Over the years, businesses, universities and other organizations have called upon me to help produce important publications and formulate strategic marketing messages. They know they can rely on me to create clear and engaging content that leaves a positive impression and builds loyalty.

Before founding Portico Communications, I spent nine years working as a journalist in Texas and Europe, covering everything from the higher education beat to political demonstrations in the Czech Republic. Earlier in my career, I did graphics and worked with some of the brightest business minds in the world at the international management consulting firm, Bain & Co.

My freelance journalism work has appeared in such publications as Newsweek, The New York Times, The Prague Post, Texas Co-op Power magazine, The Dallas Morning News, The Denver Post, the Rocky Mountain News, The Salt Lake Tribune, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Austin American-Statesman, The Austin Business Journal, The Moscow News and the Report on Business Magazine of The Globe and Mail in Canada. Earlier work involved contributions to two books by the Dallas Chamber of Commerce: “HealthCare Dallas/Fort Worth” and “The Greater Dallas Business and Industry Journal.”

I founded Portico to support clients with pillars of editorial excellence and help them achieve and surpass their goals.
