“Scott did an excellent job with copy for my direct mail client. He gave me 4 choices of copy – each better than the last! His copy is as good or better than any copywriter I’ve worked with at large advertising agencies. I would highly recommend Scott – hire him while you can – he is going to be very busy.”
Here’s where you’ll find all things related to all the different hats I wear, from magazine journalist and freelance business copywriter to fiction writer and voice actor. If that sounds like a lot, you’re right! I stay pretty busy, but never too busy to talk to potential clients about how I can help them with my particular set of storytelling skills – both in print or by voice – or to engage with readers of my fiction. Feel free to poke around, click wherever you like and find out more about what I do and why I do it.
What does nearly 30 years as a professional journalist get you? The chops to tell nearly any story for a wide variety of publications, including nationally recognized newspapers and magazines.

I write fun, fantastic fiction that’s described as the sort of thing that might result if “Tom Robbins, Christopher Moore, William Gibson and Robert Heinlein got together one night, had a few beers, started joking around and decided to collaborate on a book.” My first novel, Immaculate Deception, was published by Codorus Press in 2010. I’m working on the next novel, the first of a mystery/suspense/paranormal comedy series, called Mystery White Boy, featuring the unusual adventures of small-town newspaper reporter Bond DeLoach.
“Scott has been an incredible addition to our creative team. His articles are extensively researched and combine technical terminology, while delivering the message in an easy-to-understand language. We were able to increase our footprint of relevant, educational articles on many topic that help our clients understand what we do, or how to do what they do better. We also doubled our readership and brand exposure on social media and search engines, which in turn helped us receive and win more sales. I’d recommend Scott to anyone who needs to work with a professional who will listen, learn and apply himself to their ‘element.’” –
“Scott loves stories. You can’t manufacture that passion. His enthusiasm enables him to spot narratives others miss. His excitement fosters genuine connection with his subjects. And his energy helps him craft stories that move readers — to action, to similar passion. If you’re having trouble finding the enthusiasm in your enterprise or connecting with customers, Scott’s your guy. He’ll unearth the treasures: Stories that build your brand with passion.”
