Stories. True and otherwise.

Who is this guy?

Charlie Keaton is the alter-ego of Denver-based writer/producer Dominic Testa, former Editorial + Brand Strategy Director for Modern in Denver magazine. That’s me, on the left.

I write stories, true and otherwise, for media and businesses. Brubaker Creative, my storytelling and strategic consulting firm, takes on select projects for clients with demonstrable social or community value. I also make videos and music.

In a previous life I was Director of Development for the USA Swimming Foundation, Executive Director of the education non-profit The Big Brain Club, and Communications Chair on an advisory board for the Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA). These days I try to sleep and travel a little more.

Published Writing

Heard about the Los Angeles artist using flyspeck to create high-end art? The Denver grad students giving shelter to survival skills instructors? The Olympic champion saving lives in inner cities? The world-class architecture of Mexico City? The history of the ampersand?

This curated selection of articles, profiles, and short fiction has all that and more.

Video and Music

Sights and sounds both creative and commercial, courtesy of a lifelong film nerd who grew up in a radio station.

Here’s a nice sample of videos, from startup branding to event promotion and beyond, alongside original sounds some even consider music. You be the judge.

Need some help?

I’m a creative professional with a business degree, management and non-profit experience, and a prior career in public relations. I help a small stable of clients through coaching, consulting, and content creation.

That includes guidance around issues of communication and strategy, plus original content for a variety of outlets.

Freelance articles, editing, video production, ghostwriting, and other services are considered on a case-by-case basis.
