About Joseph Rooks

I work at USNC-Tech as their Senior Communications Specialist, overseeing branding, content strategy, public relations, social media, visual design, and anything else with a creative or storytelling aspect to it. I get to be involved in matters related to how we share our story with the world beyond our walls, including the general public, local and federal governments, organizations like NASA, and partners we work closely with. It's a dream job, really.

Since 2014, I've also operated Lexicontent, a content strategy consultancy that helps clients create content to support their goals, build stronger relationships with their customers, and make it easier to find their work. I'm not currently taking on new clients, but old clients are welcome to reach out about my current availability (or even just to catch up).

I’m also the host of Prolific, a collection of conversations with creative people about what compels them to make the things they do, and how they deal with fear, uncertainty, and doubt along the way.

Occasionally I'm invited to speak at places like Big Nerd Ranch and The Iron Yard to share my thoughts on creativity and entrepreneurship.

When I have free time, I love typing on my typewriter, drawing, cooking, taking absurdly long walks, and reading One Piece start to finish over and over again…  1,000+ chapters and still going strong.
