Service Description

My services focus on two creative fields: writing and layout design. I received a B.A. in Communications, Writing with a minor in Multimedia Design in 2009, and I've been working as a freelancer ever since.

I regularly perform and direct various creative tasks, including:

- content writing and ghostwriting for articles, books, novels, short stories, scripts, essays, and ad copy for various types of media (including: children?s books, medical research books, cookbooks, company adverts, etc.)
- proofreading, copy editing, and extensive rewriting for manuscripts
- final layout design for books, advertisements, presentations, etc.
- technical writing for company presentations and instructions
- development and implementation of new advertising platforms
- complete rebranding and package design
- logo and website design
- cartoons, illustrations and storyboarding for children's books and short films, etc.

If you have a need that falls under the umbrella of any of the above, I can probably do it! Let me know if you have any questions.

Also, if you require any type of writing, I would be more than happy to a free 400-600 sample of whatever work you need, or to show you any samples from my portfolio or past work to verify my abilities before we move ahead with a project.

My continued success working in the creative fields can be attributed to my ability to monitor a project from start to finish and know the step-by-step components needed to achieve the most polished...
