My name is David R. Gately and I am a DC-based freelance writer. I grew up in Norwood, Massachusetts, and now live in the lovely Nation's capital.
I have an undergrad degree from Suffolk University in Boston and a master's from American University in DC. I'm also a return Peace Corps volunteer from Botswana, in southern Africa.
I've been in communications my whole career. I worked at Boston magazine, been a technical writer for a government contractor, a communications specialist at an international think tank, and a communications director for a DC-based engineering association. I'm currently an exec assistant / writer at the DC office of a national travel magazine.
Thank you for reading my Red Room blog and stay tuned for more.
When I'm not working or writing, I like to read–the NYT, VF, NY magazine, Esquire, etc.–ride my bike, go to movies, travel, hang with friends and family, the usual.
