When it comes to words, I’m an expert treasure-hunter. (That’s “burglar” to you Tolkien fans.) I listen for your voice, help you capture and clarify your great ideas, and tell your story. As a writer, I cast your voice in written form—from blogs to books, and everything in between.

I have over 20 years’ experience writing nonfiction works. Topics include digital technology, business practices, healthcare, sustainability, and public policy. At times, I’ve written (as a layman) about law and religion. As a former journalist, I know how to uncover broad themes, crucial details, forward-looking goals—and practical steps to reach them. I discover the heart of your story, and express it to the desired audience, using the most appropriate “container.” We’re talking about printed, on the Web, in an eBook or app, interactive video, or maybe a story medium that hasn’t been invented yet.

Work experience

Ghostwriter, Editor, and Publishing Consultant

April, 2009 – Present (almost 10 years)

Throughout my career, I have worked with people and companies that offer great ideas and promising new technologies. My best tool for helping them disseminate their ideas (and building their brand) is through the written word.

Both as a ghostwriter and under my own name, I've written and edited nonfiction works both long and short. These include educational texts, business and professional guidance, and technology exposition.

In addition to the actual writing, I also advise clients on the intricacies of the publishing process, including the author's promotional platform, and the technical aspects of book creation and distribution.
