David ZM Allison

Writer, copy writer, blogger, email campaigns and social media

For the past 11 years I have been writing articles, web content, copy writing, blogging and social media posts to grow various businesses and projects both as a freelancer and as an employee.

Over the years I have been interviewed as an expert in regard to distance running for various publications (Runner's World, Competitor, Run Haven and Spry Living).

I would describe my natural writing style as one that is humorous, thought provoking and conversational in tone.

In the past few years I have also done more work on the graphic side of the aisle - creating brochures, sales collateral, banner images, presentation slide decks, etc.

I have a B.A. in English from the University of Pennsylvania
