Service Description

I want to make sure you have a positive and close to perfect experience while I work to complete your freelance project. My most recent position was writing for a number of high-profile clients, including travel booking websites, villa rental companies, financial institutions and lifestyle magazines. I was completing upwards of 20 articles a day with ease, but wished to pursue a freelance career instead to focus more on my quality and perfecting my skills.

This will be the only full-time commitment I have, so no school or other job will get in the way of taking on your freelance project.

If you'd like to see some of my online content work, the following are a few examples of my published pieces used by a variety of clients:
