A lifelong lover of sports, books, and writing, I am an award winning writer and sometime sports talk radio host.  I have been published in local and national media and was awarded the 2009 Laurie O'Brien award for graduate nonfiction at the University of West Florida.

I grew up in Northern California before moving to Germany to finish high school, where my passion for photography was born.  After high school, I spent twenty years in the US Air Force before settling in Florida where I rekindled my passion for writing.

Today, I live in Jacksonville, Florida with the inimitable Mrs. Smoke, the lovely Lisa Marie,  We are the servants of two Cocker Spaniels, Toby and the Notorious Z.O.E. who graciously allow us to live in their home.

– Rodney Lewis, President/CEO Complete360

I am a freelance writer and photographer providing copywriting, resume service, ghost writing, and other custom writing and photography needs.
