For decades, I focused on growing my career as a writer (my very first stint was writing comedy for a college radio show with my friend Tim Allen). After graduation, I bounced around at different jobs across the country – Michigan, Texas, Boston – having a great run writing for high-tech companies. But on my 50th birthday, I marched into my boss’s office at Microsoft and told him “I’m quitting to become a magician.” Because even though my job as game writer for Flight Simulator, Age of Empires, and multiple XBox titles had been a blast, I still wanted to go for my dream of making a living as a professional magician and entrepreneur. It was quite the ride – with plenty of ups and downs. I’m an excellent kidshow performer, but the magic of a successful business only became real after I discovered the power of direct response copywriting in the mold of Dan Kennedy, John Caples, and other copy legends. I extended my business to help other magicians successfully sell their services… through webinars, live events, and products. Eventually, my success as a marketer and copywriter led me to join Dan Kennedy’s company – GKIC – where from 2012 to 2015 I led the copy team as Head Copywriter... becoming known as the voice of Dan Kennedy. Today I provide marketing / writing services and counsel to a variety of clients in many different industries. My key superpower – I write FAST. Extremely FAST. I was the fastest writer at Microsoft and I daresay I’m likely the World’s FASTEST Copywriter today. My passion is helping small business owners and entrepreneurs discover how write their own marketing materials FASTER.
