John Garvey, MBA

Copywriter, Journalist, Storyteller

A business journalist and freelance writer, I contribute to a half dozen magazines and news publications. I've tackled diverse topics including cleantech, business model innovation, the Colorado hemp industry, wellness and passive architecture. I also enjoy writing about anything that’s brewed, distilled or fermented. Editors enjoy working with me, readers enjoy my style, and I treat deadlines religiously.

RELIABLE, ENTERTAINING CONTENT
