Maybe you canĀ?t judge a book by its cover, but sometimes itĀ?s hard to recover from a bad first impression when your work isnĀ?t quite at its best.
Hi! With twenty years of professional publishing experience, including editorial, print production, digital production, and marketing, I offer freelance writing, editing, and consulting services to clients in academia, business, technology, and community organizations, as well as to individuals needing the services of a professional wordsmith.
The services I offer are intended to ensure that your work Ā? whether a manuscript, brochure, or web site Ā? is at its best and your voice is clearly heard.
As an author myself, I am deeply familiar with the challenges and rewards of writing and publishing your work and the questions authors face in navigating the rapid evolution of the current publishing environment. As your adviser, I promise to give you a thoughtful, honest, and constructive review of your work and plans for publication.

I have a Ph.D. in Sociology, and I enjoy the opportunity to keep my writing and research skills sharp by working with others on projects that can take advantage of my academic background. My concentrations are in qualitative research methods, social movements, and sociology of emotions; a recent lit-review project has also given me a broad background in Network theory. My passion is helping other conduct great research! Besides my academic training, my work history and general computer/video game geek-ery has resulted in me being well-versed in most common software applications and a smorgasbord of random skills (Google Adwords intergration, web development/design, UI principals, etc.). The way I usually put it is that no matter the setting, I'm the one everyone goes to with their computer problems. I also worked for a patent lawyer for a few years, so I'm pretty familiar with US patent law, particularly post-grant litigation (and I helped write reexam arguments).

I am a professionally minded individual who is interested in writing creatively, editing and any other type of writing or writing assistance that I think I can legitimately complete in a reasonable time frame. Please keep in mind that I will never agree to write something for you if I think I am not capable of delivering quality work. I have a positive attitude, good work ethic and a nothing's ever impossible mindset.

I have fun writing, but I don't just write for fun. As a news reporter, I've learn how to draw the audience in from the opening line, then compose a compelling story that fit within an allotted 2 or 3 minutes of airtime. Every detail is important. I have been called back into work to re-track a single incorrect word, whether for content or pronunciation. I've learned to be careful. Words are powerful, and I can weave them into the story you want to tell.
