I’ve been one for almost 30 years. Most of that time I freelanced. For most of that time, I wrote commercial marketing work (ad campaigns, direct response, websites, brochures, email, etc.).
Along the way, I wrote some unbylined editorial work for clients. And the odd bit of bylined journalism for myself.
I liked it. So did the editors involved. (No surprise — my background is in journalism.)
Now I have two young daughters. As far as the future is concerned, I’ve got skin in the game.
So these days, I’m writing less marketing copy. But more editorial work, including a few bylined pieces.
I’m also writing op-eds, articles, position statements, blog posts and others for special clients (mostly nonprofits).
Areas of particular expertise include technology, free/open source software (FOSS), the environment, California water issues, free speech/First Amendment, criminal justice reform, fly fishing and others.
