About

I'm a freelance writer and editor with more than 22 years' experience writing for print, Internet, radio and television. I have a wide and varied background, writing-wise from comedy, to music, to business and finance. Currently I write mostly business and finance related content on a variety of topics. I enjoy seeking out the "story behind the story" - the things that move stock, motivate buyers and sellers - and help make the world of commerce work. When I am not writing, I fish. I also enjoy hiking, reading, and playing my trombone. But mostly I fish. You can contact me by email: jprobasco61@gmail.com or Twitter: @jrpro62
