Mad writing skills? I have them. During my 10-year career, I’ve worked as a newspaper reporter, opinion columnist, travel blogger, technical writer, and marketing copywriter…and, just for fun, as a scribbler of short science fiction stories and full-length sci-fi and historical fiction novels.
I graduated from North Dakota State University in December 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism, Broadcasting, and Mass Communication Technologies. (Quite the mouthful, I know…the words ran off the edge of the diploma.) I minored in English, too. I’m also a classically trained bartender and a private pilot. My hobbies are traveling, keeping a weekly diary, mixing delicious drinks, smoking pipes and cigars, flying small airplanes, reading classical literature (and tons of sci-fi, of course), watching Akira Kurosawa films, travel blogging (brand-new blog launching soon), and writing historical and science fiction. My not-so-secret addictions are Blue Diamond almonds, anime, and Ray Harryhausen films.
Most of my professional experience is in technical writing and marketing copywriting, both of which I excel at doing. But my true medium is educational writing. Whether you need a 200-word blurb written about the Napoleonic Wars or a 1,000-word how-to guide to getting a pilot’s license or mixing the perfect Bahama Mama, I’m your man. I’m professional, timely, diligent, respectful, amicable, and deadline-oriented. When I take you on as a client, no job’s too small (or too large), no details are overlooked, and no copy is left unpolished.
