Overview

I'm the person you can call when you're in a bind. When you need help getting that project finished in time and you don't know who to turn to.

I'm happy to do those menial jobs that some other freelancers think are beneath them -- like transcribing text from a muddy looking fax or proofreading brochures.

But I can also handle larger, more important jobs like editing reports and articles -- and quickly.

Service Description

With 10 years of newspaper experience -- copy editing and layout -- I understand what it means to work on deadline.

My first 2 years were spent at a medium-sized newspaper in Davenport, Iowa, and the last 8 were spent at a large newspaper in Chicago.

Although I held many different responsibilities over the years, my primary one was copy editing, That means I edited copy, laid it out on the page and proofread it. All under the pressure of daily deadlines.

With the newspaper industry in transition (some would say it's dying) I decided it was time to get out. For the last 3 years I've been working from home as a freelancer. I love the freedom it gives me and the variety of work I get to do.
