As the founder of Prose Media, I have always been obsessed with the link between entrepreneurship and writing.
After running an online bookselling startup, I moved to New York for an MFA Writing program, taking MBA classes on the side. Every day I’d walk between the Business and Arts buildings, which were steps away but felt worlds apart. I often recalled a Sesame Street sketch from childhood, “Geefle and the Gonk,” where two aliens reach for the same fruit but can’t get to it without the magic word—“cooperation.”
Creative collaboration is why I founded Prose and what I enjoy most about working with clients. It’s a thrill to see a single writer’s words speak for a larger mission. And it’s a privilege to share the passion of forward-looking marketers and entrepreneurs and help grow organizations in a creative way.
Together, let’s write your story of success.
Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Prose Media
This service grew out of my own career writing for entrepreneurial organizations and lessons I learned along the way.
Formerly I was an Editor-in-Chief at Google, overseeing internal news for 20k employees worldwide. Most recently, I held the post of Director of Communications of Endeavor, a $30M global entrepreneurship nonprofit, where I managed digital content and wrote speeches for a world-renowned CEO.
I also founded and currently run a nonprofit, CourseWorld, Inc., a leading online education platform (35k free video lectures) for the Arts and Humanities. Education should be a universal privilege.
I have written a tech humor column for Forbes.com and have published two books, Inside New York (a top-selling guidebook) and The Art of Bicycling, a poetry anthology. Freelance outlets have included The Wall Street Journal, Fortune/CNN Money, and Reader's Digest.
While receiving my MFA in Writing from Columbia, where I funded my tuition through an online bookselling venture, I read poetry submissions at The New Yorker and was managing editor of Columbia: A Journal of Literature and Art. Previously, I studied literature at Oxford and graduated from Tufts in 2003 with Highest Honors in English. I founded and directed eFundraise.org, a social enterprise for nonprofit fundraising.
