STORYTELLER


Writing is an art. Let an artist do it for you.

You know the feeling. You try to put words on the page, but they don't sound right. You are not converting readers into clients, and although your project looks amazing, the writing is not great. Storytelling solves this problem. Telling your story connects people with your brand, turning them into buyers. Connecting, inspiring and creating a relationship with your ideal client is the best thing you could do for your business. It's also the secret of good copywriting.

How can you make that happen?

That's when I come in. I work with you to create the story your target market wants to hear. Coming up with the right words in the right order can do great things, and that's what I was born to do.

I create vibration-raising stories in English or en Español I've been published by USA Today, AFAR, About.com, SF Gate and California Home + Design Magazine, amongst others, and have created copy for brands like Fashion TV, Houzz, Custo Barcelona, Isofrut, Manglar Swimwear, Seek Retreat and more. Check out my writing samples under the portfolio tab. 

Make the first move and get in touch. I want to hear from you.
