    Classic old school communications polymath

    United States - Last active: 03/28/2014

    It’s embarrassing how much pleasure I can find in creating flawless technical manuals, research articles, white papers, marketing copy, shareholder reports, business forms, web content, press releases, multimedia presentations, your ghostwritten memoirs. These are not things to quicken the pulse of most grown men. But they quicken mine. Have you looked yet at the attached CV? I know, it’s a little nuts—Dartmouth, Columbia, Lehman, Goldman Sachs, ivory towers, limos, deadlines and busted mill-towns. . . But running through this ridiculously eclectic professional life is a constant theme: communications art, and above all, the written word—the lodestone which has guided my achievements in fields normally thought distant from the writer's craft. My creed: language matters, form matters, style matters. They matter even when, or especially when, the reader is oblivious to the manner in which language is operating. I'll confess to being an elitist---an Orwellian, Strunkian efficiency zealot. A poorly written street sign can ruin my day. Yet I am also a pragmatist---for most tasks, pushing any further than "good enough" is waste of time. While I'm in the confessional mood, this too: I'm picky about projects. They need to be fun, and I have fun when 1) there's a good fit between my skills and your needs; 2) you are frighteningly smart and uncompromising in your expectations; 3) the work is challenging and important; and 4) nobody gets machine-gunned at the end. And so. . . Whatcha got?

    Health Research & Compliance

    United States - Last active: 10/02/2014

    I most enjoy working with multidisciplinary teams to design projects, navigate the complex regulatory and administrative landscape governing medical research, and build the systems necessary to support the endeavor. In my work as an independent research consultant, I help startup companies ensure compliance with FDA mHealth, marketing and social media requirements for health products. I also work with researchers to take studies involving human subjects from conception to IRB approval, provide audit support, and develop SOPs to maintain research in compliance with the Common Rule, HIPPA, Medicare National Coverage Determination, Good Clinical Practice Guidelines, and other governing regulations. I draw on my ten years of clinical and translational research experience at the University of Chicago Comprehensive Cancer Center, along with my formal education in law, bioethics and clinical trials management, to ensure the success of the project.
