Bio: Michael Jackman is a Louisville, Ky.-based writer, writing instructor and consultant, and radio commentator. He was born in New York City and has called Louisville home since 1992. (For more info see mjfreelancer.com).

For more than three and a half years he has broadcast what one fan calls "thoughtful/soulful/smartass work" on Ky. Public Radio Stations, lately through Mountain State Public Radio. He also produces weekly tech news podcasts for TechProGuild.

In June 2005 Michael received a Louisville Society of Professional Journalist award for his column Technicalities, an irreverent weekly column on "the bewildering effects of high tech on our lives."

His freelance beats include features, the arts, the outdoors, computers, and Jewish living. Articles on these subjects have appeared nationally and internationally.

Jackman earned an MA in Literature and Creative Writing from the University of Louisville, where he was a student of acclaimed novelist Sena Naslund. He teaches writing courses at Indiana Univ. Southeast and at Spalding Univ.; he also conducts writers workshops such as the annual Snug Hollow Writers Workshop and Retreat, and gives adult classes.

From April to May 2000, while an editor at dot-com startup TechRepublic.com, he trekked in Nepal with then editor/pal David Bard. That they risked their lives as part of a dot-com marketing stunt called "AlmostEverest" was only fitting. After all, it was their idea.

Jackman is president of Rudi Mentory Productions, a production company and booking agency. For more information, contact Michael Jackman at mjackman@mjfreelancer.com.
