Service Description

For more than 10 years now, I've considered myself to be a writer; one who has written in a variety of formats and on a wide range of topics. I think what helps me in much of my writing is knowing my audience and having a writing voice/style that's adaptable. That's both authoritative and friendly. That's easy and enjoyable to read. In addition, I also have 7+ years behind me as an editor for a search company and feel that this experience in particular has helped me tremendously, helping me to produce not only quality content, but relevant content. I know how important it is to grab a reader's attention and to hold it. I feel my writing does this. I hope you will too.
