Need captivating content and clever copy? When can we start?
I’m all about finding the right words. Brainstorming, developing, and executing the best written words for all occasions: promotional material, TV programs, added value content for DVD/Blu-Ray releases, marketing and corporate strategy projects, articles, and stories.
- Press Releases
- TV Specials
- Web content
Proposals: For Paramount Home Entertainment’s special anniversary release of An Officer and A Gentleman, I pitched Oscar Winner Lou Gossett, Jr. giving a tour of the original film locations, filming recruits at the real Naval Air Station that inspired the film, and an emotional reunion of the ‘cadets’ (cast members). PHE said: “you knocked it out of the park.”
Read the proposal.
Promos: Examples of the wide range of deliverables I’ve created for networks, cable, and syndication: branding, episodic, launch campaigns, sizzles, interstitials, upfronts. Drama, sports, sci-fi, comedy, variety, reality. Read my writing samples.
Branding: The Hallmark Channel needed an in-house presentation emphasizing their storytelling strengths as a key part of their branding. Patrick Stewart eloquently delivered the message I crafted. View the PDF.
Journalism: I wrote “Thirty-Second Careers” for Emmy Magazine. For one of the Patch.com editions, my beat covered art reviews (i.e. The Getty); theater (i.e The Geffen); features on wine makers, restaurants, business owners, special events, galleries, and a live marathon reading of The Odyssey. Read a few stories.
TV Pitch: I’ve been asked to develop several series ideas around celebrities and unique personalities for Fox Sports and other entertainment companies. (Ssh, some are in active development, so I can’t talk about them).
Website: I created Film2Fact, an entertainment blog that explores the real behind the reel. The site led to a teaching gig through the CSU system.
Flash fiction: Tell a story in 1,000 words? That was an offer I could not refuse. I love O.Henry and Rod Serling, and enjoy dreaming up stories with whimsical scenarios. I’ve written four short-short tales for the Rose City Sisters.
