In my professional career as a national parks ranger and a state parks manager I've written and edited hundreds of research papers, news releases, newspaper and journal articles, grant applications, reports, and educational texts.

Excerpt from Master's thesis
Published in the Journal of Recreation and Leisure
I provide superior service in many types of writing and many fields of study. My expertise lies in the numerous topics I know best. Some of them include:
History (American, Research, Public, Oral, West)
Outdoors and Recreation (Hiking, Geocaching, Camping, Backpacking, ATV Riding, et. al.)
World War II
State and National Parks
For the past eighteen years I've been fortunate enough make a living working in and managing national and state parks, all of them with major historical and recreational components. It has also been my honor to serve a tour in the United States Air Force and participate in the Gulf War.
My work ethic is strong and all of my services are provided with promptness, professionalism, and respect for your needs. Providing the product that you want is my number one goal.
Flexibility is important and I look forward to working out solutions to any challenges that may arise.
