I have worked as a senior copywriter and content strategist for the large and the not-so-large. From brainstorming with startups, and non-profits, to UX writing for Planned Parenthood and multi-billion dollar real estate projects. I enjoy researching and writing for diverse audiences using taut, engaging prose – amusing or otherwise (see gallery below).
As an (actor-trained) speechwriter I have written for business leaders of all stripes. I have put words into the mouths of the powerful to help Wall Street's most prominent CEOs master the universe of public speaking. I have also been known to include a few jokes. Sometimes, they've even gotten a laugh...
I was writer and story editor for this amazing little movie. Eight years in the making, A Son of Man was chosen as Ecuador's official entry in the foreign-language category for the 91st Academy Awards, 2019. The film goes into general release this October.
Some of the most fun I’ve had was working as a product reviewer, talking up (or down!) all the weird and wonderful items you never knew you needed – from whisky and wine, to luggage tags and lip gloss (all basic essentials, surely).
My first novel was published (pseudonymously) in 2017. An ELLE BOOK OF THE MONTH, it was longlisted for THE AUTHORS' CLUB BEST FIRST NOVEL AWARD, 2018. I've just completed my second, a crime-y, psychological thriller set in New York.
