I'll Show You Mine, Then You Show Me Yours
A PORTFOLIO OF THE AUTHOR'S PUBLISHED WRITING...
Introduction: I'm a professional writer and editor, with more than 1,000 articles and several books published in both print and digital media. I've written more than a million words, and worked both on-staff and freelance.
I've also written marketing and advertising materials for a broad range of products companies, as well as press releases, white papers, eBooks, reports, and other collateral materials, for agencies, manufacturers and distributors. Mostly in the marine industry, but sometimes outside of it.
A while back, someone challenged my claim to experience, saying he could not find substantiation for it. Which was, to some extent, understandable because not all print media were retroactively digitized, following the dawning of the digital publishing era.
The challenge he made was not, of course, in good faith, and so should not have troubled me. But it did. And it caused me to reflect upon the realities of making such claims to extensive experience in a field and then needing to provide some form of substantiation for those claims.
I pondered the issue for a long time and eventually concluded it was necessary to prepare a retrospective professional portfolio of publications
Fortunately, through the years, I've kept tear sheets of a good percentage of my print media publications. Which collection proved quite useful as the basis for assembling the following portfolio. The effort, by the way, turned out serendipitously to be a quite enjoyable trek down memory lane.
So without further ado, for what it's worth, I present the portfolio to you here. And to the doubting-Thomas, I say, "Okay, I'll show you mine, then you show me yours." — Phil Friedman

About me, Phil Friedman: With 30 some years background in the marine industry, I've worn numerous hats — as a yacht designer, boat builder, marine operations and business manager, marine industry consultant, marine marketing and communications specialist, yachting magazine writer and editor, yacht surveyor, and marine industry educator. Including a several years stint as the CEO and president of a world-class luxury yacht builder and refit shipyard, employing 600 people at two locations in the U.S. I am also trained and experienced in interest-based negotiation and mediation. And in a previous life, I taught logic and philosophy at university.
As a professional writer and editor with more than 1,000 publications in print and digital media, I've recently launched an online writing improvement course, www.learn2engage.org.
At learn2engage we help writers and would-be writers improve their reasoning skills and thinking abilities, and as a matter of course, thereby help them improve the quality of their writing. Instruction is handled directly by yours truly, over the internet and as required in person, both one-on-one and in small supportive groups.
For more information and to arrange for a free 1/2-hour consult, call or email email@example.com.
