Me & My Business

Doug Thomas Communications is a one-person freelance copywriting business launched in 2002 and based in Oceanside, Calif.

Leading up to DTC, I worked in several related capacities including:

  • Resume writing business
  • Typist/document formatter
  • Newspaper reporter including four years as a freelancer at the now-defunct North (San Diego) County Times, during which I contributed approximately 350 feature stories
  • Newspaper columnist for a newspaper in New Mexico and another in Colorado
  • News writer/broadcaster for a local radio station in New Mexico

Before I began actually making money with writing, I wrote eight novels – four finished, none published (yet) – and a lot of humorous material including websites, plays, parodies and jokes. I play the guitar and have written more than 500 songs (lyrics and music) from my teen years to present day.

I have never farmed out any writing assignments to other writers and never will. Since 2002 I’ve worked with a wide variety of web and ad agencies, private businesses and entrepreneurs as well as a few nonprofits and municipalities.

I was born in California and have lived for five years or more in Azusa, Covina, and Oceanside, Calif.; Concord, N.H.; Lake Whitney, Texas; and Raton, N.M.
