About - Pangolin Medical Communications, Medical Writing, and Medical Editing

History. Experience. Proven Performance. Reliability. Pangolin offers all of these things and more to those with whom they partner.

Partners in Success


We created Pangolin in June 2014 out of a desire to leverage and combine our scientific knowledge, experience, and broad education with our high-level writing, editorial and content expertise. Though Pangolin was a start-up not so long ago, our story goes way back – to 1990 when we met as high schoolers on summer break. We went on to become life and work partners.

Our home base is in Central Indiana, home of the Indianapolis Colts, corn, basketball, and GenCon.  We have vast experience traveling and always welcome the experience. Some of the fun places we have worked include domestic destinations such as Chicago, New York City, Detroit, Washington DC, San Diego, Los Angeles, Louisville, Nashville, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, and Houston. We especially enjoy global travel and have worked in exotic locations such as Hong Kong, China; Tokyo, Japan; Rome, Italy; Stockholm, Sweden; Santiago, Chile; Buenos Aires, Argentina; São Paulo, Brazil; Panama City, Panama; Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada; Windsor, Ontario, Canada; Istanbul, Turkey; and Taipei, Taiwan.

The founders are huge fans of the Green Bay Packers, dogs, and the beach. Someday we hope to include all of these interests in a little place to live in Door County, Wisconsin.
