Perhaps you’d be more comfortable surrendering your brain to me if we were better acquainted.
My name is Stephen Knapp.
I was born in Tucson.
I was raised in Evergreen, Colorado.
I have a bachelor’s degree in history, the attainment of which parchment required twenty-two (22) years and the intellectual contributions of no fewer than six (6) institutions of higher thinking.
I’m a freelance writer currently living in my piney hometown and working tirelessly for the amelioration of human suffering.
Also for money, I have at various times labored as a restaurant night manager in Evergreen, as the chef at a Greek restaurant in Boulder, as a graveyard-shift aircraft support monkey at a busy FBO at Anchorage International Airport, and as a helicopter flight-seeing expediter in Denali National Park.
Perhaps more relevant to our purpose, I spent four (4) years as a staff writer for Evergreen Newspapers. While almost Olympian humility prevents me from saying it directly, my legions of admirers will tell you that more than a dozen of my feature articles have been honored to receive Colorado Press Association and Society of Professional Journalists awards, and that a dozen others were requested for reprinting in publications from Big Sur to the Chesapeake. They might also mention – on my behalf – how I made substantial contributions to two (2) separate volumes of Colorado history, and how I self-published a colorful Evergreen guidebook.
But I wish they wouldn’t.
It embarrasses me.
Even so, and in perfect keeping with my famously generous nature, I am pleased to offer my services to anyone desiring assistance at thinking, or writing, or some combination thereof.
Such persons are warmly invited to contact me at email@example.com.
