About me
I write in the language of the reader, the search engine, and the algorithm to tell the stories that matter. I write marketing and editorial copy. I write well-researched white papers and corporate 'thought leadership'. I write short stories and reviews. I love every bit of the process, and I really think that shows in the final product ✏️
