I specialize in providing writing, editing and business English communications services to professionals in law and governmental relations, management consulting, and globalizing companies and startups.

I began my career serving as a writer to President George HW Bush in The White House and went on to serve in senior staff roles in the California Legislature, where my focus included legislative drafting and media communications.

I later worked as an aide to former British Foreign Secretary & EU Negotiator for the Former Yugoslavia David Owen, where I drafted & edited semi-scholarly publications and media relations materials during the campaign in support of the UK’s continued presence in the EU, while remaining outside the Euro currency zone.

I then began a focus on business development and communications for international professional services firms specializing in governmental relations and public affairs, legal services, and middle market-focused investment banking services.

Most notably, I established and directed an EU-focused business development initiative for Patton Boggs LLP, where I helped the firm identify, pursue and capture new business from sovereign governments, multinational companies, private equity funds, trade associations, and startups.

I hold a Certificate in EU Studies from Sciences Po in Paris, a Juris Doctor from the University of San Diego School of Law and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Loyola Marymount University.

I am an active member of the District of Columbia Bar.
