Service Description

Let's talk for a minute about your project - you're busy and you need a pro who communicates well with you but who doesn't need hand-holding in order to create fresh, intelligent writing that 1) drives visitors to your site and 2) converts them from browsers to buyers of whatever you're selling. I create, consult, and manage dynamic, readable writing and media campaigns for busy people and innovative businesses.

After some analysis in the industry, I realized why I get repeat business. My customers were happy to tell me that I'm:

A good writer who can write clear and interesting copy, even when the subject matter is highly technical. Can't fake that.
A professional-quality researcher who (sometimes annoyingly) loves asking ¿why?¿ and ¿how?¿.
A nice and flexible person that you can get on the phone, Skype, or through email pretty quickly.
Good at sales and marketing ¿ what drives people¿or drives them away
Excellent at the nuances of affect, grammar, punctuation, format, medium, and language usage and how they affect your customers.
Humorous
Detail-driven and time-oriented.

**Work includes:
Technical, industrial, and medical manuals, research compilations and summaries, programming, articles, content management and campaigns, print and online collateral such as articles, blogs, and social media, academic papers (APA, MLA), corporate newsletters, resumes and cover letters, executive summaries, business letters, reports, presentations, writing prompts, procedural...
