About Me

Hi, I’m Donovan. 👋

I help people live better lives by and make good decisions.

As a lifelong student of psychology, I have a passion for understanding what motivates people to buy or take action. 

After starting three web-based software companies, and spending two decades as a web marketing manager, I realized:

Direct response copywriting is the most important skill in marketing, because it gets people to take action.

Clean code and nice design don’t sell people.

Words do.

Direct response copywriting combines my favorite things (in no particular order):

  • Communication,
  • Persuasion,
  • Teaching,
  • Usability,
  • Writing,
  • Motivational Psychology, and 
  • Salesmanship.

Need a copywriter who’s focused on getting you results?

Need someone who understands why people buy and loves getting them to do it?

I use my 20+ years of marketing experience to write words that make people’s lives better.

A Wide Range of Marketing and Communication Experience

In 1997, I graduated from CSUEB, in the first M.A. of Multimedia class in the world. Today few people even know what that term means, but it influenced me as a content creator, for better or for worse. 

Back in the day, it was good to be a generalist. Now companies want specialists.

To avoid confusion, I limit what I showcase on this site.

But, the fact is I have a heck of a skill set that includes (in no particular order):

  • Video production – ALL facets including shooting, editing 
  • Leadership
  • Analysis and strategy
  • Usability
  • ChatGPT and Midjourney

  • Disciplined Agile project management
  • Copywriting
  • Content writing
  • Social media
  • Photography
  • Design
  • WordPress development and administration
