Mike likes to borrow Mark Twain’s description of his early career, saying he too began as a reporter and worked his way down to editor. Over three decades he continued his slide, becoming an ad copywriter, creative director, public relations manager, direct mail fundraiser and even a freelancer! Since launching his own editorial services business in 2006, Mike has created a variety of materials for both commercial and nonprofit clients and has had articles on topics as various as history, travel and business appear in a range of local, regional and national publications. Although his work has earned numerous awards, Mike’s daily writing partner — a red, longhaired dachshund named Daphne — remains singularly unimpressed. Connect with Mike on LinkedIn.
