Wordsmith with a Clause
Copywriter, news reporter, marketer, freelancer, software documentation guru, buzzword imagineer, customer advocate, photographer, bartender, and more! I've experienced life and writing through several unique lenses, now I want to help make your written communication shine on my own terms. You'll get quality, dedication, and passion because I refuse to work for a cause I don't believe in. Get ahold of me about your project and let's take a trip down the rabbit hole.
Who am I?
They say great things have humble beginnings. I keep this perspective in mind in regard to my professional life, and I try to approach life first and foremost as a human from Indiana trying to make the world a friendlier, more connected, and equal place to exist. I gravitate towards interesting causes, technology, and companies that unite us as fellow humans to strive to be better and to treat each other with more respect.
I’ve found myself working for several institutions and industry-leading businesses since earning my degrees from Indiana University, including Austin Pets Alive, Dropbox, Under Armour, Boyden & Youngblutt, Cyclone Social, and more. Industries and ideas that continue to fascinate me include SaaS cloud technologies, quantified-self and health improvement, healthcare reform, transforming journalism for the public benefit, education reform, civil rights, and animal welfare.
“I want to be an honest man and a good writer.”
Those words come from James Baldwin and are a guiding philosophy in accomplishing my goals. I pride myself on being a glass half-full and openminded fellow who is pleasant to work with. I was blessed (and cursed) with a curious mind that is drawn to innovation, travel, and the future. I’m an enthusiastic runner and cyclist just shy of “fitness buff” stature. On my own time I can be found attempting to improve my writing craft, meddling in the arts, wrapping my brain around building a minimalist tiny house, and various projects du jour. When not toiling away on these projects, I spend my time enjoying the company of friends on various adventures, and trying to be a dedicated dog dad to one of the best pups in the world.
Now that you know a little bit about this guy, tell me about yourself and your project, and...
let's get to work.
