Over the course of 21 years at Lahey Clinic I planned, wrote and produced many marketing projects and collateral pieces, working both independently and with advertising and marketing agencies. Often, the approach was to develop designs that could be individualized for a broad spectrum of services and departments while maintaining a consistent institutional identity.

Insofar as is appropriate, I seek to communicate a warm tone and to emphasize people in text and images — I strongly believe that readers respond more positively when they see a person and read or hear his or her words and feel a connection to the human beings who could provide their services.

Additionally, in an online age, magazines and brochures may seem passé, but an important issue is "tactile-ness"people really feel more comfortable vis-a-vis an organization with something they can hold in their hand.

As a freelancer, these days I primarily do copywriting that is then utilized by the client’s designer. At Lahey I often designed brochures and did photography, and I can provide these services for clients when appropriate. “Fact sheets,” which I wrote and designed for Dedham Medical Associates, is an inexpensive but professional-looking piece for conveying information to patients.

I’ve worked on a large assortment of brochures, booklets and direct mail pieces for clients like Portsmouth Regional Hospital in New Hampshire and Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center in Virginia for which I dont have PDF copies. Here are some I do have:
