I am an educator, first and foremost. I enjoy coaching, mentoring, and teaching as ways to engage with young people (and not-so-young people). When I cannot reach students individually, I use my writing and podcasting to spread knowledge to my audiences. Currently, I have a personal development blog that I run through my own website, www.duanerohrbacher.com, and a podcast on iTunes and Stitcher called Reframe with Duane. I am an avid sports writer, having completed hundreds of articles on WriterAccess, and I am a Contributor for FanSided, where I post at least 12 articles a month covering various sports topics. Further, I have a vast amount of writing experience doing resumes, cover letters, and other career-oriented writing through UpWork and with clients one-on-one. Finally, I have written on education, education technology, conflict resolution, law, and self-help extensively through a variety of mediums.
