Service Description

I've been writing online articles since 2005 and my work can be found on sites such as Livestrong, eHow, Examiner, How To Do Things, and LoveToKnow. I have also ghostwritten hundreds of blogs and online articles which appear under a variety of other names. I have a comprehensive knowledge of SEO techniques including the best use of meta tags, proper keyword density and how to seamlessly integrate keywords into text.

My technical background includes 4 years as a technician for Los Alamos National Laboratory and 3+ years as a LabVIEW programmer; I still do LabVIEW programming occasionally. I have written several software manuals, a host of help files, and co-authored technical papers on groundwater transport. I also have extensive personal experience with computers, which includes building computers from component parts, troubleshooting malware infections, and network maintenance.

Finally, I also have ten years of experience working in a corporate environment for medical insurance companies, including two years at Medicare. This gives me insight into business operations as well as the healthcare industry.

I bring my clients a broad range of experience, impeccable writing skills, and the flexibility and dedication necessary to get them the high-quality work they need in a timely manner.
