About Me

Ever since I got my first junior copywriting job in 2013, I've had a passion for writing. As the son of two financial advisors, I've been learning about money since I had an allowance (I grew up on budgets and compound interest lectures), and now I write SEO content and website copy for clients as big as Dave Ramsey and as small as your local tax firm. 

I’m a firm believer in storybranding, making your customers the hero of your brand story. Whatever I write will help your audience identify with the kind of future you want them to buy into, whether that’s better health insurance or using clean energy solutions. 

My entire life has revolved around words and figuring out what makes the best stories work. When I'm not writing for a living, I'm writing fiction for fun, reading the latest novels, or gathering experience (traveling, cooking, playing with my cats) to fashion into a story later. My wife and I like to garden and imagine new solutions to energy problems (we're such nerds).
