Service Description

I am a freelance writer, editor, and proofreader who specializes in celebrity profiles and trend pieces. I have also done multiple websites from scratch. However, I am open to any project where I can learn something new. I have been writing for years and have been published on both Associated Content as well as Constant Content. I am skilled in researching secondary and primary sources with and/or outside of the Internet, and am a hard worker dedicated to client satisfaction.

My services include copy editing, ghost writing, proofreading, web content, blogging, trend pieces, non-fiction rhetoric, magazine profiles, and memoirs. To do this I utilize an extensive host of resources such as Wordpress, Dreamweaver, social bookmarking technology (digg, de.li.cious, etc.), all applications within the Microsoft Office Suite as well as its counterpart Open Office. I am also familiar with a variety of house styles, the Chicago Manual of Style, and an assortment of bibliographical texts. As the sole laborer, I can assure a high quality product in a timely and efficient manner.
