Service Description

During my career I have worked independently and also as part of larger writing teams.

CWS Consulting is the vehicle I have selected to pursue freelance opportunities.

I develop custom documentation, help, and training for corporate audiences. I am proficient in a number of development tools and writing for a wide array of audiences (I have success writing for warehouse, office, and sales groups).
