Mark Keating is a forty-something writer, editor, and policy wonk living in Northeast Ohio. His first “real” job (after the mandatory paperboy stint) was selling hot dogs at the old Cleveland Stadium. Forsaking the glamor of professional football, he then moved to issue advocacy, specifically environmental issues, which remain his passion.
Old enough to remember the crying American Indian PSAs, cynical enough to scoff at “Nuclear Free Zones” in northeast Ohio, young enough to live through the “greenhouse gases/global warming/or is it?” debate, he writes Markkeating’s Blog as a means to help sort out the tangle of energy costs, pollution, energy independence, and how addressing those issues in a serious way could affect the American consumer.
Hobbies and interests include guitar, martial arts, sudoku, collecting fountain pens, hi-tech gadgets of all sorts, and speaking and writing about himself in the third person. Keep him in paper and ink – visit his commercial freelance writing website, Aim-Write.com.
