Executive and leadership communications

I help leaders in government, labor, business and advocacy organizations shape their messages and connect with their audiences.

I’ve been the lead speechwriter on national election campaigns, coached leaders for televised debates, and written speeches for everything from government budgets to countless keynotes.

And I coach speakers and the people who support them on personal leadership communications.

Want to move audiences to action in support of your big idea? We should talk.


From high-stakes keynotes to after-dinner humor, I can help you hit the right note while delivering your message with power.

Presentation coaching

Make every line count with an authentic, honest performance that moves hearts and minds in the audience.

Message and strategy

Integrate all of your leadership communications in one coordinated platform for positive change.
