Not manufactured stories but the real ones that come from people who’ve lived a little and done cool stuff. That’s what I like to find and write. The documentary filmmaker who bought his Rolex in Zaire in 1974 and has worn it ever since. The prisoner of war who received a Patek Philippe in the mail. The Navy diver who dove on all three SEALAB missions in the 1960s. Along the way, I’ve met some pretty amazing people: Will Steger, Dr. Sylvia Earle, James Lovell, Jimmy Chin, Fabien Cousteau. Astronauts, aquanauts, mountaineers, polar explorers, heroes. These are stories that inspire us, send us down rabbit holes, push us to learn new skills, take some risks, and live a little ourselves.

Swimpruf offers both editorial writing and commercial copywriting and marketing consultation. Whether it’s long form travel journalism, a profile of a hero, a real world review of a diving watch, or a snappy press release, an ad campaign, or website copywriting, I’ve done it all, both with a byline and behind the scenes, for some of the biggest names in the business. This writing often accompanies our great photography, making for a perfect package of words and images.
