Service Description

I'm a native English speaker and freelance writer, researcher, and editor. I have experience writing, researching, and editing academic articles, SEO content, blogs, travel articles, product and services reviews, creative essays, blog comments, and other web content.

As an attorney, I research, analyze, and write about complex legal issues on a daily basis. I am very comfortable writing and editing written works, whether it would be law-related or creative. My professional experience also indicates that I am a reliable, prompt, and effective communicator.

Regarding my travel writing experience, I am a regular contributor to whichfestival.com, a database of the world's festivals. I research and write articles (80-120 words) about festivals around the word. I usually write about 80 articles for them every month and have done so since April 2012. You can see me featured in their "writers" section!

I'm a regular contributor to MyVacationSource.com, a travel website devoted to providing top-notch destination information. You can see me featured in their "writers" section!

I'm a regular fact-checker for guidepal.com, a premier travel destination website based in Europe. I've fact-checked for them since June 2012, working on city guides for major destinations such as Malmo, Perth, Glasgow, Honolulu, and Berlin. Each guide has at least 80-120 articles which I must proofread, research, and fact check in a fast and accurate manner.

I'm an avid reviewer of products...
