To engage constituents; inspire donors and supporters; and raise awareness of issues, brand, actions, events, and more, it requires a coherent and effective message and appropriate placement of that message. From a background in journalism, language, and creative and expository writing, I have adapted my skills many times over in promoting organizations and reaching various audiences. From prospective college students to alumni to nonprofit donors, event attendees, and funders to press to prominent figures and thought leaders in business, government, culture, and civil society. I've contributed my writing, messaging, and editing skills to news, narrative, profiles, reports, promotional materials, grant applications, donor outreach, presentations, websites, and social media. I also specialize in combining written and visual messaging, as seen in the design section of this site. Here are some samples of these works:
