Work experience

Owner

Self-employed

My business clients have included Costco, American Express, Alaska Airlines, Labor Ready, ChemPoint, Milliman. Publications include Forbes, Entrepreneur, Delta Sky, Alaska Beyond, Horizon Air, Seattle Magazine, Seattle Business, the Seattle Times. Not bad for a college dropout, hm? If you're looking for a writer with street smarts, I'm it.

Prior to this freelance stint, I was a staff journalist for 12 years, for the Puget Sound Business Journal in Seattle, and home-improvement trade publication National Home Center News. I've interviewed Bezos, Brotman, Nordstrom, Cuban, and many more.

My blog, Make a Living Writing, has 1000 posts and is read by close to 1 million viewers a year. I have over 25,000 blog subscribers and 18,000 Twitter followers. If you need to develop content that builds an audience...I know a few tricks. ;-)
