Service Description

I am a writer by both temperament and training. My lifelong passion has always been creative writing, but the past several years I've also become a great fan of academic and creative nonfiction writing. I have won several awards for my writing on both the university and regional levels, and for multiple types of writing (creative, non-fiction, and academic).

I am also a skilled editor and proofreader. Where others consider it a chore to examine a piece of writing, I genuinely enjoy it. I have a great eye for detail that makes it easy for me to spot errors others might miss, and my writing background also allows me to suggest corrections for clarity and flow.

Unrelated to my writing skills (but perhaps indicative of my creativity in general), I am a self-taught Photoshop expert. Whether it's a minor touch-up or large-scale manipulation, I can give you the results you seek.
