As a successful author and freelance writer from Pittsburgh, I’ve written more than 3,000 articles in many magazines, from trade journals to general interest publications to websites. I also have five years of reporting experience for a major daily newspaper.
As a social media coach and a social media ghostwriter, I can show you how to write compelling headlines and intriguing posts to better engage with your followers. I can also teach you the basics of setting up and maintaining a Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn account through one-on-one training. My tips and techniques helped one client accumulate 5,000+ social media connections in less than a year. Read my article on how a ghostwriter can help you if you don’t have time to do it yourself.
As a copywriter, I have written successful blog posts, newsletters, brochures, website content and other marketing collateral. I write good, crisp copy that will help you sell your products or service to your customers. My experience includes working with two award-winning interactive web design agencies where I honed my copywriting skills.
My versatile writing background led to a successful public relations career where I developed an excellent working relationship with the media. My media pitches have generated over 500 placements for small businesses and non-profit organizations.
I’m dedicated to serving my community with the same commitment to excellence that I apply to my writing services. I’m a former member of the Pittsburgh Technology Council and Pittsburgh Urban Magnet Project. I am also one of the original co-founders of the Pittsburgh Sports League.
I’m married to a wickedly smart and wonderful woman, Dr. Amanda McKendree, who is currently a professor of management for the Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame. We’re also the proud parents of a beautiful and funny 4-year-old daughter who keeps us on our toes constantly.
