Personal Summary

I'm a freelance communications and design specialist in the Twin Cities area. I'm currently available for writing, editing, layout and other communications projects. 

As an aficionado of AP style and a former newspaper copy editor, I love editing pieces to their cleanest, most polished form. I strive to write clear, concise articles that bring compelling details and the subject's voice into focus.

My experience includes interviewing, research, writing, editing and design for digital and print communications. I've created brand identity systems, keeping the brand consistent from logo design to marketing pieces to websites. 

My most recent work involves proofreading books and writing articles for local magazines, as well as doing layout for a digital newsletter. Some of my past projects include event pieces, T-shirt design, logos, marketing pieces and emails, original digital illustrations, website design and maintenance, press releases, newsletters, brochures and other promotional material.
