Below is a list, with links and descriptions, of many of the pieces I've written as either a freelancer or an in-house writer. This is not a complete library of my work since, for obvious reasons, there's no reason to include the numerous articles I've ghostwritten. Additionally, many of the pieces I wrote for some outlets have since been updated or amended by other writers so I chose not to list them. And there's one whole site I wrote a couple dozen (hilarious) articles for a few years ago that got bought-out and wiped so that content is just plain gone. Ah well, spilt milk and all. Anyway, here's the kind of writing I do:
