The Modern Marketplace

Smarter. Faster. Leaner. Thinking locally and globally.

Shouldn’t you have creative that does the same?

I'm a senior copywriter dividing my time between NYC and London.


I enjoy writing in a range of copy voices—from  highly technical to upscale to street culture. I understand  global strategy having worked in the UK, Europe and Asia, as well as US agencies. And have a strong visual sense, courtesy of my art background, a BFA in Communication Arts from Pratt Institute.


Currently, I'm the lead strategist at Code Modern and creative consultant on a number of outside startups—with responsibilities that include TV /print ideas, digital, social, experiential and all the pieces that go with a 360 campaign.


I love new campaigns, challenging rebranding projects and pitches. And when I'm not doing that, I apply my skills to pro bono causes, painting, photography, clothing design and looking into the next
big thing.


Freelance or staff, I'm always up for new projects and collaborating with amazing creatives, account people and clients.
