Service Description

I'm new to the Elance community but not to the world of communications. Up to this point I've been working mainly through my website, FreshPress Online. I have close to eight years of professional experience, including advising, and I'm eager to increase my workload. If I'm not ridiculously busy, I'm not happy.

I began my career as a writer and pride myself on the ability to see millions of possibilities within any given topic. I also believe in a well-rounded knowledgebase and was inspired to gain experience in public relations. Why? Well, what audience could you possibly know better than yourself?

When you work with me you can be confident that you'll get materials built by someone who knows what they're doing. The style you can expect is exactly what you need. I have experience and published works in everything from broadcast news to print, advertising to editorials and corporate publications to...
