I create engaging content in words and pixels. Are you a business owner, blogger or student who needs help with your writing, photos or website? I can assist you while being mindful of your budget and deadlines.
Writing, Rewriting and Upgrading Current Content
I understand, you’re at a loss for words to express just how unique and useful your services are. Or you have a wordy, flat piece of writing that needs to be concise, catchy and persuasive. Perhaps your professional bio and About page need revisions to capture what sets your startup apart.
I can provide original, creative content, or infuse existing content with substance, punch and panache. Interested in hiring me? Check out my portfolio to see if I’ll mesh with your project.
I’m an award-winning multimedia journalist covering wide-ranging topics (including business, technology and the arts) for various publications, including Newsday.
I specialize in feature stories about successful people in various walks of life, from small business owners to athletes. I even write obituaries.
Need an evergreen or in-depth story on a certain subject or individual? Have a business idea you want to promote through a sponsored story? Need reviews for your book or exhibit?
I can help craft all of these and more.
Let’s work together to develop your story idea. I’ll take the time to get to know your company and audience. Or I can offer feedback and suggest tweaks to something you’ve already written.
As an award-winning photographer and Getty Images-iStock contributor, I have a trained eye that can help improve your visual content.
Can you relate to any of these?
You’re a business owner who needs to attract more eyeballs to your website. A parent who wants family photos in a park, on a beach or other natural settings. A Realtor who has to sell properties still on the market. A model who needs some outdoorsy shots to complete your portfolio. A party host who wants to capture all the laughs, smiles and fun. A man with a pricey rock who needs candid photos of his marriage proposal. A blogger searching for fresh stock photos to complement your posts.
I specialize in candid portraits, homes and architecture and cityscapes, and am capable of capturing many other subjects. Note: I work mainly outdoors with natural light and use an external flash (not big, flashy equipment).
Among my clients are Capital One Bank, John Michael Outdoor Kitchens, Lustgarten Foundation and AA Mastering. Check out my projects page.
