Mike Armstrong

Content Specialist

Introduction

I'm a versatile writer based in Chicago. I write copy, blogs, short fiction, articles, social media... pretty much anything you can throw at me, I can write. I'm also a homebrewer, beer drinker, open-source enthusiast, guitarist, and I'm pretty good at Halo. I am UrbanBound's Content Specialist, which allows me to learn and write about tons of different locations so that relocating employees will have a better grasp of their new cities.
