In the area of traditional media he is an award-winning arts and entertainment reviewer and opinion writer for newspapers, a television news copywriter, and a writer of successful infomercial copy selling products on television, among other things.
As a successful business owner of 35 years he has created literally hundreds of pages of promotional copy for brochures, employee manuals, safety programs, PowerPoint presentations, business and marketing plans, industry presentations and nearly any other business-related copy task one can think of.
He also writes for his own interests in personal growth, relationship work, interpersonal communication and spiritual subjects. He can tailor his work to any audience and make it reach out and whisper in the reader's ear: "Listen up. This is the way it is and it's something you should know." .

Mike had a long and jumbled track to a Bachelor's degree, at four different schools over a 10-year period. Working and college didn't overlap much. One had to "hand off" to the other - in sequence. The benefit was a broad education that was completed only after he was managing a small television station in Southern California. A business man/student.

Honors and Awards
Award winner in categores of Opinion and Feature Writing Mike was recognized by the Colorado Press Association for his writing in the Durango Herald (Feature Writing Category) and the Pine River Times (Opinion category).

Projects by Industry

Mike has created brochures for three different companies who specialize in a new excavation technology. He also has written business plans, marketing plans, SEO copy for company websites and many other written-word applications.


Mike wrote a weekly political opinion column in a local newspaper in Colorado for several years, and is a regular reader and contributor to political aggregator websites and blogs.


Mike reviewed for publication many books by Colorado authors over a period of several years. Outdoor books, history books, environmental books, travel books, all kinds. Some good, some amateurish, all written to the best of someone's ability. A great experience and a rewarding one when the author said, "You know, I think you captured what I was trying to say better than any reviewer I have read."

Projects by Asset Type

Mike published weekly (or more often) in local newspapers for years. He covered local events, opinion, previews and/or reviews of arts events, and political commentary.

News Story

Mike produced weekly feature stories for a local newspaper. He was awarded a Colorado Publisher's Association prize for feature writing.

Technical Article

Mike created articles for construction industry publications, particularly in the excavation area. He typically has focused on bringing his lengthy experience to issues that plague newcomers to the industry, such as profitability, productivity and safety concerns. Some articles have also provided the basis for subsequent live presentations at trade shows and other corporate training events.

Projects By Expertise
Research Writer

Mike has written essays, opinion, news, criticism, humor, you name it. And lots of it.


This is another example of Expertise #2 above.

Projects by Writing Style

Many of Mike's opinion, review or feature pieces include humor to make the point. He has written probably 25 pieces that would qualify for this style of writing, but they tend to be directed at newspaper readers instead of a specific audience interested in a specific subject. Again, a generalist - even in the area of humor.

Projects by Company Size
Small Business

As president of several small (fewer than 100 employees) companies, Mike wrote copy for articles, infomercial scripts, web content, and many other applications. Much of the copy was very specific to industry processes and/or "insider" tips and tricks, but were widely disseminated.
