I Am an Author and Writer
I have co-authored two acclaimed nonfiction books, the best books ever published about the world-famous Disneyland Custodial team:
Cleaning the Kingdom: Insider Tales of Keeping Walt's Dream Spotless

Experience: Speeches, talking points, media releases, media advisories, executive communications, public notices, reports, analysis & commentary, features, newsletter articles, media & event reviews, essays, columns, blogging, show writing, screenwriting, prose, comedy. 31 years of experience.
Some people think of writing as a chore. I, however, love to write.
Writing is a constant part of my job at work. I also write at home.
As for fiction, I write prose, screenplays, and any kind of thematic entertainment writing (show writing). I did concept and character development for a now-defunct interactive game and attraction design firm and continue to work on my own projects. Drama, comedy, satire, parody - I'm versatile, and I'm always looking for more projects.
