Service Description

15 years of writing experience for the following publishers: Rodale Press, The Doylestown Intelligencer, The Scranton Times-Tribune, Eastern PA Business Journal, Lehigh Valley Style, Pennsylvania Athlete, The Champion Sports Paper, academic journals and too many websites to list.

I've written for companies large and small (press releases, internal communications and newsletters), newspapers, magazines, non-profits, literary magazines, academic journals, business journals and private individuals.

I've interviewed famous people and made them feel normal and interviewed normal people and made them feel famous.

Among the topics I've written about: Forex Trading, Raw Food, Moving/Relocation, Travel, Insurance, Finance, Film, Music, History, Politics, Energy, the Environment, Legal Issues and every major sport except for NASCAR (and I don't expect that to change any time soon).

7 Years business experience working in credit, marketing, health care, pharmaceuticals, finance and insurance.

5 years teaching English, Journalism and Media Studies to grades 9-12.

8 years coaching high school boys' basketball (.740 winning percentage).


As you can see, I've been busy. References and a more detailed resume are available upon request.

If you need something written, regardless of the size, regardless of the audience, regardless of the venue, then we should talk.

Furthermore, every letter of every word you receive from me will be written by me and me only. I don't farm any work...
