    I'm a gifted storyteller, dedicated to helping clients tell theirs. I say this unabashedly and with complete confidence. The proof, of course, is the words. Today, finding the right words is more important than ever, and I strive to under-promise but over-deliver. The name of my company says it all: words-are-my-biz And my philosophy is simple: The right words sell. The wrong words leave sales on the table. WHO AM I? I’m a professional writer living in Portland, Oregon with a lifelong passion for the power of the written word. I’ve written everything from novels to blogs, sales collateral to web content, ad copy to letters, business proposals to sales plans and training manuals. Not to mention a few thousand papers getting my four kids through high school and college. I love what I do. WHAT IS MY BACKGROUND? I bring more than thirty years of sales and marketing business management experience to every project, and by this I’m talking about major corporations to mid-size companies and start-ups, working in fields including software, real estate, law, publishing, advertising and services. I confess to having a particular fondness for high degree-of-difficulty challenges. JUST HOW DO I DO WHAT I DO? By asking questions, listening and considering what I hear, followed by collaborative brainstorming to develop a plan we both embrace with confidence and enthusiasm. As you seek synergy within your organization, I seek it with my clients. It pays huge dividends. The common thread is in finding the way to communicate more effectively, internally and externally, with staff, customers and prospects. The common challenge is in identifying the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and unique competitive factors confronting each client. HOW CAN YOU LEARN MORE ABOUT ME?

    My professional life as a copywriter began with the birth of the Silicon Valley dot-com boom in the Mid 90's. I found my voice (and my clients' voices) writing creative technical copy for pioneers like Wired.com, Organic.com, Salon.com, Nerve.com, and ZDNet.com. I have a BA in Theater Arts and an MA in English and American Literature. I am an accomplished theater producer and creative writer, having founded the Thunderbird Theatre Company (http://thunderbirdtheatre.com/) in San Francisco, CA, and Teatro la Bombilla (2001-2004) in Missoula, MT. I have also published short stories and critical essays, the latest in the acclaimed underground lit magazine Antique Children (http://antiquechildren.com/). With close ties to the Eastern European IT industry, I am the most prominent American writer for the Northern Serbian IT community, and the sole author of crucial English language content on the Vega IT Outsourcing website (http://www.vegaitsourcing.rs/). I write site content, blogs, hard news, market surveys, consumer reports, white pages, press releases, SEO focused text, biographies, executive summaries, reference letters, personal statements, and video script. I am an excellent proofreader and rewriter. I am an exacting but creative editor. I specialize in branding and redressing text so that it really stands out. I have been hired to name software, new novels, dot.com start-ups, and travel companies. I create slogans and write ad tags that stick. I am an English teacher as well, a musician, a filmmaker, and an entrepreneur. I understand what my client needs their copy to say, and I deliver beyond expectation.  less

  • No Pants is the New Pants

    I tell my clients if you want customers to look your way, you have to give them the honest-to-Pete real you. How does your product live in the world? How does it help people? Why should they believe you? What can you give them that no one else can? My advice for the adventurous: Take off the pants. Lose the pretense, the jargon and the self-aggrandizement. It is not about you. It is about what your company and your products do for your customers. That is the story I will help you tell. One of the wisest things I've ever read about product marketing came from the writer of a children's book. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, creator of The Little Prince, said, "If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work ... teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea." For business owners not sure of what to do with the internet, digital media, mobile technology or social media, I am their digital marketing, content marketing and e commerce specialist. I help them figure out what draws attention from a finicky market and how to tie their marketing efforts to profitability. As a writer, I work with clients who insist upon personality, uniqueness and courage in their marketing. Content is at the heart of a thriving company. It requires doing more than just putting words on paper. It means showing customers the value you deliver. Your customer is the only one that matters in the conversation. Make sure they know that. I have worked with a lot of clients who have been willing to show their heart. Here are some of their websites: www.beards.net, www.seoriver.com, www.mywifipassword.com, www.dayoconsulting.com, www.enterprisetraining.com and www.rezoop.com. Companies are in the business of making money. Unknown territories like SEO, social media, Web analytics and new media are a little less intimidating with a little (or a lot) of help from someone whose business is marketing with messages. There are a lot of terrible writers out there. Like anything else, you get what you pay for. My hourly rate and project bid prices reflect experience, quality and innovation. Mediocre rates will give you mediocre messages that will bring you mediocre results. If you are okay with mediocrity, please look elsewhere.  less

    I am a, soon to be graduate from Marketing school, specializing in e-marketing. I enjoy "playing" with Photoshop and editing pictures of all kinds for personal use so far, and I have a skill at observing details which might make the difference in professional works such as advertisement. I also write short fictional stories and publish my work on fictionpress dot com. I started writing fanfiction in early 2008. That helped me to develop a writing style and two years ago I finally created my own characters. I speak Modern Greek (mother tongue), English (fluently), Japanese (basics)  less
