Words have always come easily to David Weiss.
He discovered his talent early on for assembling a sentence — or a whole bunch of them — and then making those words go to work. An early start in music journalism led to a distinct spin on technology later on. He found he could take on even the most technical subjects and give them a rhythm. David loves the challenge of taking on tough-to-write-about topics, and making them appealing and engaging.
Today, when he works with clients on their branding, marketing and PR needs, David’s writing style is just the start. He’s launched his own successful brands, so he understands what it means to be on the ground floor with your creation, and then make it grow. His best practices start with his own real-life experiences.
