About Me

I'm the co-founder and CEO of nDash.co...and I've been a writer for all of my professional life. I've been a news/sports reporter for a small-town newspaper in Maine, where I grew up. I've ghostwritten books. I've written content for several tech startups. Then in 2013, I founded nDash Marketing, an award-winning agency that specializes in content creation. 

Today, my focus is on building and refining the platform you're on right now. My goal is to improve the lives of freelance writers by getting them better clients, and to help brands publish more meaningful content. I don't do a whole lot of writing anymore, but I'm usually game for a guest post or two every month. 

Anyway, I'm pretty excited that you've brought your brand into the nDash community. I'm looking forward to your feedback.

Freelancers: Friend or Foe of Your Marketing Agency?

This was a guest post I wrote for HubSpot's Agency Post, where I argued that freelancers are (under the right conditions) one of the most valuable resources for a marketing agency.

Hiring a Content Creator? Here Are 4 Skills You’re Probably Overlooking

Hire for attitude, train for skill. It's a noble idea, but a flawed one in my view, especially when it comes to hiring content creators. I discussed this in another HubSpot guest post.

Experience

CEO & Co-Founder

nDash.co is a web-based platform that allows brands to create content communities; groups of writers selected on the basis of background, expertise, creativity and price. With the ability to recruit, on-board, manage and pay writers in one central hub, nDash.co helps brands scale content creation (without sacrificing quality). Writers can set their own rates from Day 1, proactively pitch brands unique content ideas, and list their full experience on a detailed profile page (with no anonymity). By removing arbitrary rating systems, rate restrictions and other obstacles, nDash was designed to quickly attract the world's top writing talent. We're currently seeking beta users who are interested in getting early access to the platform. To build (or join) a content community, please visit www.ndash.co.

I worked there from 9/2015 until now
