Commercial Work overview...
For over 20 years, I’ve been working with a wide array of organizations, running the gamut from colleges and universities, to hotel chains, technology and pharmaceutical companies, financial groups, and individuals – molding their ideas and communication demands into narratives for both in-house and public consumption.
Additionally, I’ve worked in theater and film all my life – as a writer, director, composer, designer and producer – so I enter into every project thinking of the whole, not just one narrow slice. This infuses my work with what I feel is a unique blend of practicality and creativity, as I am always looking for the compelling angle into whatever is at hand, without losing sight of budget and logistics.
Stylistically, the work I’ve done has spanned the spectrum from straight up presentations and speeches, to themed events – an extreme case in point is the scripting I did recently for the annual convention of Hughes communications, in which all of the technical presentations were contextualized as game shows, Shark Tanks and Masked Singers. Lyric writing also came into play on that one, and with my deep background in creating musical theater, it wasn’t a stretch.
Over the years, I’ve become an attentive listener, which has enabled me to capture the unique voices and styles of each individual I work with. My work is literate. I’m an efficient and fast writer across forms… and I love deadlines. Actually love them.
