In today’s high-speed marketplace, no one takes a lot of time to pay attention to marketing messages, let alone read or think about them. Unless…


Whether we’re talking about a website, single ad, corporate brochure or comprehensive campaign, you need a concept that grabs attention and holds interest.

Creativity for creativity’s sake is a waste of time and money. A good concept is, first and foremost, firmly rooted in your culture, business objectives and differentiators. 


A strong concept combines themes, headlines and images in complementary ways that will carry your story through multiple message delivery channels over time. It might tickle their funny bones, make them stop and say, “Huh?!” or appeal to their softer side – whatever will effectively impact your audience.

Finally, a valuable concept will move members of your target market to the action you desire.

These are the kinds of concepts I'll develop for you.

Branding is what you do to build and maintain a strong identity so prospects have a positive image of your organization and your offerings. Any time people think of what you sell, you want to be at the top of their list. But it’s anything but simple. I’ll help you:

I'll throw in the fifth "c" – creative – for free.

sound strategies. great ideas. good words.

I’ve been helping B2B and B2C companies and organizations build their brand images, equity and reputations with strategic copywriting and content creation for advertising, marketing and public relations campaigns and materials for more than 25 years. I do it by telling their stories well. 

Whether you need a single piece, a strongly differentiated strategy or messaging that conveys precisely who you are, what you do and for whom, I'll start by gaining a sound understanding of your business. Then I'll create compelling messaging and communication tools, and tie it all together with clear, concise and consistent copy and content that works.


I can operate as an independent consultant providing comprehensive branding or component services, as a project manager overseeing the work of multiple communication professionals or as an extension of your internal marketing staff. Whatever works for you, and whatever it takes to get the job done.

Let's share some good words.
