Bio

I love words.

For more than 20 years, I’ve employed them to create clarity in complex situations, to paint images in readers’ minds and to evoke emotional responses from audiences. Along the way, I’ve earned the following words that describe me.

  • Award-winning writer.
  • Published author.
  • Creative communicator.
  • Strategic storyteller.

Personal

  • I live in suburban Minneapolis/St. Paul with my wife Kelly and our three children — Shanley, Finnegan and Maeve.
  • I enjoy running, drumming and sometimes drumming while running.
  • My band is The Backyard Band. Great vocals. I don’t sing much.
  • Kelly and I founded and produce an annual musical variety show for our church called The Night Club. It rocks. Not churchy at all.

The work speaks
for itself?

Not always.

Before you partner with creative talent, sometimes a little background is helpful.
