Behind every organization is a story about people. Let me tell the human story of your company or nonprofit through whatever platform you desire: Website content, blog post, press release, newsletter, brochure, article, white paper, script, book. I am skilled in each medium. I will get to the heart of the matter because of my interviewing and storytelling expertise.
My tagline of “I write stories about people, their passions and their magnificent obsessions” is more than a handle, it is what I do and deliver. Story after story, project after project. Long form or short form. Online or in print.
People and what makes them tick are always at the center of the stories I tell. Let me showcase your people. Each one of them. Their passion and personality, their dreams and ambitions, their achivements and awards, their lessons learned, their risks taken. Let me describe how their innovations and successes have moved the organization forward. I will illustrate their administrative, managerial, entrepreneurial, creative, collaborative and team leadership and team building skills. When I get through featuring them, your people will shine like the experts, professionals and rock stars they are. Most importantly, your organization’s story will be framed against the compelling personal profiles of your most important assets and resources – your people. Because, as you know, your organization is only as good as its people.
Let me bring to light everyone and everything that makes your organization special. It will be my privilege to help raise awareness and appreciation for all that your people do and for all that your organization does.
If you are looking for a new and traditional media campaign to highlight your organization or event, I can help with that, too. I bring years of experience as a media expert and liaison as well as thousands of followers across different social media platforms.
“I’ve long admired Leo Biga’s journalism and prose portraiture for its honesty, thoughtfulness, and accuracy. On a personal note, throughout many years of being interviewed, I find Mr. Biga’s articles about me to be the most complete and perceptive of any journalist’s anywhere. They ring true to me — even in critique — in a way that reveals the depth of his talent in observation, understanding, and expression.” –Alexander Payne, filmmaker (Citizen Ruth, Election, About Schmidt, Sideways, The Descendants, Nebraska)
“Leo Adam Biga portrays his subjects with both precision and generosity, practicing a literary journalism that is enlightening, honest, and immensely readable. His writing is eloquent and provocative, and quite often moving.” –Timothy Schaffert, novelist/educator (The Swan Gondola)

“Leo Biga personifies one of H.L. Mencken’s more memorable observations: ‘There are no dull subjects. There are only dull writers.’ Biga consistently teaches and delights, not with showy vocabulary or flashy syntax, but by placing his prodigious talents in the service of his subject and his readers.” –Richard Dooling, author/educator (White Man’s Grave and Brain Storm)

“I’ve been fond of Leo’s writing for years. Lucky enough to sit down with him a year or so ago, I got to meet the talented and versatile writer behind those well-chosen words. Recently, we worked together on a story about the Heartland Latino Leadership Conference. As a public relations professional, it was a pleasure to coordinate the article’s interviews with his prompt and thorough communication.”–Marjorie Maas, Director, Community Engagement at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska
“While I was at Opera Omaha, Leo wrote several features about the work the company was doing – both mainstage and community service. He listened well and we had a couple of very enjoyable conversations. The pieces, as published, were balanced and thorough – I was very happy to have him as a colleague.”–John Wehrle, Assistant Director of Development, Western Division
“Leo Biga is one of the most talented writers in Omaha. He has covered many of our community festivals and events for “The Reader” and I have always been impressed by his professionalism as well as his ability to write thorough, fair and most of all, interesting stories.
