Corey McComb is a writer and marketing strategist living in San Diego, CA. At the age of 16, he was kidnapped by the rock n’ roll circus and forced to strum his way around the country. He then toiled as a peon in parking garages and seedy telemarketing pits until becoming an international man of mystery (classified). A lack of musical talent beyond three chords mixed with a proclivity for adjectives made him an obvious choice for music journalism, which soon led to a steamy love affair with the blank page.

Corey now helps people and companies tell their story in new ways, writes the Creativity Equals Freedom, and lives by the beach with his fiancé, Ava and their cocker spaniel, Penny. His writing focuses on the sweet spots in life where contrarian ideas, personal development, and creativity intersect. His work has been featured on Thrive Global, Thought Catalog, Wanderlust, and many others.

Keep in touch with Corey through his weekly newsletter, The Temperature Check, where he shares new writing, interesting links, book recommendations, and quotes from people smarter than him.
