Let me tell you a story.
I help brands, publishers, and agencies with anything and everything in content, from writing a 60-second script to starting up entire studios. Don’t see what you need listed? Talk to me, and I’ll figure out how to provide it.
Ideation & Strategy
Content and experiential ideas that are so big they’ll grab the attention (and dollars) of clients and so achievable that they’ll earn the thanks of your production team — all wrapped in a beautiful, smartly written package. And it’s not just content — I’ve built entire studios.
Leading and inspiring creative teams and providing a vision for award-winning storytelling, whatever the format or client goal. Got something new you want to try? That’s my favorite — let me pioneer it, then build a template for you to follow.
Scripts. Copy. Articles. Explainers. Essays. Sizzles. Infographics. White papers. Social posts. Novels, both graphic and otherwise. Heck, even musicals. I don’t think there’s anything I haven’t written for clients — or haven’t liked writing.
Consulting & Workshops
Honing your brand, your positioning, and your processes with years of experience, data analysis, and just a little flair. I’ve founded whole studios, built new design languages and pitch decks, and refreshed social strategies for clients big and small. (And I’ve talked about it around the world.)
Voiceover & Talent
They don’t call me “Two-Take Nelson” for nothing. If it’s right for the piece, I bring my expertise, enthusiasm, and (nerdy-yet-soothing) presence to both screen and VO booth. I get it done quickly, and have garnered awards in the process.
Editing & Script-doctoring
Sometimes a piece needs polishing — or even just a second set of eyes. But my philosophy is that rewriting without rewiring just isn’t enough. As someone with great mentors, I now greatly enjoy teaching young writers, producers, and creators who are still honing their craft.
Kind praise from very nice people.
Vox has perfected the art of creating explainer videos that are both entertaining and educational by weaving stories into every lesson. Finding out how Spotify’s customized Discover Playlists are built is interesting enough for a music and tech geek like me …
I love the real-talk nature of this piece. Let’s all believe we can make it better.
(Not to mention swell coverage in these very fine publications.)
