Engaging hearts and minds


Powerful writing and images, audience-focused content and smart strategy lead to engaged hearts and minds. Over two decades in communications, public relations, strategy and journalism, engaging hearts and minds has always been my goal. I’ve seen it work as staffer, reporter, consultant and director.

The son of a Chicago investigative journalist, press secretary and photographer, I grew up in the press room, in the darkroom, engaged in robust dinner table debates and falling asleep to the sound of a manual typewriter. All of this instilled in me curiosity, a desire for work with a purpose, and a love of good writing, images that tell stories and compelling communications.



For more than twenty years I’ve helped leaders tell their stories, reach their communities, and achieve their goals.
