Horizon Federal Credit Union redesigned its website in 2018, with graphics, technical & artistic management support of Philly-based SK Advertising.

Eager to launch a newer, greener lifestyle? Check out my website, The Reductionist, for simple tips on sustainable living.

What's your LinkedIn profile look like? Does it shine & dazzle, or is it lackluster, just kind of hanging there with a bunch of snooze-inducing data and bullet points? I can help! I craft professional brand narratives for job-seekers who are, frankly, crushing it in their various fields & eager to take their careers to the next level. I paint the picture of your career success while giving potential employers a taste of what it'd be like to work with you. I keep my clients' profiles confidential so I can't share them here, unfortunately, but I can share that I've learned loads about industries like tech, sales & pharma, positioning me well to write for a broader range of organizations.

Pittsburgh Brown Mamas Founder Muffy Mendoza has been leading the charge to help "make moms better moms, make dads better dads, children become better adults, and ultimately, communities become better communities."

Now he’s a Professional Development Coordinator for Carnegie Science Center, and he spends his days convincing teachers that STEM isn’t just meaningful and necessary, but that it should be fun and affordable, too. He sat down with me for this interview piece that appeared on the Remake Learning blog in the summer of 2017.
