Hi, I’m Tom Mangan and Verb Nerd Industries is my business.

I’m a B2B content marketing writer and editor specializing in technology, healthcare, fitness, insurance, and renewable energy.
I worked in newspapers including the San Jose Mercury News for a couple of decades up through 2009, when I left the newspaper biz.

Today I’m a full-time content professional. I work mostly on the marketing side of things, but all those years in journalism have made me a fiend for research, accuracy, balance, taste, and just plain old common sense.

People pay me to create:

  • ebooks
  • white papers
  • articles
  • blog posts
  • web copy
  • product infosheets
  • case studies
  • emails
  • press releases

As a freelancer, I’ve worked for household-name brands like Priceline, Motorola, and Stanford University. I’ve written about two-way radios, edited webpages for some of the world’s brightest engineering students, and sculpted copy for personal trainers and other fitness professionals.

Today I do a lot of work with the excellent team at Blue Star Design, a branding, design, and content marketing agency based in Cleveland, Ohio. Our clients include:

I also do substantive editing for the IDEA Fitness Journal and American Fitness, a quarterly publication of the Athletics and Fitness Association of America and the National Academy of Sports Medicine.
