I practice deep listening and cogent writing


I’ve been creating content for many types of clients for almost three decades. I  add value to any organization or project by 'deeply listening' to the needs and challenges of both the client and their customers. Once I understand these needs, I am adept at coming up with creative content solutions at a strategic level and then executing the strategy by writing various types of content.
