I am a writer and creative strategist.

My multicultural, multiIingual, multipassionate approach to life informs all of my work. I write fiction, articles, essays, and brand copy, and have interviewed authors, singers, musicians, DJs, activists, and thought leaders. My writing has been featured in print and online magazines, newspapers, and anthologies, and I’ve helmed both print and online publications. Currently I’m working on a coffee table book.

My creative strategy work has helped organizations re-brand, quadruple their fees, land big-ticket, multi-year contracts with renowned institutions, and re-structure their internal and external relationships, netting them fewer corporate headaches and a lot more money. I’ve designed, launched, and overseen many a marketing campaign (digital, print, video) for products and services ranging from perfume to higher education.

I’m co-owner of Dossier, a branding, marketing, and PR agency. If you’re thinking I could help you or your business, you’re probably right. If you’re thinking you’d like to talk about it, let’s talk about it.

Born and raised in the suburbs of Los Angeles, I live there still, with my husband, son, and two troublesome dogs. Fluently bilingual (English and Spanish) from the start, I’m conversational in Italian and am studying German. Language is my mother tongue. Other interests:  being a music snob, getting het up about grammar; red lipstick; dirty martinis; Daniel Craig; black boots; Shirley Jackson; The Velvet Underground; New York City.
