    Biography

    I graduated from Heidelberg College with majors in math and theatre, as well as a B.S. in Physics. I moved to Minneapolis in 1978 and began work as a writer and actor. I found that my science and math experiences greatly contributed to my writing expertise.

    Soon, I was writing print collateral for companies such as 3M, Honeywell, and Northern Telecom. I also began writing for television. Two screenplays went on to win awards, including an IRIS Award for "Best Entertainment in a Medium Market."

    I moved to New York City in 1985 and branched out into other types of writing. I created a host of educational and promotional materials including merchandising & sales videos, training videos, corporate I.D. videos, brochures, sight sellers, product launches, marketing, and merchandising manuals. Many of my clients on the East coast were Fortune 500 Companies, such as Citibank NA, Exxon, Pfizer Inc, and Fuji Film.

    I returned to Minneapolis in 1993 and moved into the field of digital media. I wrote a number of websites (including the current Domino's Pizza site) and CD-Roms. I also began producing for television. I received a "Freddy Award" in 1997 from the AMA's International Health and Medical Film Festival for writing and producing the Newton's Apple television segment, "What Makes Bones So Strong."

    Currently, I work out of the home office I share with my lovely wife, Cathy.
