I’m a former copywriter who’s thrilled to be writing precisely what I want to write without the bother of kick-off meetings, brainstorming sessions, client presentations, good and bad revisions. Repeat.
I’m schooled in the arts of journalism at the University of North Texas, where I hooped my way through to a master’s with an advertising concentration and a radio/TV/film minor. My undergrad is in English, of course, with a photography minor.
Before, during and after my scholastic education, I received priceless life and work experience that included coveted positions as landscaper, busboy, dishwasher, miniature golf groundskeeper, car audio installer, electronics technician during a six-year stint in the Navy, copy editor, feature writer, columnist, pool keeper, cabana boy, ditch digger, assistant handy man, aerial photographer, technical writer, Zamboni driver, IT guy and office manager.
Most meaningful position
Though my most fulfilling vocation is as a writer, I find the most joy as a Christian.
What I most want to hear when this life is done is God’s voice saying to me, “Well done, my son.” In the meantime, I struggle with my flesh, and remember that God loves me and has adopted me into his family, and wants me to glorify him by loving and serving others instead of myself. I’m trying to love others unconditionally, show more humility and the love of Christ through the ability he gives me to do what I cannot do in my own strength.
