ARTICLES & BLOGS

I used to do a whole, heapin' helping of freelance writing/editing work, mostly veteran-related humor and marketing article (plus a bunch of ghostwriting that is super secret so shhhh). I took time off to focus of my MFA and now regularly write fun pieces on history and current events as a big part of my current day job.

Below are the pieces that have been published under my own name over the years. Enjoy.

Note: UniformStories has, in the time since I wrote for them, been bought out by another company that has taken down the links to the articles I wrote for them. Hopefully they re-publish them in the near future, otherwise I will put them up somewhere myself. There was some pretty funny stuff in them.
