noun sto·ry·tell·eur \ ˈstȯr-ē-ˌte-luər , 'lu̇r , - yu̇r
1. an expert in matters of brand storytelling
2. a connoisseur of the storytelling style of writing
Can your brand use an established writer with experience in print and digital platforms?
Can your manuscript use an editor's eagle eye to perfect it and make it shine? Need an editor with critical thinking expertise to advise on structure, voice, pacing and more?
Want to tell the world your story, but don't have time? Or maybe you don't know where to start. Maybe you have a story begging to be told, but need a professional to do the wordsmithing. A masterful ghostwriter will pen your story in your voice. I am a passionate ghostwriter and always get a thrill out of it. It's where the magic really happens.
I'm a copywriter, editor and storyteller with a reputation for conceptualizing and crafting creative, meticulous content. A natural-born brainstormer, I dream in content.
Let's talk. Let's tell your story.
The most powerful person in the world is the storyteller. The storyteller sets the vision, values and agenda of an entire generation that is to come.
