I’ve worked as a writer since 1984.

CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS

My initiation into writing professionally came through working as a copywriter in ad agencies and on a freelance basis developing messages and writing materials that maximize ROI through the use of various media channels: TV, Radio, Print, Direct Mail, Brochures, Outdoor (transit boards, POP and billboards), Internet websites and Public Relations efforts. See a small sample hereI’ve won a few awards for my work, too.

CONSULTING TO CREATIVES IN THE ARTS

I help nonfiction authors by developing solid prospectus materials that help sell their work. For fiction authors, I’ve created treatments and killer queries that open doors. I also guide in the process of establishing the now mandatory online platforms authors need through the smart use of social media. And I’ve developed PR campaigns on gallery openings and writer’s events that garner the desired media response of coverage.

I’ve helped documentary filmmakers by developing treatments that speak to the heart of the story, and writing film prospectus materials with curb appeal that attract investors, crew and interviews. One such effort lived on director Gus Van Zandt’s desk for a month (my client was looking for an executive producer). In the end, he didn’t bite, but the prospectus intrigued him enough that he didn’t toss it directly into his ever-handy slush basket, either. That itself is beating the odds.
