About Me

Raised on the frosty shores of Lake Erie, I hurried to the West Coast, got an M.A. in Creative Writing at San Francisco State University and, following a brief career in academia, found my true north as a copywriter.

A freelance writer for 25 years, I’ve won my share of Addy and Communication Arts awards. I’ve also ghostwritten for CEOs, had several books of poetry published, and received a slew of literary awards, including an NEA Fellowship. All along the way, my poetry and fiction has enriched my copywriting and visa-versa.

I live in a slightly bigger than tiny house in a woodsy town twenty miles northwest of San Francisco. I eat organically, fly minimally and try to keep my footprint light and green.
