R.J. Post

Copywriting & Content Creation

R.J. is adept at getting to the heart of your message, and relaying it to your audience. In his spare time, he likes to collect and tinker with vintage Apple computers.

R.J. is never more at home than with an open Word document on the computer screen and Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary in his hand. In fact, he has two dictionaries on his desk and a third bookmarked on his computer. “Word nerd” is a label he would proudly wear, although “wordsmith” has a better ring to it.

Having spent 31 years as a newspaper reporter and editor before joining IdeaBank, R.J. has written, assigned or edited more stories than he could possibly calculate. (Math was never his strong suit.) As a kid reading comic books, he always liked Clark Kent better than Superman. Although ink still flows through his veins, he’s equally at home writing copy for websites or radio and TV spots. If it involves words, he’ll tackle it.

R.J. earned his Bachelor of Arts in English from St. Mary of the Plains College in Dodge City, Kan. Because his alma mater has been closed for more than 20 years, you’ll often see him wearing apparel from other colleges that family have attended, taught at or merely lived nearby. A lover of outmoded technology, he collects (and sometimes tinkers with) vintage Apple computers and has been known to haunt vinyl record shops on vacation.
