Where to begin about Lisa? She’s a superb writer. And director. And producer. And a genuinely wonderful person. She writes. She makes movies. She wins awards.

I trained her when she started at Microsoft Advertising, but learned more from her than I think she did from me. I tried to teach her how to “write Microsoft.” She showed me why it’s important not to.

Lisa always finds the human connection in whatever she’s writing about and finds a way to make the reader care. No small feat in an age of endless tweets and media overload. I recommend you hire Lisa. You won’t be disappointed.
