Crafting persuasive prose and achieving desired results

This Canadian expat left winter behind and escaped to the Philippines. After a lifetime in North American Television and Feature Film production, from artist to executive producer, the desire to write compelled me to put my experience into practice. 1 movie script, 1 BBC TV pilot script, a 1930's bio in development, countless articles and more, and now as they say, 'The rest is history.' But there are a lot more genres of the craft I have mastered over time.

As a sailor, world traveler (almost) photographer, writer, guitar player, lover of life and all things beautiful, I have been blessed with an adventurous life journey.

One of my most memorable moments was being piloted in a stressed 9G bi-plane by a 74-year-old WWII ace performing aerobatics. Talk of your extream midway theme park ride. However, after flying upside down in an open cockpit and seeing the earth on top of the sky, the best part of the flight was the landing. My pilot Zebulon Monroe approached the grass landing strip sideways just clearing the tops of trees and at about 50 feet above the ground, kick the rudder to land straight on. The people in the flying club would always watch and applaud his skill. Wow! What an adventure. But then that's what life is supposed to be all about. BTW Zebulon is in the Canadian Aviation Hall of Fame.

The characters I have met over my lifetime from a Detroit novitiate priest, a WWII army map maker stationed in Japan, a Texas blacksmith, even Frank Sinatra, and Russel Crowe help fill out my life story.

I produced and directed over 250 retail ads for a US retailer, spent most of my adult life working in Film and television with 2 years at WGBH TV in Boston as the senior lighting designer. At WGBH, some of our shows won Emmy's.

I have a passion for using the written word to entertain, inform and motivate readers.
I craft impact content published both on line and in print.

A current project is a true life bio that has Tolstoy's nephew as the narrator.

Work Terms

I prefer to work on a per job basis with a fixed price. As a writer, sometimes I can craft 5 pages in 2 hours on a good day, and other times 2 pages in 5 hours. From my journalistic days, I like to work to deadlines. I prefer to have my clients involved throughout the communication process and welcome their participation.

I am open to discussion regarding the above.
