Over the past 12 years, I have had the opportunity to expand my journalism and editorial abilities to commercial work for partners, mostly in the outdoor space but often beyond that.
Let’s tell your story.
Storytelling has always been my strength. Through some great working relationships, I have been able to tell stories for brands. Let’s face it, the more authentic the story, the better. And I enjoy learning about the products, particularly when they have environmentally friendly properties.
I’ve been tasked with web copy, product description, writing scripts, social media content, look books, directing brand video, developing campaigns, and telling ambassador’s stories for several brands, some of which I was already a supporter of. Sometimes it’s just a few taglines. Other times, it’s writing an entire catalog.
Among the brands I have worked with are Vans, Reef, Roxy, Olo Kai, Vuori, Digipower, Journeymen and the Tide Table Group.

Tide Table Project
The start of 2018 has been one of the best of my career, loaded with fantastic projects.

You may know them as the Mud City restaurants - Mud City Crab House, Parker's Garage Ship Bottom Shellfish, The Black Whale, and the Old Causeway. As I get more involved ...
Just Beneath the Surface, Season Two
For the last several years I've put a lot of time an effort in a mini-documentary series based on the LBI Region called Just Beneath the Surface with Oak Leaf Media. It's mean to give folks a deeper understanding of life here - the outdoors, the cultural and the people. It's not about bringing more people necessarily, it's about making more engaged visitors. The idea is to give people a sense of pride for where they live year round or for the ...
Visit Ocean County Video Spot
After seeing our mini-documentary series, Just Beneath the Surface, Ocean County's Office of Tourism and Business Development hired myself and Oak Leaf Media to create a video spot for the county. We were very excited to take on this project. We took a couple of days this summer and put together something that really shows the best of Ocean County. Our models were awesome. Brie Fagan and Dave Ambrose especially were troopers. Archie even made a cool cameo at Jenk's Aquarium. I ...

Jared Hart/Brian Fallon Acoustic Release
Every single day I am grateful for getting to occasionally work with the artists I love. This was a piece I wrote during the Red Bull Sound Select Days. Brian Fallon and Jared Hart had recorded a few Gaslight and Scandals songs for a digital release. "A couple of weeks ago, Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem brought Jared Hart, the young frontman of The Scandals, a punk band out of Bayonne, New Jersey, into a Manhattan studio to lay ...
