Service Description

Over the past seven years, I have honed my skills as both a print and on-line writer and editor. I have a passion for writing that keeps me energized about each new project, and a work ethic that does not allow me to miss a guaranteed deadline.

At eHigherEducation, I wrote course content for the higher education market. While at McGraw-Hill, I was responsible for planning the scope of new Kindergarten through 6th Grade Social Studies and Reading programs and developing new technology products for this market.

As an educational writer and journalist, I offer innovative and timely information that prepares young people to meet the challenges of a changing world and sates the inquisitive nature of adults. I live and work in Hoboken, New Jersey, and I am always looking for my next challenge.



I provide customers with quality print and web copy on a wide array of topics. My specialties include lifestyle features, profiles, human interest pieces, autism, elementary education, and adult elearning. But, my areas of interest are far-reaching. Years of experience as a reporter and writer has made me a master at research and I am a quick study.

No matter what kind of copy you need, I will provide quality work at a competitive price. I look forward to forging many positive, collaborative relationships within the elance community. Contact me for your next project, and you will not be disappointed.
