We're Dave and Mel

We love words: in print, online, spoken and sung.

We’ve visited over 40 countries and have lived in many of them for a few months at a time. If we weren’t writers, we’d make a (terrible) living as competitive cribbage players.

David Harfield & Melanie Chenoweth - Pepperstorm

Who What Where Why?

Helping businesses of all sizes achieve their potential is what gets us up in the morning. (That and a crippling anxiety over which starting word to use in Wordle.)
That’s why we don’t settle into comfortable spaces and leap at the opportunity to explore new industries. We now know more about action sport videography, shipbroking and medical marijuana than we ever thought possible.

How we got here

An early career in travel journalism and copywriting gave Dave the inspiration to create an agency that could take on clients and team members from all over the world. 

This tribe of scribes would lend their expertise, personalities and skill sets to each account. We’d be agile enough to scale up to any requirement yet flexible enough not to lock anyone into a long-term contract.

Six years, dozens of new team members and countless espressos later, Pepperstorm has written millions of words for hundreds of clients and helped them achieve truly outstanding results.

And we’re still only just getting started.
