About Me

I am a freelance writer and designer living in the Metro East, IL area. I specialize in designing great content, websites, and marketing materials for small businesses. In addition to websites, I also write for blogs and magazines. I run a small sideline business repairing and restoring vintage photographs and I also have an Etsy shop where many of my designs and photos are featured. I enjoy a variety of creative pursuits and believe that my days are best spent using my creativity to benefit others - whether it be with great copywriting and desing or via my own writing and knowledge about business related subjects.

My Professional Philosophy

Your content is essentially your "voice" - and your voice is what gives visitors that all-important first impression. Words have the power to teach, empower, and persuade. For your business to be the best it can be, your copy and design need to meet the high expectations your users will demand.

Great content embodies so much more than mere words on the screen. Fonts, colors, graphics, the "tone" of the copy all play a vital role in projecting your image. Great design captures and holds the attention of prospective clients and it is an investment in your success. In this day and age there are a LOT of things vying for a viewers attention - so great design and content on all levels is essential.
