Most every job I’ve had in the last 15 years has had a recurring theme: talk to people, then write about them. Or write with them. Or write for them. Lather, rinse, repeat. The only thing I enjoy more than chatting folks up is producing/wordsmithing a story that deserves to be told.

As 2022 begins, I find myself searching for a new forever gig—something that checks a lot of boxes. My career coach says half the battle is knowing what you want and refusing to settle. So, I thought I’d manifest my own destiny and put out into the universe: 1) the kind of company I want to work for and 2) the skills I wholeheartedly want to utilize . . .

Mr. Mackie is one of the best and hardest working writers in Kansas City so we're certain he'll find many options await him.
