Simple mission


In a world of too much — I believe in the power

of simple. And when put into writing, few marketing 

strategies do more with less.


Missions disrupt a sector with a simple message. Simple

words inspire supporters across the world.

At Prose + Roses, I call this the powers of prose.

Brands I work with

I work with Last Romantics.


Impact startups and social enterprises who look at

the world and raise their hand and say — "I believe

in a better way."


And they pursue it against all odds, in spite of all

fears—and always, with every ounce of their heart.

Prose's villain

Copywriting keeps missions from reaching

people and making an impact.


With prose, I help in these areas:

  • Weakened brand identity (or lack thereof)

  • Poor positioning

  • Confusing messaging

  • Bad first impressions

  •  No Spark of Life


Simply yes

  • organizational rebrand

  • positioning correction

  • singular messaging adoption

  • website facelift


Simply no

  • ​​lower-level projects, i.e. outside of brand development

  • free strategy sessions

  • design

  • pro-bono writing

  • meetings > 30 minutes

  • selling my soul to the man
