About me

Let's make your brand even more successful than it already is. Decades of experience as a native English copywriter, creative director and brand consultant have taught me that reason, emotion and artistry are the best tools for the job. I combine them to great effect for leading global B2C and B2B brands in financial services, business consulting, fashion, technology, consumer electronics, and healthcare. And no matter whether you’re looking for a multi-channel campaign, social content, next-practice website copy, a verbal identity, or even a single product name, the one thing it will never be is ordinary.
