About Dan

Dan's the name, writing's the game.

A bona fide "word nerd" who sometimes dreams up brand taglines in his sleep

I provide blog content, brand copy, and powerful bios to clients across the world. For the past several years, I’ve contributed to blogs like Trello, Big Cartel, Zapier, Skillshare, Grasshopper, and GoToMeeting. On platforms like Upwork, I’ve sustained long-term success as a Top Performer with a 100% client satisfaction rating. I’ll help you find the most engaging story you have to tell—and then draft it in a way that meets your personal and professional goals.

A passion for finding the right words

Fifth grade. Co-winner. D.A.R.E. essay contest. Yes, I’m still that kid.

In high school, some kids went home and played video games. I went home and wrote ten pages of a novel every day. But it’s been a long journey from there to here. Writing workshops, office life, then ditching the corporate copywriting route to work directly for clients. 

 In my personal time, I’ve published several short stories and poems, including one nominated for the 2023 Pushcart Prize. I also like to freeze in the Wisconsin cold and take pictures of space. Don’t judge.

Client Testimonials

As a freelance writer myself, I have a pretty high bar for the people I work with. Dan manages to effortlessly pole-vault over that bar with every single project. He’s an incredibly gifted and compelling writer, which in and of itself is hard to find. But, he’s also deadline-driven, communicative, organized, detail-oriented, and conscientious. He’s one of the best I’ve worked with—plain and simple.

     -Kat Boogaard

Dan is hands down one of the best writers I’ve ever worked with. He’s thorough, pays attention to detail, and can match any writing voice I throw at him.

     -Kaleigh Moore

Dan is a pleasure to work with on so many different levels. He is an excellent writer and can tackle any task you throw at him. He has an excellent command of the English language and can nail any tone–from professional to cheeky. He is also extremely competent. He has a stellar writing process, hits deadlines, and uses excellent research and examples. If you’re looking for a great writer–pick Dan.

Dan is phenomenal! His writing was beyond my expectations in providing a high-quality LinkedIn Summary that was professional, personable, quality content – and helped me land my dream job. Thank you!

     -Sara Hasni

Dan is a pro. I’ve hired him to write direct response and email campaigns for us, and he can handle any topic with expertise. We’ve seen response rates as high as 55-70% over the length of 30-day campaigns he’s written.

Dan Kenitz is a prompt, thorough, and all-around great writer.

     -Emma Siemasko

I was looking for someone to write an attorney bio for me that was clever, succinct, and played up my strengths. Dan is very responsive and tailors his questionnaire with just the right questions to get a well-rounded picture of you so he can craft a well-written bio. With his previous reviews, I expected a lot, and he did not disappoint. What I received was a phenomenal and nuanced bio that did exactly what I requested.
