Service Description

Michael Kerr began his professional life as an entrepreneur, successfully building and managing various businesses from a direct marketing software business to a high-end art gallery. In 2006, he returned to Southern Oregon University where he graduated Summa Cum Laude with a BA in English/Writing. While there, he won several awards including the Outstanding Graduating Senior in Writing and the Herman Schmeling Award for Expository Writing.

His creative work has been nominated for inclusion in the Best Creative Nonfiction Vol. 3 from W.W. Norton while his professional work appears frequently in various publications including books, newspapers, magazines, and websites. Until November 2010, he co-owned a successful art gallery where his press releases were frequently picked up in the local media. Due in large part to the positive press the gallery generated, it was featured in Sunset Magazine in the summer of 2010.

As a successful businessperson, he knows the importance of a strong work ethic and the ability to meet deadlines. With extensive academic, business, marketing, technical writing, and research abilities, Michael Kerr has the knowledge and skills necessary to help your business succeed.
