Leo began as a journalist - first on his college paper while sending freelance pieces elsewhere, then as the assistant editor of a citywide 'alternative' publication. Aged 22 he started his own local paper (covering a two-zipcode area of about 90,000 people) and ran it successfully for two and a quarter years.
From there he became a marketer and copywriter, re-applying the skills he'd learned in journalism (and writing many of the ads that appeared in his paper) for a series of startups in the Boston area.
Since 2007 he's been working freelance, primarily for agencies and startups. He's also an editor of fiction and non-fiction, and has published three science-fiction novels.
Leo's written just about everything at one point or another, but what he really prefers (and is definitely best at) is solid content-marketing material. White papers, blog posts, brand journalism - substantive, often longer-form, copy.
Champion's hobbies include reading, documentaries, fiction and long-distance running.
His reading tastes are pretty broad - fiction and non-fiction, the non-fiction consisting of books from all over the spectrum but probably more history than anything else. Likewise, his taste in film leans toward serious documentaries about whatever... new information is *inherently* interesting.
Writing novels began as pure recreation, but that changed when the first one sold. He currently has three in print, a fourth in the process of publication, a fifth being written and a couple more in the planning/research stages.
Other hobbies include long-distance running (plan is to someday run the Boston Marathon), live theater and rooting for the Red Sox.
