Creative Writer | Editor | Content Strategist | Freelance Writer

About Me

Dave is an experienced copywriter, scriptwriter, blogger, editor, storyteller, and messaging guru. He has worked for large retailers, small businesses, non-profit organizations, and a guy in his neighborhood who always needs help with his resume. 

Dave holds a PhD from the University of Cincinnati and has taught writing at Xavier University, Northern Kentucky University, and BYU. In college, he played for the men's basketball team. His teammates called him "Nails" because he was so dang tough. He was a great defender, a tenacious rebounder, and an all-around class-act. Like the NBA Hall of Famer Karl Malone, Dave always spoke about himself to reporters in the third person and is best known for the quote, "Dave Nielsen gonna do what Dave Nielsen gonna do." 

Dave's book, Unfinished Figures, was awarded the Blue Lynx Prize for Poetry. Currently, Dave creates content for the website FamilySearch.org. He is always interested in new writing projects.
