Each year I prepare or copy-edit nearly 1,000,000 words of business writing for a retained search firm that places communications executives at the most prominent brands in the world. Our C-suite audience expects flawless, incisive content. I ensure they get it. My role has also expanded to include a variety of business development, operations and legal work. I serve on the firm's management committee.
Writer and Editor

Lawyers, consultants and executives – many of whom remained clients for years – hired me for challenging research and writing projects, often on seemingly impossible deadlines. Typical work product included legal briefs; arbitration rulings; book proposals, outlines, and drafts; web content; and a variety of data-intensive research projects.
