Websites
Your website is often the primary -- or maybe even only -- direct connection potential clients and customers have with you. So you want to make a good first impression: clear, understandable, jargon-free, and lively. You want writing that engages readers, draws them in, and invites them to spend a few minutes exploring your site. That's what I provide.


Grant writing
I've written dozens of successful grants that have brought in millions of dollars for clients. These include capital grants, highly competitive federal grants, and programmatic and operating grants from large and small foundations. My clients have included Ivy-league hospitals, numerous social service organizations, large and small arts agencies, schools, and world-class museums.


Op-ed pieces
I've drafted and placed more than a dozen op-ed pieces for clients in major daily newspapers, including the Financial Times, New York Times, Philadelphia Inquirer, and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Topics that I've written about include health care, corporate governance, the environment, housing, social problems, and economic development. I craft the message you want to deliver and then carry out the follow-up to get it into print. There's an art to getting clients published, both in terms of deciding the best venue and then working indefatigably to ensure publication; “spray and pray” is not my style.
