Corey McComb is a writer based in San Diego, CA. After being kidnapped by the rock n’ roll circus at the age of 16, he was forced to strum his way across the country and back again. He then toiled as a peon in parking garages and seedy telemarketing pits until becoming an International Man of Mystery (classified). In search of free concert tickets, he moved on to music journalism and began a steamy love affair with the blank page.

Corey now helps people and companies validate ideas, tell their story, and launch products. His own writing focuses on the sweet spots in life where human connection, creativity, and personal growth intersect. Through blog posts, essays, and the occasional short story, Corey examines the human condition and new ways of thinking.

To keep up with Corey, subscribe to his newsletter where he sends out all his new writing. If you’d like to work with Corey, or have him speak at your event, use the contact form below.
