Hugh C. McBride is an award-winning writer, editor, and photographer with a strong background in education, communication, public relations, and marketing.
He’s also someone who doesn’t enjoy writing about himself in the third person, so he’s going to stop doing that now.
I spent most of the 1990s as a high school English teacher in Ohio & Pennsylvania. In 2000, I moved to Stuttgart, Germany, where I spent six years as a civilian public affairs employee for the U.S. Department of Defense.
In 2007, I relocated to California, where I began a career in digital marketing with CRC Health Group (then the nation’s largest provider of behavioral healthcare services for adults and adolescents).
If there’s been one constant in my various professional endeavors, it’s that they’ve all placed a premium on presenting information to people in the means that is most likely to engage, inform, and empower them.
Whether teaching high school sophomores to appreciate the power of a well crafted noun clause or helping families in crisis find the right treatment for their loved one, my objective has always been to connect people with the information they need.
When I do my job right, that connection is both meaningful and motivational, expanding recipients’ understanding and equipping them to take informed action.
