Why do you want to join the group? Please tell us something about yourself

I majored in French Language and Literature at university years back and adore good stories, lyrics and movie scripts. I want to learn more about writing and interact with like-minded folks :-)

What writing experience have you had? (New writers are welcomed and encouraged to attend!)

I have written mainly in a business context; handbooks, training programs and customer presentations. Very rusty in creative writing so want to get back up to speed

Are you currently working on any projects?

Yes, I have started a book on the topic of customer experience - book outline exists, sitting on the shelf since moving to the US. I regularly write training courses and programs (combined powerpoint and word format)

Do you have skills that you would be willing to share with the group?

Skilled in business-related writing and presentation (Pyramid Principle). I enjoy improv and, at least many people tell me, I have a gift with words and quick wit. Would like to hone these talents with the help of your group. I have learned 4 foreign languages in my lifetime speak French and German pretty fluently, Italian and Portuguese basic understanding.


I was born and grew up near Glasgow in Scotland, just moved to the Fairfax area with my energetic and American wife, Elisa. We run our own business in the field of organizational training and development.
