Service Description

I've spent the last nine years writing for private sector companies about telecommunications trends, delivering executive-level communications strategies, and creating messages that drive impactful, engaging, and compelling marketing communications for clients.

I have varied personal interests from politics to spirituality that enable me to write about almost any topic. I am known in my work for my excellent writing and project management skills, and my ability to rapidly ramp up in fields where I have no prior knowledge or experience.

I hold a B.A., M.A. and Ph.D. in Political Science (the latter from the University of Toronto), and an MBA from the University of Phoenix. I am published in Trade Politics: International, Domestic and Regional Perspectives , 2nd Ed. (Stephen McGuire & Brian Hocking, eds.), London: Routledge, 2004, in an article entitled, "New Issues, New Actors in EU Commercial Policy Making." You can still find a paper I wrote for the European Community Studies Association entitled "Balancing Trade and the Environment in the EU," at http://aei.pitt.edu/2554/ .

After receiving my Ph.D. I opted out of the academic world and chose a life in the private sector. I have written or co-authored reports for HP Telecom, Cisco Systems and Hughes Network Systems. I have been writing as a sub-contractor for IBM Global Business Services since 2002. For fun, I have also written newspaper articles for a special-interest news publication.
