Service Description

I am an old-school newspaper guy and English geek.

Please don't let that fool you: I am thoroughly experienced with all forms of modern media - web sites, social media, audio and video production, and all the rest. But I take pride in continuing to pay strict attention to the importance of great, clear writing in the midst of all this new stuff.

My resume is included in my Elance portfolio, I'm open to just about any project, whether you just need a trusty, supportive coach or someone to do all the writing for you. (Except for schoolwork!. You kids need to write your own darn papers! I can and do HELP students regularly, though.)

Like most reporters, I take an interest in just about everything and am prepared to write knowledgeably on many topics, but these are some of the areas in which I tend to specialize: Christianity, family life, marriage, education, journalism, political news, history, social media, sports (especially tennis), autism, diabetes, health news, fitness, homeschooling, books, movies, music, and more.
