Chris Keam

Chris Keam scraped by in high school and spent a brief stint in college. Despite that, he's made a living as a writer and editor in corporate communications, broadcasting, and as a freelancer for over twenty years (so he must be doing something right!)

Chris's professional goals include the growth of his freelance copywriting business and continuing to work covering the sustainable transportation beat. He is also working on various creative writing projects and contemplating various small business enterprises. Mostly, Chris wants to have enough money to retire one day, buy a boat, and see the world without having to burn a lot of jet fuel in the process.

Reporting Beat: Cycling and the social, economic, and urban planning aspects of self-propelled transportation.
