How I can help

Your brand needs a data-informed content strategy to compete effectively in the digital marketing space. It’s not enough to know your customers, their habits and what they desire from a product or service; you must reach them with a compelling message that rises above constant noise online. As a content strategist and digital marketer, I have vast experience helping small businesses and enterprise brands create a content experience that earns reach, audience, trust, revenue, and loyalty.


Content Strategy

Tired of wasting money creating content that lacks engagement, has a poor ROI and doesn’t help you build an audience? I’ll help you define your unique point of difference and outline a solid content strategy that will increase your traffic and bring new customers.

Content Marketing

The web is crowded with thin, poorly written copy. I can help you stand out from the noise by delivering a best-in-class content experience, one that delights web visitors while boosting your brand’s authority and trust.

Speaker and Emcee

Whether you need a keynote speaker for a marketing event or someone to teach a workshop on content to your team, I’m your guy. I’ve spoken to groups as large as 1,500 or as small as a 25-person office.
