SHORT-FORM WRITING

LONG-FORM WRITING

I am adept at adopting a person’s voice, to convey both personal and professional messages. Much of the professional writing I have done is under NDA, including public statements and white papers, but here are some pieces I can share:

Clean Energy
I wrote this voter outreach packet advocating for San Francisco to procure its energy from renewable sources.

Jane Kim for School Board
I wrote this booklet for winning San Francisco School Board candidate Jane Kim.

Milton Marks for San Francisco City College Board
I wrote this informative voter outreach guide for Commissioner Marks’ successful reelection campaign.

CREATIVE WRITING

I have a separate page for that.
