I'm fortunate to only work on projects that vitalize me. I seek to share my expertise and experience for the benefit of clients who value me as much as I do them. I'm passionate about helping motivated marketers achieve exceptional outcomes. It inspires me.


My clients save time, ease stress, and enjoy greater accomplishments. We strategize to devise the best uses for the marketing assets they get from me, including: 

  • Powerful sales letter/landing page copywriting
  • Custom, branded promotional marketing videos
  • Complementary social media graphics, and more


To give my clients undivided attention, I only work with a few at a time. I enjoy working closely with clients to agree on deliverables. They provide details. I produce a suite of custom marketing assets for them. My tribe appreciates having no costly retainers or recurring fees.   

About Me.

I love coffee, dogs, anything mint, and a good joke. My beautiful wife, Mary, is my best friend. For more than 30 years, I've had the honor and pleasure of helping creative entrepreneurs develop marketing plans and strategies. Learn more here.

My path from advertising exec, to author, blogger, course creator, and direct marketer led me to my passion—copywriting and marketing strategist. Finding inventive ways to help clients solve problems and succeed keeps me fresh and fires my imagination. I'm lucky to have the time to devote to select clients. It's the best and only way I do business these days.
