This is Me
I became interested in writing and storytelling my junior year of high school, when I took a creative writing class that spanned everything from short stories, non-fiction and poetry. After graduating with a degree in Journalism from the University of Wisconsin (1987), I’ve been writing my entire career. Starting as a reporter for my hometown newspaper, The Watertown Daily Times, in Watertown, WI, my words, messages and stories have spanned a number of disciplines, from news, to public relations, advertising, and corporate and commercial video productions.
Recently, I’ve begun writing for myself, telling my stories to anyone who wants to read or hear them. Most of my essays address life experiences, memories and observations.
I believe we all have stories, and those stories are interesting, funny, poignant, moving and sometimes incredible. And we all owe it to ourselves to document those stories. I’m living proof of that; an ordinary, Midwestern guy who decided one day to start telling his stories, writing for an audience of one (me), and hoping others would join in on the fun.
