Hi. My name is Vince Hempsall. I’m a writer, editor, book author, publisher, content creator and social media marketer. I’m also an alleged “word nerd.”
I studied journalism in university because I loved the idea of doing something different every day and capturing it all in words. From helping create Twitter feeds for hiking resorts to filing articles about harvesting icebergs in Newfoundland, it’s all about keeping things interesting and sharing the story with others. I love writing about the quirky side of life; the things that don’t usually pop up in daily conversation: the amazing rock climbing potential in Oman, for example, or how best to share your wedding vows while on snowboards. You could say that I specialize in writing about the “un-ordinary” in the things we do.
And I’ll use whatever medium is available: books, articles, posts, tweets, letters to my grandfather – whatever the source material, I respect the words within. They are powerful little beings with the ability to seize moments out of time. They can inspire individuals and rouse nations. And really, there’s nothing nerdy about that.
