media at Dixon Schwabl, I was responsible for day to day and long-term strategic management of Dixon Schwabl's Telly-Award-winning traditional and new media production teams.

I joined Dixon Schwabl in February of 2007 as a Senior Copywriter, with a promotion to Associate Creative Director in 2008, with responsibility for the copywriting and Interactive departments.

Prior to joining DS, I spent eight years as creative director for Fusion Productions, where I facilitated the creative development of video, stage and print projects for both corporate and association (non profit) projects, including product launches for companies like Kodak, Novartis, Bausch & Lomb and Boston Scientific, as well as events and training videos for more than 60 clients across the country.

From 1994 through 1999, I helped to launch cable network America's Talking (CNBC sister station and forerunner of MSNBC) as producer for a show called "Have A Heart." Following that, I moved to Fox News Channel where I was a news and feature producer for daytime programming as well as for prime time specials on topics like health and religion.

Before my career in television, I worked in fundraising and arts management in the Chicago area, where  I was, at various times, associate development director at the Museum of Contemporary Art, director of development at the Chicago Architecture Foundation, and executive director of The Peace Museum.
