Capabilities: • I bring to the keyboard extensive experience as a working journalist, with more than a thousand published articles, on a wide array of subject matter, to my credit. If I am best known for anything it is for the cultural writing/reporting I do. I have written for both general interest and niche magazines/newspapers based in Omaha and in surrounding markets. I have also had work published in some national publications. I exemplify the strong work ethic for which Midwesterners are famous. The breadth and volume of my work, plus the longstanding relationships I have enjoyed with clients, speak to my being highly reliable and adaptable. • In addition to straight journalism, I also write public relations/marketing copy.

Testimonials: “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) “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 (Phantom Limbs of the Rollow Sisters) “Leo Adam Biga is an astute, conscientious journalist whose interviews and articles have been widely admired for their accuracy, generosity, depth, and perceptiveness. I would position him among the finest of our national reporters on the arts and culture.” Ron Hansen, novelist (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) “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 (White Man’s Grave and Brain Storm) “Leo is one of the best prepared and most thorough writers I’ve ever worked with. With painstaking detail he builds well-crafted, well-researched stories that are a pleasure to read. Leo is truly one of the finest wordsmiths around.” John Heaston, Publisher, The Reader, 2312 M St., Omaha, NE 68105 “Leo is a talented writer who handles each assignment with passion, style, and a commitment to quality.” Jeff Reinhardt, Editor, New Horizons, 4223 Center St., Omaha, NE 68105 “Leo is one of those inquisitive writers who knows just what probing questions to ask in order to get a fascinating story. He provides the Jewish Press with a behind-the-scenes look at people doing extraordinary things in their lives.” Carol Katzman, Former Editor, Jewish Press, 333 So. 132nd St., Omaha, NE 68154
