About Me

a pretty good word person

I write the words that help people use websites and apps.

Hi, I'm Dave. I'm a UX writer and content strategist with over ten years of experience in digital media. I live in Denver, Colorado with my wife, two dogs, and turtle.

I've been lucky to work at some pretty cool places, including Google, Rotten Tomatoes, Fox Interactive Media (AmericanIdol.com), The Honest Company, and Charter Communications (Spectrum). I've worked on products used by over one billion people per month, and I've also built startups from the ground up. I'm a people-motivated person, and I've been lucky to work with some really great people along the way.

At work and in life, I'm a flexible guy. I've worked on media, support, commerce, and account management products designed for user, developer, and enterprise audiences. I've worked on sexy products and not-so-sexy products, and I've enjoyed aspects of both. I've successfully managed teams of designers and content managers and even led product teams, but I really enjoy being an individual contributor.

Most importantly, I love what I do.
