Although Art has written for various industries, most of his work has been in the areas of medical facilities (hospitals and orthopedic medicine), outdoor and recreation (including RVs) and manufacturing (trucks, chassis and all manner of widgets).
As a fitness and outdoors nut, Art enjoys working out (three times a week), scuba diving and boating.

Art has developed a gamut of materials for healthcare organizations. His work includes web sites, brochures, TV commercials, newspaper ads, magazine articles, publications, direct mail, patient handbooks, billboards and trade show displays. Clients include Zimmer (joint replacement technologies), OSMC (orthopedic medical practice), Beacon Health System/Memorial Hospital (South Bend, IN) and Champion Manufacturing (quality healthcare seating products).
Faced with the mission of convincing people to spend their hard-earned dollars to purchase vehicles, appliances and related products for recreational purposes, Art has generated a host of marketing materials for the outdoor/recreation industry. Brands include Coachmen Industries and Haulmark Motor Coach (motorized and towable RVs); Haulmark (race car, snowmobile, ATV and dirt bike trailers); Exiss and Sooner (horse trailers) as well as ASA Electronics and Dometic (appliances and accessories for boats and RVs).
Art writes blogs for Starr Austen & Miller, LLP, a securities law firm located in Logansport, IN. Most of the blogs are rewrites of articles from financial and legal papers or web sites. Art revamps the stories to make the articles meaningful to 'regular' investors. This means eliminating as much legal speak as possible, and making the articles more friendly and conversational. He ends the articles with a tie-in to services offered by the law firm.
Art also writes a blog for Grabill Cabinets, a custom cabinetmaking company in northeastern Indiana. The blogs comprise edited versions of articles found on a custom cabinetmaking website. Each post includes links to the full-length article and a recommendation of Grabill custom cabinets.
