Tom Brandes, President and Writer-in-Chief
A full-time professional writer for more than 20 years, I’ve worked with a wide range of customers in various industries, including health care, manufacturing, technology, food and finance, plus I have experience writing about sustainability and renewable energy.
I received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnesota, and a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies degree from Hamline University, St. Paul, Minnesota.
I enjoy all types of writing assignments and I’ve never missed a deadline. In 20 years, I’ve written a variety of materials for a range of customers from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses and entrepreneurs. To every project I bring passion, enthusiasm and a sense of humor. I love a challenge and I’ve never met a project I didn’t enjoy.
You’ve got a story tell and I’d love to help you tell it. So when you need a writer to help you with writing, editing or proofing, call or email me to get started.
I have successfully completed thousands of writing assignments for a variety of customers, including websites, newsletters, brochures, speeches, articles, video scripts, case studies, white papers, press releases, sales materials, direct mail pieces, annual reports, catalog copy and more.
My work has appeared in a number of leading publications, including Auto Magazine, Display Devices, Fire Chief, IBM Systems, New Hampshire Wildlife Journal, Occupational Hazards, Photonics Spectra, Signs of the Times, Trailer and Body Builder, and Urban Land.
