Overview

I've written both creatively and for business for a number of years, mainly my own businesses, and bring this sales & marketing perspective to my writing. Additionally, I recently completed a 300 page non-fiction book, my own, and also a screenplay.

My experience is probably more varied and unusual than you're used to seeing. My education was physiological chemistry and zoology and I still take an active interest in most sciences.

I write now because I like to, and recently completed a 300 page non-fiction book and a screenplay. I have a great ear for dialogue and know how to present a “selling proposition,” in writing or in a script for video. My business and writing background and experience is as follows; almost all ventures were my own companies or I acted as General Partner:

Business sales/marketing newsletters in securities and private offerings – 10 years, dealing with real estate syndications, oil & gas ventures, aircraft equipment leasing, 40’ shipping container leasing, Section 42 tax credits, real estate development, and numerous other private offerings.

I can make an Excel spreadsheet sing opera and hit the high notes.

Los Angeles Business Channel – eight years – tax and estate planning, plus investments.

30 minute infomercial on skin care – produced, wrote, and appeared in.

Commercial – produced, wrote, and appeared in.

Business video – oil & gas, ditto.

Reg. D Private Offering Memorandums – oil & gas, Marshal Islands-Japan fishing venture.

Due Diligence: reviewed and analyzed hundreds of offering memorandums over the years in a wide variety of investments.

Started an import company and spent seven years traveling Southeast Asia importing high-end designer furniture by 40 foot ocean...
