Mark Ray

Copywriter, Ghostwriter, Writer

Profile writer and Aetna white paper contributor.

Aside from the school play I wrote in third grade, my writing career began when I studied English and journalism at the University of Mississippi. After a stint with the Boy Scouts of America in the early 1990s, I worked as a copy editor and editor for The Cobb Group (a division of Ziff Davis) and as a communications specialist in Humana Inc.'s corporate communications department before launching my freelance career in 1998. Since then, I've written books, annual reports, CEO speeches, Sunday-school lessons, blog posts, and hundreds of magazine and newsletter articles, finding new ways every day to turn words into action.
