My name is Dwight Hill — writer, musician, and general purveyor of creativity currently based in Richmond, VA. After four years studying photography, graphic design, and music at Hampton University, I returned to my home — the Washington, DC area — in 2008 and tried to make my way in the "normal" working world. Following a series of unceremonious lay-offs and dismissals, though, I came to the conclusion that the regular 9-5 wasn't for me, and set up shop as a musician and instructor. Enchanted by the allure of the stage, I quickly turned to performing — both solo and with groups like Throwdown Syndicate — never once looking back.
As I threw myself deeper into music, I also discovered my (at the time minor) talent for writing, a career I could practice anywhere at anytime. I've enjoyed this relative level of freedom ever since, writing and playing music whenever the opportunity to do so arises, and always looking to expand upon my skills and take my talents into unexplored arenas.
On the writing front, I've worked for a wide range of publications and businesses: as a contributor for sites like CBR, TechVoid, Dapper Confidential, and Revision Path; as a ghostwriter for tech company, healthcare, sales, and motorcycle blogs; and even right here on my own blog. You can get an idea of my writing style by checking out any of the above links, or viewing clips from my condensed portfolio.
As for music, I'm available for session work, can fill-in or accompany groups on live shows, and can also perform for weddings/events. I'm a skilled vocalist, and can also play the piano, guitar, bass, and drums. You can check a few of my performance demos on SoundCloud, and feel free to reach out if you like what you hear and want to collaborate on a project in the future.
Lastly, I take it that if you're here, that means you probably have some work that requires the touch of a skilled freelance writer or talented performer. Alternatively, you've merely stumbled across my site during some wild internet journey and just want to poke around the page for a little while to kill some time. Both are fine, and I trust you'll drop me a line if you have any additional questions about who I am and what I can do for you.
