A bit about me

Michael Gursky is a longtime writer, entertainment journalist, and veteran online content creator who’s slightly uncomfortable writing in the third person.  Though Michael leans more towards the comedic, entertaining side of writing and creating, he’s skilled and experienced in various realms beneath the umbrella of “Publishing Communications,” from technical copywriting to novel editing and much in between.   

Alright, enough of that writing about me as if I’m not me stuff. 

Let’s work!  I’d be thrilled to craft your copy, contribute to your blog, write you some jokes, or spice up your content.

That’s what it comes down to, you know?

Throughout this timeline I also experienced personal growth.  That’s what it comes down to, you know?  Additionally I worked over 9 years in customer service and sales roles, because one needs to in order to survive while writing (and I do love communication, conversation, and genuine connection.)
