About Bryan K. Johnston

My elevator pitch? I love words.

Words on the page, words on the stage, writing them, reading them, speaking them out loud.

I’m a former high school English literature, journalism, and drama teacher. Current full-time writer, stand-up comedian, and improv performer. A big switch? You betcha. But I adhere to the philosophy that cool things happen outside our comfort zone.

I spent 12+ years teaching and living as an international expat, with stops in Beijing, Dubai, Shanghai, & Guangzhou, and travel to more places than I can reasonably list here. Dad to a high school junior and a Portuguese water dog. Lover of funny things & people. Oh, and craft beer.

I’ve been a voracious reader for as long as I can remember. My love affair with writing started with a short story contest in grade four, the winner attending a workshop with my favourite author at the time, Eric Wilson (anyone remember the Tom & Liz Austen mysteries?).

I came in second.

But What Can I Do For You?

Because that's the million dollar question, right?

I can share my credentials (BFA in acting, B.Ed in English lit, American Writers & Artists Inc. copywriting program, Introduction to Creative Writing at The University of Guelph) and my experience (twelve years teaching at various levels, seven years as a full-time ghostwriter-for-hire), but that doesn't give you an answer.

I can provide the words you need to grow your brand and spread awareness: sales letter, copy for your website, landing page, email series, or content for your blog or newsletter.

I take the pressure off, allowing you to focus on other areas of your business. Your expertise may not be words and writing. Mine is.

And I want to help. As a former teacher, I can get your message across in a way that is understood by everyone.

Bryan has been amazing.
