When I was in middle school, I attempted to write a novel. Twice. Both times, I made it through three or four handwritten pages before I realized I didn’t really know what I was doing.What I did know is that I really enjoyed the process of putting pen (well, mostlykeyboard) to paper, regardless of the format.And over the course of my writing career, I’ve had the opportunity to try my hand at a lot of different formats.

Before joining Blue Door Consulting, Iwasa technical writer forImproMed, Inc.andserved as both a communications specialist and technical writer atTime Warner Cable. For more than a decade I’ve been a freelance journalist and blogger for publications ranging from the local newspaper to Film Threat magazine. I’m also anaward-winning screenwriter and Kindle bestselling novelist(younger me was thrilled that I finally figured out how to write a novel).

What I love about my work at Blue Door Consulting is that no two clients or projects are ever exactly alike, which means every day I get to string words together on new topics, in new ways. What more could a writer ask for?

Outside of Blue Door Consulting, I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter. All three of us are very musical, so there are a lot of in-car singalongs.
