Overview

I am a communications expert with over 10 years of experience leading strategy, brand creation and content development. I’ve worked with individual leaders and authors whose backgrounds range from local community nonprofits to national philanthropies to international businesses. Leaders come to me with stories, messages, and visions they want to use to inspire and engage others in their work, but they aren’t quite sure how to do so.

My work is to meet each leader and author where they are and help provide a path to get their words on paper (or screen) and ideas into the world. I help leaders clarify their work and ideas, and then discover and sharpen their creative voice. I work with them to define key messages and target audiences, and then identify and articulate brand identify for themselves and their book. Finally, I work to determine the best publishing and post-publishing marketing strategies for their unique goals.

I specialize in writing about topics related to social impact and social innovation--social enterprise, impact investing, nonprofits, government collaboration, community service, systems change, racial equity, and racial justice. I've worked with major publishers like Simon & Schuster (Adams Media), McGraw Hill, Berrett-Koehler, and others.

Here are testimonials from some of my clients:

“Jeff is thorough, reliable and thoughtful in all of his work. Very rarely do you find someone who can be both technical and creative in exploring the best way to capture and share your voice. Working with Jeff continues to be a highlight in both my personal and professional life as he takes into account who we are as entire beings and expertly weaves it in to our stories.”


– JaNay Queen Nazaire, Senior Advisor, PSG


“I often tell Jeff ‘you make me make sense’ because he has a way of listening, asking pertinent questions, and translating into succinct content that connects the dots and captures my voice. He’s amazing to work with and we’re grateful for his partnership.”


– Tynesia Boyea-Robinson, President and CEO, CapEQ


“I’ve worked with Jeff on various writing projects for over a decade. No matter the assignment, he has consistently demonstrated a sharp editorial eye, and a reliable ability to produce content in the shape—and at the pace—I’ve needed it. He is the very definition of a great collaborator.”


– William Burckart, President, The Investment Integration Project (TIIP)

After a few years of researching and determining the subject matter, I got stuck trying to figure out how to organize my thoughts. Jeff was able to review the collection of essays I had already written, and provided me with a great outline with suggestions for which pieces to draw on for each section. I still have a ways to go, but I'm unstuck thanks to Jeff's help. Thank you, Jeff.

Thanks so much Gregory! I really enjoyed working with you on this. So glad you are feeling unstuck. That’s always my goal! Best of luck.

Jeff is the consummate professional. From my first interactions with him, I felt comfortable that our partnership was going to a positive one. Jeff has a ability to take all of the content that I give him and condense it to make content concise and easy for my readers. I look forward to working with Jeff for years to come.
