How can I help?

For businesses

big, small, nonprofit — I see you

Whether you’re looking to freshen up your website, launch a new product, or want to reach elusive new clients, you need someone who is more than copy-churner. In a time when everyone has a website, you need someone who sees why you stand out and knows how to broadcast that message.

For individuals

private practice, sole proprietor, beating heart — I hear you

When you are your business, you need a platform that comes straight from your heart, and a content creator who can see the whole picture of who you are, what you do, and who you are trying to reach. I have also worked as a consultant for people trying to define their personal brand, and even as a poet for people looking for the right words to express their feelings.

For publications

Outdoor, adventure, literary, social justice — I know you

I’m the Editor-in-Chief at Adventure Cyclist magazine and the former Editor-in-Chief at Dirt Rag magazine. I specialize in long-form stories, articles, and essays that get to the heart of a subject. ESPN, Sierra, Women’s Adventure, Belt, Stir, Roads and Kingdoms, and others have all been home to my work. I’ve been re-printed in an anthology, a textbook, brought in as a guest lecturer, and sat on editorial boards. I’m available for writing, editing, product reviews, and creative consultations if you are looking to break out of a visionary funk.
