My career took off in 1992 when I landed my first job as a clown.
Since then my career as a clown has gone from strength to strength. By 2002 I was cold calling as a business development manager… by 2007 I was running Adelaide’s largest Camp and Hike department and climbing wall. My boss at the time said (probably as I was hitched to the climbing wall popping balloons in the roof space with a knife attached to a 16ft surf rod), “You know, Mike… you’re a real outdoorstype!”
I’m stuck with it now.
I’m interested in how great writing comes about and the “tricks of the trade.” I’m always learning new ways to express the revolutionary changes that travel invokes. Travel will always invoke change in and around all of us. Flying, driving, riding, hiking, cruising, trains, buses, ferries…whatever. Staying with family or mates, camping, glamping, resorts, four and five star hotels and apartments, motels, caravans, cabins, in the car…whatever it takes hey?
Small mistakes in written content can erode confidence and credibility and I still make these mistakes too! Only by putting feedback in place can we fix them all.
In the digital age the opportunities for promotion are endless. Excellent writing isn’t enough if you don’t promote it effectively.
I did social media via BBS, SMS, and MSN in the nineties.
I understand modern social media like the back of my hand and I’ll help you make sense of it.
I know how to put together a social media campaign.
My extensive retail background (25 years/15 years management) taught me to communicate and lead teams where needed.
I’ve qualified for a Diploma but I’m completing an Advanced Diploma of Professional Writing at AC Arts.
Let’s work together.
I live in Adelaide, South Australia, but that doesn’t mean my work doesn’t apply anywhere in the world.
In 2014 I took my family to Europe, I love to travel with them. I’m just a boy from western Sydney and I write accurate and engaging content that speaks to all experience levels.
I write for a living. I travel, camp, fish, and hike whenever I can while raising two daughters with my wife. My broad experience and my writing skill and technique will add demonstrable value to your website, social media, project, or publication.
