You lead creatives/design websites/believe in great work/hanker for:



    I capture the soul of a company, carving out the best attributes to resound with ideal audiences.

  • Creative Concepts

    I cook up the ideas that make messages memorable, giving creative something to swing on.


    I organize messaging so it respects, guides, and enhances the journey of the reader.


    I write in a range of voices (warm, witty, wise) that ring true with intended readers.

“Kira is a rock. She’s solid, dependable, and knows what you need, before you need to ask for it. Kira is the person I turn to when I have an open-ended project; with some ideas of what success will look like. She needs little else to get going and is reliable to a tee. Her broad experience in UX, branding, advertising, journalism and marketing all come together to create grounded, strategic content.”

A few projects that didn’t require blood-oath secrecy

  • Montana Office of Tourism

    Helping sell Montana’s majesty without getting salesy—boosting hotel bookings, visitor spending and more.

  • Oboz Footwear

    Building a relatable brand, a compelling website, and a slew of collateral for a rebel shoe company.

  • West Paw

    Crafting a solid brand and lending an energetic voice to a sustainable, un-stuffy pet toy manufacturer.

Let’s have chats.

I’m picturing you as the content-driven web developer, the creative director with a heart of gold, the boutique agency owner, the rogue marketing professional on the prowl for cohorts. Let’s gripe about bad kerning, scheme up projects, and raise a toast to Mad Men.


(Please note: I work exclusively with agencies, web firms, independent marketing professionals and in-house marketing departments. But never fear, small businesses! I have some resources for you on my contact page.)

Also, screw newsletters.

Not my bag. Not your bag. So contact away, without fear of monthly updates!

“Kira asks the hard questions, the right questions, and the questions you didn’t know needed asking. Relying on her for turns of phrases, synonyms, headlines, subtitles, captions, and in-depth content strategy has made my job easier (and my hair shinier). Her unique ability to combine logic and creativity has helped make good work better, and great work amazing—I wish she stopped by more often.”
