I’ve done everything from PR to ghostwriting books. The topics I’ve covered range from Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to male enhancement supplements, and quit-smoking advice to pee-wee football. Now I cover financial issues including debt recovery, fraud, and current credit card topics. When I’m away from a keyboard I enjoy craft beer and fishing — and once enjoyed a cold Sweet Water IPA after catching a sailfish.
