Storytelling is my life’s passion. From making home movies as a boy, to serving as a public affairs specialist in the U.S. Coast Guard, to covering hard news as a print and digital journalist, my journey has always been about crafting great narratives.

That journey led me to RH Strategic, where I inject my unique experience, my creativity and my passion into telling your story. I thrive on creative problem solving, so figuring out how to tell your story in the most engaging and effective way is the most gratifying part of the job.

I always keep a notebook and pen in my pockets – even in my free time – so no matter when or where inspiration strikes, I can get to work. I’m strategic – maybe even obsessive — when it comes to word choice. Like Mark Twain opined, “The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter—’tis the difference between the lightning-bug and the lightning.
