Real Estate Investing and Digital Marketing Writer

Raised in a literal barn in the wilds of southern Missouri without television, it’s no surprise that I knew the ins and outs of classic literature like Catch-22 but had no idea what Miami Vice was. Stringing words together into coherent and (hopefully) entertaining sentences has been the steady storyline of my life ever since.

Eschewing a life of admiration and prestige after high school, I decided to bomb out of the U.S. Naval Academy before the end of the first year and embark on a series of low-paying, unremarkable jobs: bartender, fitness coach, truck driver, convenience store clerk, security guard, rock and roll singer, limo driver, fishmonger, copywriter, paralegal, and now world class backlinking bandito.


Current fascinations include real estate investing, travel technology, and digital marketing.


Current regrets include Mountain Dew, inability to speak Spanish, and winter.
