So, what do I do exactly?
A lot. Ask me about:
- Personal histories and narratives: I use primary and secondary sources, including extensive in-person interviews and archival materials, to create in-depth personal, family, and corporate histories. Available with or without attribution.
- Travel writing: I compose practical, in-depth destination guides and logistical primers for frugal travelers. I typically create and lay out my own multimedia content, including original photos and videos.
- Feature writing: I’ve written more glossy magazine and digital journalism features than I can count. My wheelhouses are small business, personal finance, politics, and travel, but I’m pretty versatile. (My portfolio showcases my range pretty well.) I respond promptly to pitch requests.
- Longform explainers: This is where it really pays to sweat the details. My explainers and how-to procedurals are painstakingly researched and concisely communicated. If you want your readers to understand what you’re talking about, talk to me first. Multimedia and optimization optional; available with or without attribution.
- White papers and case studies: No topic is too technical. I don’t have the resources to do raw data analysis, but I’ll happily dive deep into the source material and elaborate as fully as necessary on the conclusions you’d like to present. Multimedia and optimization optional; available with or without attribution.
- Power pages: If you don’t know what these are, start here. (TL;DR: Power pages establish credibility, boost visibility, and demonstrate authority like nothing else.) I handle the whole shebang, including multimedia elements and optimization. Available with or without attribution.
- Ghostwriting and ghost editing: I ghostwrite nonfiction articles and book-length works with subject matter experts; memoirs and personal histories (see above) with regular and extraordinary people; and rewrite, reorganize, and finesse existing manuscripts at any stage of completion.
- Custom short-form content: Whether it’s a one-off blog post that you just don’t have time to put together yourself or a series of edited Q&As that require an expert hand at the till, I can probably help. (You won’t know for sure until you ask.) Available with or without attribution.
- Scripts: I develop original and adapted scripts for podcasts and video explainers. If you’re interested in adapting a previously published work to which I own full rights, please get in touch!
- Strategy and positioning: If your comms strategy needs serious work, I’m not the person for the job, but I know plenty of folks who are. Drop me a line and we’ll go from there.
I’m a writer first, but…
I’m available for media interviews on:
- All things self-employment – from what it takes to take the plunge and go solo, to the day-to-day minutiae of independent practice, to the lifestyle implications of being your own boss
- Location-independent work – the good, the bad, and the ugly of working from anywhere at any time
- Travel writing – the unglamorous logistics behind aspirational (and not-so-aspirational) travelogues
- Ghostwriting – the theory, the science, the art, and the dust behind the curtain
- Personal finance journalism – what really matters to consumers
- Business journalism – what really matters to small business owners
- Anything related to my own published work – if I’ve written about it, I’m available to be interviewed about it
