As a Personal Speechwriter, I have written wedding vows, eulogies and everything in between.
I help clients connect with the people they love most by taking ideas out of their heads and creating an authentic, comedic and impactful way to share them with the world. I have worked with every kind of person - from CEOs of international companies to CPAs from Bloomington, Indiana, to celebrities to stay-at-home moms - and what I have found is that everyone has something to say and most people don't have a clue how to say it. That's where I come in.
Interestingly, most of the work I do as a writer is done through listening. I spend hours listening to clients - on phone calls and through their answers to customized questionnaires - in order to ensure that when I sit down to work with their ideas and memories, I am inhabiting their voice and making their speech as authentic as possible.
I've tried to explain my job at enough dinner parties to know just how skeptical people can be of having a stranger write something so personal as their Best Man speech or a birthday toast for their dear Uncle Albert. So, instead of trying to explain it I'll just show you some of the work I've done. I can't share whole speeches with you because I've written for some fancy people and I'm much too poor to be sued for violating my NDA but here are a few snippets. Enjoy!
