Giles has successfully produced articles for slick publications such as Smithsonian Air & Space magazine (six so far), trade publications such as Pit & Quarry, Compact Equipment, and Municipal Sewer & Water magazines, online content ranging from academic tutoring columns to travel site pieces to home repair blogs, and document content for a private equity investment firm. In addition, he is producing fiction, including a published middle grade reader e-book (not self-published), a mystery set in the southwest United States, and a screenplay (being shopped around) celebrating an early period of U.S. aviation history. In short, he has created original writing using a full range of voices for a broad spectrum of clients.

Specialties

Heavy equipment and construction subjects. Historical subjects. Columns. Fiction.

Interests

He enjoys writing and immerses himself in whatever subject is assigned, so his interests are as wide-ranging as his opportunities to explore them.

Education

University of Kansas, William Allen White School of Journalism

Journalism school was less interesting than actually practicing the craft so schooling was truncated and the profession entered without completion of a degree.

Construction

103 Projects Completed

Construction projects, professionals, equipment and dealers have all been profiled over the last dozen years of working with print and online industry publications. Subjects have ranged from Iraqi heavy contractors to Oklahoma frackers to post-9/11 demolition in New York City to Canadian ground-penetrating radar work.

Business

50 Projects Completed

Over four years, writing and editing the language of a private investment entrepreneur's financial products ranged from promoting casinos, ad agencies and a tea company in Macau to tutoring students in an academic writing company in Taiwan and selling investors on aquatic farms in an emerging Myanmar.

Blog Post

44 Projects Completed

Blog posts and other online content have been wide-ranging during the last decade with posts ranging from a motorcycle museum and tourist hotel reviews to DIY home and property repairs to cultural attractions in Asian countries to political observations for a Florida insurance company.

Book

2 Projects Completed

An author in Florida needed content edited, a former air traffic controller in California needed a book ghostwritten (and a movie script created), and a middle-grades historical novel about an orphan train child begged to be written. All the projects were accomplished.
