Quotations from Published Works

Walking home from school in the evenings I would travel the woods, traverse nearby fields, hop across small brooks, finally breaking through a thicket to arrive at our backyard. Looking up from the end of the long, sloping lawn, I saw our house glowing, luminescent against the purple sky. Smelling the wood fire burning, I knew I was home. From Finding Home, Published 2013

Quotations from Published Works

How can we honor them, love them, remember them and even learn from them, while still respecting them? Can we tread so softly that we embrace them lovingly with one arm, while finally beginning to thwart evil with the other? When is the right time for a meaningful discussion about the killing of children? Never Again, Again. Published, December 2012 after the Newtown, Connecticut School Shooting
Underscoring the desperate need for protein in food-deficit families, she exclaims, "I have meat to feed my family today."

Writing

Who am I

So, Who Am I?

Good Question

As a child of both California and Connecticut, college in Ohio and life and work in Manhattan, I grew up living many different lives. Out of those lives have come incredible relationships that have continued to last throughout the decades, and I am shaped by them.

A Little More? Sure, why not.

I am a lover of Steinbeck and Hemingway.

A true New Yorker, now lost in the country. And while I do live on a 33 acre farm, I still run into the city whenever the opportunity is presented.

Addicted to the Upper West Side, The Rose Reading Room and all of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Coffee at Joe, Noodles at Toto Ramen, a glass of wine at Bin 71 and dinner at Keen's.

The Knicks, Giants, Rangers and Yankees.

And of course, The New York Times.

What I Do

If polled my clients would say they not only want to increase their online exposure through imaging, copy writing and their web presence, but they want to dominate their space.

Using imaging, words and web design synergistically to create revenue opportunities.

That's what I deliver.

My Process

This is not a simple process. It is complex and detailed. None of the ingredients are created quickly. They are developed systematically by interfacing with the client to form a basis for the desired outcome.

This process begins with a consultation where end results are created and quantified.

Why Hire Me?

Passion.

When I am hired I consider it a personal compliment and I strive to exceed all expectations.

That means being on time to meetings, answering questions and email promptly and embracing a high-level of respect for both the project and the client.
