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 the director of the Fanning Center for Business Communication and 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 10-year-old daughter who keeps us on our toes constantly.
