I am a freelance professional writer and entrepreneur born and bred in the United States of America. My business (The Gardener Group) provides high quality copy, content, and editing services to the general public. We also provide business consulting/coaching, market development, and brand management solutions to a variety of small and large businesses. Our consistent focus and our bottom line is on People, Planet, and Profit (in that order). Understanding that what we do impacts our environment and finding "simple sustainable solutions" to the problems we all face is what drives us. Our motto: Love Is Always The Answer. My professional history and experience is mostly in the areas of sales and marketing, but I've also performed many other fascinating functions throughout my career. I spent 10 years in professional real estate (including sales, investment, and brokerage) and have extensive experience in the hospitality industry as well. I spent a couple years pursuing micro-farming and organic food distribution as a career and have worked with a host of world class companies. These include Food and Thought, RE/MAX International, The Walt Disney Corporation, Bloomin' Brands, ArtVan Furniture, New Horizons Computer Learning Centers, and more. Personally, I have an affinity for travel and am a bit of a foodie. I have lived and worked in 8 states to date. My favorite, thus far, was Hawaii where I spent time as a professional fisherman and a surf instructor on the islands of Oahu and Kauai respectively. I hope to sail the world one day (which is one of the reasons I do what I do). I love good food, books, films and adventure. My writing is constantly being perfected and is a source of great joy for me. I recently decided to sharpen my pencil a bit more and re-enrolled at Grand Valley State University after nearly 2 decades in the business sector. There, I am on track to complete a bachelor's degree in Creative/Professional writing by April of 2014. The abundant resources available to me there are a real asset. I have been blessed to be professionally coached by some great men throughout the years: Brian Buffini, Paul Starner, Floyd Wickman, and Brian Kelly to name a few, but my greatest coaches have been my parents and my King: Jesus. I am a family man (father of 5) who likes to help people achieve their goals and I hope to leave this world better for having been in it. I'd like to help you if I can and will always do my best to serve you and treat you fairly. I am committed to excellence and driven to provide you with the best service available on the market today.
I'm an experienced article writer who began with traditional newspaper writing in college. My education includes a bachelor's degree in Economics, but the most valuable aspect of my education is the fact that I learned how to learn. I am capable of effectively researching any topic and writing articulately about that topic. I worked as an article writer for over ten years and balanced a 20-hour-per-week news reporter's job with a full-time job as a compliance officer and public relations specialist for a beverage company. I supported the same firm with QA work. Every job I have had in the past 20 years has focused on communication, writing and correspondence of some sort. I have worked in food manufacturing and currently I work as a purchasing agent in the safety and security industry. I am currently the Vegan Food Examiner for the Brighton/Denver (CO) area. Vegan and animal issues are a specialty of mine and I am well connected to credible sources in this area. Food quality is another area of professional expertise-working in compliance for the food and beverage industry, I learned every aspect of food quality in production and manufacturing and how it applies to compliance with laws and with corporate mandates that are verified by official audits. Yoga, holistic health and spirituality are a personal pursuit that led to me becoming a certified, professional Yoga teacher. Yoga is a major part of who I am. I'm also a barefoot runner. Please see my blog, Almost Barefoot, for more information!

I am a graduate of Thomas Edison State College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Humanities. Although this specific degree covers many areas, my main areas of study consisted of English, Literature, and Writing. Within the bounds of my higher education, I learned how to successfully write in many genres including fiction, non-fiction, persuasion, news reporting, and PR. It was also part of my college career to learn extensive information about the English language, communication, and also the works of countless literary figures and philosophers. Apart from the academic tools gained, I also learned how to successfully write using computer programs, do extensive research in a professional manner, submit projects before or precisely on deadlines, and communicate on a successful and professional level with those with whom I am working. Concerning communication, 90% of my interactions with those of a professional/educational level over the past three years has been strictly via email, posts, and telephone. Therefore, I have communicational abilities that will assist me in communicating successfully with all employers with which I interact. As a side note, I have also progressively worked on a novel over the years which has assisted me in developing the ability to organize huge tasks into small, manageable parts. I have also trained as an ambassador for a program called CollegePlus! which required me to organize my own promotional event, write my own speech, create a presentation, and deliver information in a fresh and exciting way. This training enhanced the skills of effective communication, interaction, and writing, bringing my proficiency in these areas to a higher level. I know my experience will be of great benefit to me and to those who employee me. I look forward to working with you in the very near future.
