Hire a world-class writer! Connect to decades' worth of technology and marketing expertise. (Links to samples below.)

I have strong online experience, including SEO (with AltaVista). And I've written more than 20 non-fiction books, including Dummies books. Topics include the iPad, Facebook, and online marketing. My upcoming book is Green Computing for CRS Press.

I've worked for top companies in Silicon Valley and London, including AltaVista, Apple, Microsoft, HSBC Bank, and startups - most recently Salesforce CRM partner Marketo.

My sterling Elance track record includes ebook authoring and Web content for a leading software developer.

My educational background includes a BA from the University of San Francisco in 1992 and an MSc from the London School of Economics in 2007.

I'm currently based in Silicon Valley.

As a top writer and editor, with a strong business sense, I'll make you look good - on time and on budget.
