David Chmiel

Content Strategist, Copywriter, Developmental Editor, Editor, Ghostwriter, Writer, Managing Editor

Experienced author and editor. Well-traveled. Curious. Interested, Competent and Committed.

Born in Scranton (no, Dunder-Mifflin is not a real company.), raised in northeastern PA. Shocked to realize that I have spent nearly half of my life as a New Jersey resident. I am a proud husband to Paula and dad to our sons, Zach and Luke. Humbled that, as the grandson of coal miners, I have spent my adult life talking to interesting people and writing stories.
I am a versatile storyteller and web content developer. A collaborative communicator, leader and mentor, I create consumer, B2B, sponsored creative and marketing products that maximize audience engagement, drive growth, create effective engagement and boost profitability. I use open dialogue, data and experience to inform the strategies and tactics that best serve users and partners, while pivoting quickly to seize new business opportunities.
