CopyWriting, Layout & Production

what is an 'uncommon perspective'?

It's a natural curiosity in the world of vertical creative.

It's an experienced familiarity with the goals and challenges of every phase of the digital and print publishing and production processes, from concept art and first drafts to the dimensions and weight of the master shipping case. It's taking a step back to empathize with your prospective reader or customer. It's in forging lasting relationships with your freelancers, support staff, and vendors to manifest your vision.

You may be asking yourself: are you really the client for me?
  • If you're looking for a permanent copywriter or production editor, no. 
  • If you're looking to clean up a feature article, workshop a manuscript, or tighten and naturalize dialog in your teleplay, yes!
  • If you're looking for a guru to motivate you and awaken your creative passion, no. 
  • If you're already passionate about your creative vision, and you're not sure how to take the next step, yes!
  • If you're a company or firm looking for a solutions specialist in digital content or print production needs...possibly?
  • While I'm available for production management engagements on a temporary or project basis, I encourage prospective clients to determine our compatibility not only based on my previous production experience, but also on a shared vision. If aesthetics are part of our engagement, you should not only like what you see here--you should have an idea of how my skills are best suited to meet your vision. If that's already clear to you, let's talk!

Wild & Wonderful

In the course of my usual duties, I've done slightly cheeky things from ordering reprint copies of Anton LaVey's The Satanic Rituals to copyediting a sultry novel about an invisible woman. I've also done entirely wholesome things like assisting in the compilation of a saddle-stitch pamplet-sized regional business guide, and shot photos for a feature about nature trails on or near the Delaware River.

Got an eclectic project? Maybe something downright bizarre? My portfolio ranges from general audiences to more alternative demographics. If you have something a little 'out-there' and you're looking for a contrasting lens, I can show you a different dimension of my creative endeavors. Just ask!

Project Management 

"Do you do ________?"

As a client and a designer, you and I have two cooperative thresholds. If the playful passion you see here ties into the task you want me to tackle, we've crossed the first. A thoughtful discussion of your vision crosses us over the second and into the workshop.

Spot Commission

I'm available for graphic art or photographic commissions for a predetermined price. This might be as simple as getting you ground-level b-reel, editing a photo, or mocking up test package or recreate a prop.


Leave a phone message on '20 Am I a Hack'. Yes, that's 202 642 H-A-C-K,
and I know you're more clever than the autodialer that can't decipher my impenentrable code above.
