Bob McDonnell Renaissance man
I call myself renaissance man because of my diverse, even eclectic background. My career spans more than 40 years with experience ranging from high-tech (Hewlett-Packard) to nonprofit (United Way) to higher education (CollegeAmerica). Now I am a freelance writer living in Loveland, CO.
I am open to any work in regard to articles, columns, book reviews, restaurant reviews, newsletter articles, etc.
I have always loved words–both spoken and written. In the past, I have been a Toastmaster for more than 17 years, giving speeches at meetings and to the public.
Reading has always been an interest of mine. Right now, I have three library cards with an eye on a couple more. One of my “jobs” now is writing every week for the Berthoud (CO) Surveyor newspaper. I do features, columns, opinion pieces and report on meetings. My work has also appeared in the Loveland (CO) Reporter-Herald and the Cedar Rapids (IA) Gazette.
Additionally, I have written restaurant reviews for the Homesteader-Northern Colorado edition and published newsletter articles in the Sage (District 26 Toastmaster) publication.
Reviewing books is a new activity for me. I can usually get them printed in a local paper and/or on a bookselling web site.
Here are some books I have reviewed:
