As a transcultural music ensemble delivering ancient and modern koto music on traditional instruments, it’s really no surprise that Oregon Koto-Kai would be ready to grow as an organization.
I’ve been involved in nonprofit work since 2011, writing everything from brochures and email campaigns, to canvass raps and case studies. My specialty lies in channeling and expressing the vital urgency and inestimable value of your organization’s work.
And you know what?
I love a good cause. So let’s get started!
Oregon Koto-Kai – Indiegogo Campaign
“Restring 29 Traditional Japanese Instruments”
The trouble with kotos is that you can’t just restring ’em like you would a guitar or a violin or what have you. You actually have to get a koto expert to sit down with the six-foot long thing and battle it out for the better part of an hour.
P:EAR – CASE STUDY
“Homeless Youth Discovers the Power of Positive Relationships”
“Peter’s writing is as heart-felt as it is clear in vision. He was able to capture the core qualities of p:ear in ways that surprised me.”

Bark – Editing, Layout, and Design
“ACTION ALERT: Spotted owl habitat under fire!”
My role was to edit this piece and get it out to Bark’s list ASAP in order to stop a proposed logging operation that was threatening Northern Spotted Owl habitat on Mt. Hood.
BARK – ARTICLE
“Why You Should Be Worrying About Roads”
“Whenever it rains, water washes over every inch of road in the forest. And as each drop heads downhill toward the waterways that line our forest valleys, they carry with them little souvenirs from their roadtrips.”
Bark – Editing, Layout, and Signup Page
“Tell the Forest Service to Get Rid of Crumbling Old Logging Roads!”
It was up to me to edit this piece, and prepare a signup page for folks who were interested in Bark’s then-new campaign to remove old logging roads from Mt. Hood National Forest.
