"This creative really pays attention to your instructions, is a clear communicator, is grounded, stays in contact and is a very innovative thinker. Highly recommended!"

With a commitment to excellence and meticulous attention to detail, I produce highest quality writing and design for print and onscreen formats.

My expertise in science and health follows from a degree in Biology from Brown University. The national and international awards I've received for non-fiction, fiction, and poetry are proof of my skill in language arts.
