The Basics

I was born on a stormy spring Friday night in Boise, Idaho.

My magic is in my smile.

My magic is in my smile.

I don’t want to bore you with the minutia of my life, even though it does read like a kick-ass adventure/thriller novel. In short, I moved to the Chicago area my sophomore year in high school, joined the US Navy after graduating, got married, saw the world aboard the USS Peleliu (LHA-5), left the Navy, worked a series of menial jobs, went to college, earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English literature and a minor in philosophy, and started my writing career. And now my wife and I have a beautiful, cute, awesome son.

Currently, I’m a writer living in the Chicago suburbs. I also work as a part-time superhero.

Writing Services

As a writer, my goal is to write web content that converts visitors into customers, keeps visitors loyal to you, and make it easy for people to find your website. Before I even write one word I research your industry so I feel comfortable writing about it. I’m experienced writing content for such industries as:

  • Plumbing/Electrical
  • Landscaping
  • Real Estate
  • Travel
  • Internet Marketing
  • Online Services
  • Blogging

If you’re interested in my writing talents, check out my Services Page for more information.

Other Writing

I started blogging in December 2006 on a little blog called Brad’s Reader. It focused on literature, writing, self-publishing and technology. The blog continued until about 2011 when I decided I could no longer maintain it. I also write a lot of fiction, which I will publish eventually.
