Building on more than 15 years of experience as a writer and advisor, I can help expand your impact around the world.

I’ve worked with the best and the brightest in the U.S. government - the Secretary of the Treasury (Henry Paulson), several U.S. Ambassadors to the United Nations (Anne Patterson, John Bolton, John Danforth and John Negroponte) and the President’s Special Envoy to Sudan (Richard Williamson).

As a senior advisor and speechwriter, I helped manage diplomatic negotiations and public outreach, and was twice awarded the State Department’s Superior Honor Award.

Now I use my strategic messaging skills as a consultant, partnering with corporate clients and organizations like The Chicago Council on Global Affairs.




Let's turn your ideas into action.

My experience working with high-level officials like the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury and the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations helped me learn to capture a client’s vision and put it to paper. I specialize in creating strategies that will engage your customers and expand your reach.

What you'll get: 

  • Communication outreach. I'll help strengthen your media and social media outreach, building relationships with current and future clients.  
  • A fixer. I specialize in jumping in midstream. Do you feel stuck on a project that feels like it's going nowhere? 
  • Drafting. Do you need a speech, communication plan, vision statement, annual report or just a better way to be in touch with your customers? 
  • Editing. Do you have a draft that needs to pack a bigger punch? 

If my skills match your needs, let's work together. Contact me here to get a quote for your project.
