About Test

An “About” testpage for a guy who doesn't like talking about himself

A Brief Sketch

Writing is the second most important part of my job. Companies in just about every industry look to me for ideas that increase sales, leads and awareness. I’ve been doing that for over 20 years. And although I work with many types of organizations, I focus on rejuvenating established brands and priming start-ups for success.

With my experience, I'll immediately recognize your objectives. You won't need to do much explaining, which means we can complete the project with maximum smiles and minimal hassle.

My home office is a block away from the mighty Pacific Ocean. When I’m not spending time with my girlfriend, I’m usually spending too much money on records.






Call me at 415.505.7702 to discuss how we could work together. Hey, call me anyway – the writing life can get lonely.
