Service Description

My time with the online magazine Juriscape honed my writing and editorial capabilities, allowing me to write, research, and brainstorm ideas on a wide range of topics and themes, including health care, entertainment, and technology. My weekly output of articles averaged between 10 and 15 and included profiles of industry leaders I conducted interviews with each week.

I also have substantial experience working in the marketing and advertising department of United Stationers Inc., a Fortune 500 company at which I helped write, edit, compile, and proof various catalogs and marketing materials produced by United. Many of my duties included product research, item verification, and vendor contact on a daily basis. A significant portion of my daily duties for both my marketing and journalistic work centers around internet research, a skill which I believe requires both technique and creativity, and of which I may rightly profess an advanced proficiency.
