I love the architecture of language and always have … putting words together, moving them around, finding just the right one. It’s a bit of a neurosis, really, but one that comes in handy, so I indulge it. When not designing or teaching, I spend a lot of time helping others massage their own words into the very best version of their message. (It helps that I was militantly indoctrinated at Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism and on the copy desk of a major metropolitan newspaper.)

I can tackle just about anything, from marketing and website copy to proposals and articles to captions and multimedia production text to novels and manuals. (In fact, my latest project was a lingo-laden book on the origins of the universe whose chapters revolve around particle physics, abduction logic and the nature of life. Yes—steep learning curve.)
