I'm a senior copywriter (he/him) in Seattle, Washington.
Born in New Jersey and raised in California, I love to geek out about writing, literature, and rhetoric. I write literary fiction in my spare time.
I was a marketing manager—mostly in book publishing—for ten years. I wrote copy and handled marketing, events, and publicity at Heyday Books, Ten Speed Press, Third Place Books, and also worked as an independent consultant. I also worked at the flagship Amazon brick-and-mortar bookstore.
After earning a Master's degree in creative writing at NCSU, I taught writing and rhetoric: how to identify and align an audience's needs and values with your own identity and purpose to write persuasively.
In 2019 I found a new gear—and new career—as a copywriter for Sands Costner, a small yet cunning strategic marketing and communications agency based in Tacoma, Washington. And in 2022 I was invited and began writing as a freelancer for Content Workshop.
