Digital Strategy +
Exceptional Storytelling =
Awesome Marketing


View Our Services


I’m Lynn, founder and chief strategist at LAD. I approach marketing and business communications differently than other marketers. My first love was journalism and so I look for details that set a brand, a product, or a leader apart, and I use those details to create marketing hooks that reel in customers and motivate them to click, call, or seal the deal.

I spent 10 years learning how to tell amazing stories at the Baltimore Sun, a newspaper made famous by its reputation for hard-hitting and reliable journalism, as well as David Simon’s gritty HBO series The Wire, which included a fictional version of the newspaper and its newsroom.

Since I left journalism, I have learned a lot about marketing and communications, including the use of social media and digital tools to promote brand awareness, and I have worked in corporate, non-profit, and higher education environments in Washington, Baltimore, London, Paris, Brussels, and more recently, the beautiful Midwest.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope to meet you soon.
