Speech/Comedy Writing

I have written speeches and scripts for the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center for several years and had the privilege of working with Bruce Vilanch and writing for Renee Zellweger, Jennifer Coolidge, and Gina Gershon. I also created and wrote for Funny But Mean, a sketch comedy group that has appeared in New York's UCB Theater, the Improv Cafe, San Francisco's Marines' Memorial Theater, and Sketchfest.

Advertising & Direct Outreach

From concepting to completion, I work to create copy that functions seamlessly with the design to formulate a holistic message.  Whether you're using humor to catch the attention of symphony programmers, or send a message to constituents on what you're doing, my agency experience has trained me to dynamically merge visual elements and the written word to impact your audience.

Website Copy/Blog

This boutique floral shop in Manhattan was looking for copy that spoke to their professional clientele while also creating an intimate feel as well as an ongoing weekly blog that entertained readers.

Features

I have had both fiction and non-fiction articles published for several magazines. I have also written extensively on theater in San Francisco including theatrical reviews and interest pieces. (Articles furnished upon request.)
