I was born at an early age. As a baby, I was rocketed to Earth in the hopes I would gain powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal man. So far, not so good.

Most days I'm a professional copywriter, author, essayist, husband, father, and scrambled eggs maker. I'm on a strict diet and only drink water, cheap coffee, and raspberry vodka. I will totally eat all of your crab rangoon, go shoe shopping with you, and never say you look fat in that dress.

I encourage you to subscribe to my newsletter, The Weekly Click. Every Tuesday you’ll get a new haiku or six word story, interesting links, and a digest of my favorite stories delivered straight to your inbox.

A few years ago, I wrote a children's book inspired by a bedtime story I used to tell my daughter, called Goodnight Princess. It's fun. Grab a copy for your favorite storyteller.

In my diverse and varied career, I've excelled at being a Yellow Pages sales representative, national magazine editor and writer, ad agency hack, speech teacher, web content writer and designer, and burger flipper. I have more than 25 years of marketing and promotional experience including managing events, writing advertising copy, creating websites, and showing college kids how to speak in front of an audience.

My home is in Savoy, Illinois where I live with my amazing and talented wife and three incredible girls, marvel at my collection of original sketches, cheer on the St. Louis Cardinals, root for University of Illinois athletics, and continue to look for the next big adventure.
