Service Description

I work independently and prefer it that way. My home office consists of a laptop, a printer and (more often than I'd like to admit) yoga pants. I'm a regular person with a family and financial obligations who enjoys taking on new projects.

I think everyone deserves to find a job that they truly love (like me), although I enjoy writing and being creative too much to consider it "work".

Using my natural and trained abilities, I'm on a quest to provide myself and my family with the best life possible... and if I help a few people achieve their own successes along the way, the more, the merrier.
