Andrew Mentock

Freelance Writer and Journalist

My journey as a writer began while I was backpacking in New Zealand. I spent 5 months in Queenstown working construction and, during my free time, wrote as often as I could. Today, I live in South Bend, Indiana where I continue to write every day.

I am an experienced writer with that can match the voice of any publication. I specialize in journalism, sports and popular culture, however, my research skills and objectivity allow me to write for almost any genre. I have written for a number of magazines, newspapers and blogs.

I have also worked on a number of B2B projects for industry-leading companies such as the Horton Group and Patrick Industries.

As a freelance writer, I pride myself on meeting strict deadlines and adhering to a publications style guide. I’m also will to contact and speak to a number sources for an article, and ask them tough questions.

Throughout my career, I have also written press releases for loudspeaker companies and blogged for investment, tech and travel websites.

I graduated cum laude from DePaul University in 2012 with degrees in journalism and psychology.

Other interests of mine include coaching basketball and baseball, watching the NBA, reading a book, eating sushi and drinking an Old Fashioned. Follow me on social media: Instagram: @Drewment2 / Twitter: @AndrewMentock
