I'M A TEAM PLAYER
I do know how to play well with others. Do you need someone who will just be part of a project? Someone to provide some ideas? Someone to provide only the words? Only the photography? Only the layout and design? Need me to take something off of someone's plate? I am happy to be part of your team!
I'M A PROMOTER

When you put my creative mind to work for you, you'll find yourself simply amazed at what I come up with as concrete--often inexpensive--ways to put your name, business and/or event in front of the public. And, I put my work where my mouth is because I will suggest avenues that I know I can produce for you. Write it. Design it. Make it happen!

I'M A WRITER

Writing has been my first love for years. Most importantly, I've mastered the art of telling YOUR story the way it needs to be told. Regardless whether I am penning copy for a display ad, an invitation, a news brief, billboard, radio spot, or a full-blown feature story, I write it from an angle that puts you and your business in the best light. Your best face is always forward.

EXPERTISE

Thank you for stopping by!

As a writer and promoter with many years of experience, I want to make you aware of the services I am offering to you, and/or your company. From excellent copywriting and copyediting to development of creative concepts and campaigns, I bring a new perspective to your marketing efforts. Need to plan a major event? I can help you with this, too. I know how to plan it, promote it, prepare for it, photograph it, and then tell the world all about it!

Choosing the right words, written in the right tone, to move a specific

audience to action, is truly an art form.

I know how to do this. Contact me!

EDUCATION

 

COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY  Fort Collins, CO

BA in Technical Journalism

As a student paying for college with work-study and personal earnings, I worked an average of 32 hours a week off campus. Still, I maintained a 2.9 GPA while taking some very difficult classes. I wasn't much involved in on campus activities. But hey, the job I had doing copywriting, copyediting and helping with layout and design for the International Limousin Journal, a cattle-breed magazine, was priceless! I was selected for this assignment by the head of the School of Journalism at the time, Dr. David Clark, Ph D.  I worked at the magazine both my junior and senior years.

 

NORTHEASTERN JUNIOR COLLEGE  Sterling, CO

AA in Liberal Arts

 

What a rewarding experience this was! Coming from a small, rural high school, doing a 2+2 bachelor's degree was perfect for me. At NJC, as both a freshman and a sophomore, I was involved as a writer, photographer, and editor on the student newspaper Plainsman Pathways. I was also a major contributor to the annual literary and art magazine New Voices.

that I know how to write and write well.
