Overview

I help businesses tell their story. I specialize in financial topics because my 16 years of experience as a financial advisor helps me take complex, difficult concepts and explain them plainly to any audience.

I'll dream up your blog, put a shiny finish on your article, expand your company brochure, write your speech, or create your next press release. My range covers crazy witty to cold and analytical. Your project, your voice and my expertise combine for awesome results.

Service Description

My addiction to writing began when I wrote a book in eighth grade called "The Adventures of Matt Stewart." It was absolute rubbish, but hey, that was eighth grade! Who knew that book would land me here: a writer for many years who's written and delivered speeches for large clients such as Chrysler, Microsoft, IBM, HP, Nordstrom, and many others.

Analytical writing helped me build financial plans and strategies during 16 years as a retail financial planner and company spokesman. I developed marketing pieces, including web copy, brochures, fliers, and workbooks. From this experience I understand how much well written prose can effectively brand a company. Poorly written documents lose jobs.

I wrote news segments for WXYZ - ABC television for nine years.

As the head of marketing for our small financial planning company I was responsible for writing pieces that grabbed prospects and created a dialogue with potential customers. I've written:

SEO articles
key word articles
blogs
manuals
bios
public relations pieces
scripts
fliers
brochures.

I am profiled in "10 Simple Secrets of the World's Greatest Business Communicators" by Carmine Gallo.
