Growing up with an English teacher father, I've inherited a mighty big appreciation for language that expands far past my love forShakespeare soliloquies and Bob Dylan songs. Not only do I have plenty of experience adjusting the tone of my writing to suit the needs of any given platform, brand voice, or audience demographic, but I've got a natural knack for implementing effective literary devices like alliteration, juxtaposition, metaphor, and allegory into my work. I'm great friends with my thesaurus, I love a good pun, and I can do cheeky wit better than Stephen Colbert.
Actually, let's have that last bit serve as evidence I'm not afraid of a little hyperbole, either.
In addition to Proof of Performance you can find on the Producing and Marketing pages of my site, here are some other examples of my writing.
Viscount This story was something I wrote for CMAC's 2017 12-Hour Film Race. We took first place, even though getting the word 'viscount' really threw us off our game at first.

Jackie, Howl Editing is a part of writing, and I’ve helped a few dozen other fiction and non-fiction writers, playwrights, screenwriters,, and poets with their creative ventures as well. One of my favorite things I’ve had the opportunity to work on is my friend Heather’s funny and charming novel about a female werewolf.
