About OWB

I launched OutWord Bound Communications in 1999. Back then, I worked on a lime green iMac G3, had an AOL account, and wrote for local weeklies and trade mags. Now based in the San Francisco Bay Area, in Oakland, I work on a MacBook Pro I’ve named “Big Mac” and only write for trade mags every now and then. (That AOL account went the way of the fax machine!) I’m grateful to spend my days partnering with marketing teams to produce everything from long white papers to short email copy on a variety of interesting topics.

A results-driven copywriter

If you want to generate leads, grow sales or otherwise convey a message about your product or service, you don’t need clever copy. You need clear, impactful copywriting that speaks to your customers’ needs. As a copywriter, I arrange words to give you results.

I have written web content for Stanford Health Care, Finance of America Reverse and Kissimmee, Florida’s Department of Tourism. Life sciences consulting firm Maetrics, DataStax and Humana have called on me for brochure copy, landing pages, newsletter copy, ad copy and/or lead generation emails. I also create direct mail copy, sales letters, and more.

Who, me?

Born in Akron, Ohio and raised in Nashville, I moved to San Francisco with my cat, Soleil, on April Fool’s Day 2003. Rooted in Oakland since 2008, you can find me meandering around Lake Merritt or running or riding through the Oakland hills…sometimes for long periods of time. I also volunteer with CatTown, a nonprofit that helps Oakland’s most vulnerable shelter cats. When I work from home, my own rescue kitty, Geoff, is usually sleeping beside me. He makes appearances during video calls, just so you know.
