Overview

A colleague once described me as being sensitive and sensible at the same time, with the ability to use the left and the right brain together or independent of each other.

Aptly put, because I have an open and inquisitive mind, which sparks creativity; but I am also a sponge for details, which helps when I need to organize my thoughts rationally, logically - whenever reason must trump rhyme.

Service Description

Writing from scratch or rewriting but, hey, no humming a few bars for me - I need the full score. From short advertising copy to lengthier brochures and essays, I work best with a comprehensive brief, so I know what I'll be doing.

I can also write technical stuff, such as program and instruction manuals and handbooks, so long as they do not involve prerequisite jargon.

I am fluent in English and Pilipino (Tagalog), so editing and translating also come naturally to me.
