I am a professional writer, editor, proofreader and artist that is currently self employed. Because I get to make my own schedule, I have the ability to make each client's project a priority and provide them with stellar turnaround times without sacrificing the quality of the work. In addition to having an academic background in Journalism (print, online, broadcast), I also have experience in SEO and SEM. This has given me the skills necessary to create online content that not only tailored for a company's audience, but increases their chances of visibility in online searches.
95% of my clients are repeat customers.
Additionally, I also own and operate my own home-based art business, DDM Creations, where I specialize in illustrating children's books, murals, business card design, web design, comic book/graphic novel art and product illustration. I am also an avid blogger with 100+ subscribers (amodelsdiary.blogspot.com).

My lifelong passion for words began in childhood, when I competed twice in the Scripps Howard National Spelling Bee. I wrote a column for my high school newspaper and studied Spanish and Portuguese at Stanford University. I then spent 13 years in the staffing industry, where I specialized in editing and customizing candidate resumes to target a wide range of positions, including Data Analytics, Executive Support, Dental Assisting, and Corporate Sales. I also wrote copy for print advertising, marketing materials, and training documents. During this period, I was hired to edit three book manuscripts: a novel, a memoir, and a practitioner's guide to a new psychotherapy tool--all of which were published. Later I worked at a major university, editing proposals and proofreading instructional materials.
Since July 2013 I have worked primarily as an independent writer, editor and proofreader of articles, training documents, white papers, newsletters and web site content.
