Storyteller & Problem Solver
Helping organizations connect with audiences and audiences understand the world for more than 25 years
What I do
Since 2013, as a full-time freelancer and consultant, I’ve written web copy, news and feature articles, white papers, case studies, email newsletters, annual reports and much more for dozens of businesses, large and small, plus nonprofits, leading universities and media outlets.
In addition to writing, I sometimes provide creative direction and communications strategy. I also consult with and coach selected clients, mostly helping individuals leading small organizations with marketing, management and leadership.
I’ve written on a wide variety of topics over my career. These days I focus primarily on personal finance, higher education, science, health care, professional services, business management and executive leadership. Learn more about my background here, and my professional experience here.

I needed on-deadline web copywriting and editing help that would stick closely to our firm’s content strategy guidelines. Flying Car worked with our current content and re-aligned the substance to fit within our style, tone, and structure. We were very pleased with the quick help and excellent work product. Highly recommended.

Director of Marketing and Business Development, Ward and Smith
Mark and I worked together for several years at the Triad Business Journal, where he reported primarily on health care and media. It often takes reporters here several months to generate enough industry knowledge and source relationships to start breaking significant news, but Mark’s ramp-up time was extremely short. I found him to be intelligent and curious with an insatiable appetite for learning. Mark was also productive, accurate and very good at meeting deadlines. He is someone I would hire again.
Kevin Bumgarner, Editor
Mark is a top-flight communications professional. His writing is crisp, concise and effective. His editorial talents are among the strongest I have ever seen. I recommend him without reservation.
