About

Hi. Need a seasoned professional writer who lives and breathes sustainability? I am open for very selective opportunities from truly forward-thinking organizations. You get the benefit of my global corporate and editorial background coupled with intense advocacy work and significant pro bono leadership positions— powered by passion you can’t put a price on (and yet, I do! — a buck a word or $150 an hour for writing/$300 an hour for sustainability consultation on select subjects) (Note: my pro bono dance card is full.)

If you think we’re a fit, let’s talk. Bonus points (and possible discounts on 6-month contracts) if you’re a B-Corp, nonprofit, or corporate sustainability powerhouse. Best part? Together we can change the world. See Put Stories to Work for You.
