I want to help those who commission business communication to think harder about words.
If you want to do better than the norm, to think past the dangerous safety of the platitude, we should talk.
I’m a writer and musician with decades of business experience. I bring critical
insight and creative thinking to everything I do.
In these pages I’ll be discussing my work as a
copywriter and communication consultant for
business. There’s a lot to read here (I’ll show
you how I think and write) but skim through it
and you’ll get the idea.
I write fiction, and music. I play jazz and folk-
influenced violin in several bands. This
creativity informs my commercial work, and
keeps me alert to the changing world.
I have a critical mind (there’s a lot of
conceptual sloppiness around too much
business practice). I’m interested in meaning,
in how we create it and how we find it in our
lives, at work and home. With these insights I
can help you cut through the fog to do only
useful things with words.
I can help you make those words work for
your business, to frame the stories that
communicate or connect, and teach you to
make more of the language you use.
Language is behaviour; behave well and
people will listen.
