Marcus Lyons, MFA, CP, CPRW

Since 1990, I have provided a long list of services to clients electronically as well as on-CMLyons PUBLICITY Photo 2017site across the U.S. and overseas. I have maintained a focus of diversity in learning skills and growing my experience, which helps to provide effective solutions for every need. Positions I’ve held include: Creative Director for nightclub chain overseas, documents and records specialist for an all natural/organic food processing plant, paralegal for national firms and boutique agencies, extensive government work for both State and Municipal offices — including the governor of Colorado and Denver Mayor.

Of course, after a couple decades of that, I was exhausted, and set about strategically planning my career going forward.

One of my proudest moments was when a client called me the “Swiss Army Knife” of the freelance world. It felt like I had finally achieved the level of professionalism I was aiming for. 

Now I’m able to work with confidence, knowing that every project and every client is getting my very best. The payoff for providing such high-level results is that word of mouth has been very kind in generating new clients every day.  That’s how our economy used to work.  I’m proud to be part of a growing renaissance of freelance professionals around the world. I’m also honored to be part of the following organizations:
