    United States - Last active: 26 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 2

    I am an extremely passionate writer and an excellent wordsmith. Much of my writing is witty, conversational, intelligent and unique; the stuff that isn't is being edited at the moment. I can write an upstanding non-fiction or informative piece or a compelling fiction piece. I also try to follow these ideals in my daily life: My best work is ahead of me. Get things done. Edit. Live each day with discipline. Apologize quickly and often. Write thank you notes. Listen to big ideas. Think of big ideas. Checklists are extremely rewarding. Write 1000 words a day for fun. Practice. If something can't be seen creatively, move to a different angle and look again. Everyone is their own protagonist. Respect that. Take responsibility for everything you do. Be a Renaissance man. Wear as many hats as possible for a few years. Specialize in something after those few years. Be annoyingly curious. Edit. Some of the topics I love writing about include: travel, health and fitness, finances, advice, fiction, advertising, small business marketing, heuristics, hiking, mountaineering, self-help, fashion, music, weddings and pedagogy.
