Service Description

I can provide services for ghostwriting, article writing, blogging, web content and copywriting. My background allows me to easily work in either an informal, conversational style, or a highly formal, professional tone.
I specialize in editing of web or print content. I can edit informal content aimed at the general public, or highly specialized technical content.

Education:
B.S., Biology, University of Colorado at Denver, 2004

With an education and background in both Science and English, I understand that both the research and communication of facts are of equal importance. My background as a laboratory researcher has prepared be to be accurate, informed, and precise in every detail. My love of English literature and photography helps me to appreciate the value of communication media, and the importance of emotional impact in communication. Writing and photography allow me to blend all of these attributes.

I have written for clients who are everything from surgeons to auto body repair shops. My clients praise my ability to run with a project with minimal supervision and turn in accurate and engaging content.
