Service Description

Got a concept for an article but don't know how to write it with impact? I can help. Need research help for a thorny issue? I can help. Need a writer for stories about political or cultural issues? Editorials and commentaries? I can help. Need to simplify training or technical materials? I can help you with that. Whatever your immediate writing needs, whether it be a term-paper or technical manual, contact me first.
I am an experienced nonfiction writer, former journalist and Sales manager, with years of experience training people in skills and concepts they want to learn. I have trained sales people to improve their skills; ordinary people to use computers; mentally-challenged individuals to draw, paint, read and get employed. I inspire people to pursue their dreams and change their lives for the better. If developing others is your passion or interest and you need help to simplify your ideas to make them more readily understood by your target audience, then contact me. Together, we can influence the world, one person at a time.
