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 grew up playing music and in the mid 2000's got into audio production and live recording. I took classes at Studio West and interned there for two years. I can do many different styles of voices and am certified with Avid Pro Tools software. I've done live tracking and studio tracking for voice overs, bands, and solo artists.
I currently assist my friend who records live artist sessions at a local radio station called 91.X and have had the good fortune to work with some artists like The Toadies, Twin Shadows, Band of Skulls, and Conway.
I've also video recorded several live shows for a few local bands.
I'm an easygoing but professional guy who loves to meet and work with other people.

I am trained in all tasks related to words including but not limited to article writing, blogging, research, and editing. My knowledge has been fostered by my bachelor's studies in English literature and composition as well as my master's studies in library and information science with an emphasis on academic research.
I am a Midwest native transplanted in the wild of Southern California, mama bear to one blonde firecracker and three mutts, photographer by trade and writer by nature. I'm enamored with whimsy, public libraries, the Chicago Cubs, Netflix, tea, and the sound of a jet engine from inside the airplane.
I have been writing for 8 years and have been published in a menagerie of publications including but not limited to Persephone Magazine, Feminsprire, GenTwenty, and Sound on Sight.
When I'm not writing I can be found behind my camera at http://happinessisphotography.com/ or hunched over the drawing board for my literary magazine, Chicken Scratch Lit.
