Thought Leadership Writer

I'm an independent writer & editor with a specialism in the production of research-driven thought leadership publications for the senior management of public affairs and governmental relations advisory firms, international law firms, management consulting firms, financial services organizations, international non-governmental organizations, public policy think-tanks and multinational corporations.

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 and financial services.

Throughout my career I've regularly written about international business strategies for publications including the Wall Street Journal Europe, The Lawyer, Asian Legal Business, Axial Market, Marketing in Asia, the European Journal, and Remaking Law Firms. I'm the author of A Comprehensive Guide to the Asia-Pacific Legal Markets.

I'm a graduate of Google Squared Online Marketing Leadership Course, 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'm an active member of the District of Columbia Bar.
