If ideas were truffles,
I'd be a world-class truffle hound.
I help brands crystallize their purpose, find their voice, and simplify their message.
At the heart of every brand, campaign, commercial, and message there's a delicious truffle of an idea. Sometimes the idea is universal; sometimes it'a only meant to resonate with a target few. My special skill is hunting down those big ideas. They're usually hiding right under your nose, so it can help to have a fresh—and experienced—perspective. The big idea becomes the basis for a strong brand strategy: a roadmap for making sure your customers think about you—and engage with you—exactly how you want them to.
Brand strategy provides a strong foundation for audience engagement, cohesive communications, marketing campaigns, and visual identity design. I'll help you establish a brand strategy and messaging platform that's actually actionable. It starts with surveys and conversations to engage key stakeholders, and ends with a clarified brand position, personality, and execution guidelines for your team.
Maybe you have an idea about what you want to say, but you need help with the actual writing part. I can work with you on high-level campaign concepts or provide copy for websites, direct response marketing, scripts, social posts, blogs, resumes, and professional bios. You can hire me to write on a project-by-project basis or join your team part time on a retainer contract.
