I am a writer as well as a photographer. Currently I'm writing narratives for the app HearHear, while also working on two wildlife conservation projects.

I have been writing for more than three decades for a wide variety of publications and clients. In an earlier life, I was a magazine editor. Most of my work back then was related to water sports and I still work with a client from that segment of the sports industry, but I have written everything from feature articles to catalog copy to search advertising ads to executive blogs.

In recent years I have published locally in our weekly town newspaper, Skagit Valley tourism promotions and the Skagit Farm to Pint brewers' association. I am also able to provide photos to accompany my stories. 

Below are a few links to recent stories.

I also write much of the copy used by Centurion & Supreme Ski Boats, maintaining a client relationship I have had with people I have known for thirty plus years. 

I can write in various voices, from casual to authoritative. I am most interested in projects that tell good stories and I don't do technical writing. You can also check out my blog to see more samples.

My interests are wide ranging - from regional history, local culture to conservation and nature. 

Although I have lived on the west coast for most of my adult life, I grew up in the deep South and still have ties there. In 2019 I was invited to write a personal essay as part of a larger project about growing up during a challenging time in the South. This is my personal essay about that experience:

If I sound like the kind of writer you're seeking, drop me a note. I'd love to hear your story.
