Professional Experience

I'm experienced at making media brands better. If you need a writer who can make excellent, concise prose out of complex subject matter, I'm him. If you need someone as comfortable in front of the camera as they are working the phones to land a story, that's me. If you need someone experienced at conceptualizing stories, editorial packages, web strategy, we should talk. In my career, I've done all those things, and done them well. I'm interesting in knowing what I can do for you.
