I've always had a passion for all things creative. When I was a child, I wrote stories in which my guinea pigs had super powers and flew around fighting evil hamsters. In the 6th grade, I won the DARE poster contest and got a little medal. In high school, I wrote my first novel. When I went to NYU to earn a writing degree, I took every opportunity to explore the creative world – taking special effects makeup classes, learning Photoshop and Final Cut Pro, and even taking an Indian dance class despite my general lack of coordination.
Since graduating, I've worked as a writer, editor, and content manager, dealing with all sorts of content. I've written business pieces for Forbes, sports articles, pharmaceutical brochures, cookbooks, and math textbook problems; the list goes on and on.
I've also gotten to explore other creative mediums, developing videos for martial arts studios, sifting through reality TV footage for production companies (I don't think I could ever watch another episode of Hardcore Pawn), and guest starring on Sirius XM Sports Radio.
Along my journey, I have come to realize that I'm not just interested in writing, but in the entire creative process: Brainstorming ideas and devising a plan, creating content, be it writing for print or online, designing inforgraphics and developing videos, and, finally, implementing all aspects of the plan, including project management and effective problem solving.
To further my understanding of what goes into creating and managing a website, I founded FootballPrime.com, a site with fantasy football advice and analysis. I have built Football Prime from the ground up – creating the actual website, devising a brand, and designing graphics. I also recruited writers, edited, wrote, and advertised. I learned things that I didn't know I needed to know. I've loved every minute of it.
So if you need a creative thinker, content creator, or project manager, contact me. Let's find out if I'm the right person for the job.
I ghostwrite articles on behalf of CEOs of multi-million dollar companies, specifically concentrating on thought-leadership pieces.
Founder, Football Prime
In 2014, I created FootballPrime.com, which features fantasy football articles and rankings, as well as other NFL content. I currently manage all aspects of the website.
I completed a feature length screenplay in the thriller genre, Tabula Rasa, as well as a fantasy-adventure novel.
Freelance Writing & Editing
I write and edit marketing, training, and educational materials for clients in both the print and digital space.
I was instrumental in growing the startup website, FootballNation.com, copyediting 20+ articles daily, brainstorming new ways to grow the website, and developing content.
Creator, The Jeff & The Bonch Show
In December 2011, I created The Jeff & The Bonch Show, a video series featuring expert football analysis that comes out weekly during the NFL season. To date, over 50 episodes have been produced.
I have completed several production projects using Final Cut Pro X. I created martial arts promotional videos for a MMA studio in New York City and also held a temp position at Zodiac Productions.
Founder, Jeffrey The Great
I have always enjoyed creating fun articles and videos, and in 2010 I started the website JeffreyTheGreat.com to feature my own content, like personal stories and Top 10 Lists.
At the Rita & Burton Goldberg Department of Dramatic Writing (Tisch-NYU), my courses included: Screenwriting, Playwriting, Writing the 1/2 Hour Comedy, Comic Book Writing, Special Effects Make-Up, and Fundamentals of Film-Making.
I have had the opportunity to study under some outstanding writers, such as Sabrina Dhawan (writer, Monsoon Wedding), Bryan Goluboff (writer, The Basketball Diaries, HBO's In Treatment), and esteemed playwright/screenwriter, Richard Wesley.
My senior year, I held an internship in the Editorial Department of DC Comics. I had the opportunity to complete writing projects, like working on a special edition Green Lantern issue.
Creator, NFL Super Charts
I use my Photoshop skills to create infographics that combine NFL stats, images, Top 10 Lists, rankings, and predictions.
