nDash Writer Profile for Marshall Bowden


About Me

I’m a writer, first and foremost. I have always been writing–there’s no job I’ve had in the past for which I was not producing some written communication for use internally or externally.

I have worked for a number years as a veterinary technician and in the field of animal rescue, and I have a strong background in veterinary and companion animal topics. Prior to that I worked for a large distributor of medical and professional books where I wrote marketing copy and managed inventory, earning my MBA at DePaul University while working full time.

I wrote for About.com as Classic Jazz Guide and then created the successful website Jazzitude, which ran from 2001-2008. My music writing is an extension of my earlier music education, when I played piano and saxophone in bands and studied at Boston’s Berklee College of Music.

I’ve studied yoga for the past several years and have had the opportunity to talk to yoga teachers and studio owners about what is most needed in terms of marketing their offerings. Most of the marketing tools and techniques that I discuss for yoga teachers are applicable to others working in the health/fitness/wellness community, including physical therapists, acupuncturists massage therapists, pilates instructors, personal trainers, and nutritionists.

Why I’m the writer for you

What you’re getting with me is a writer who has experience with content creation for a number of topics, loves research and is passionate about writing and using words to create a better experience for brands and their customers.
