Copy: I am a skilled copywriter with specialties in education, healthcare, finance, and publishing. Great marketing starts with excellent copy, and I am passionate about finding the best words to sell your product. I have worked with a variety of designers to create clean, beautiful works that grab the reader's attention, both in print and online. Samples of my copywriting can be found here.
My prose style tends
to be subtly casual journalism with a humanist bend. I love finding and
telling the story of people's lived experiences beyond the news. That
said, I can easily write in a variety of styles, and also
have experience writing speeches, book pitches, press releases and
academic work. Click here for a list of my nonfiction publications.
Poetry: I've been writing poems for as long as I can remember. I've come a long way since my very first broadside, a Christmas-themed poem with clip-art illustrations that Mrs. Colassaco, my fourth-grade teacher, says she still has in a frame in her house. After studying up on literature throughout college, I found my way back to creative writing and completed my MFA in poetry at NYU. You can read some of my published poems on my poetry page.
Podcasts: I am an experienced interviewer who is interested in hearing the stories that all humans have to tell. Usually, I help them tell their stories through my writing, but each month, I also host a podcast dedicated to book culture and the people who love it. To hear some of my podcast work, you can listen to my episodes of Late Night Conversation.
