Service Description

I have earned a reputation as an astute and highly creative talent who can think outside the box to produce compelling copy or zoom in with tremendous focus to copyedit any type of written piece with precision and speed. My versatility is demonstrated through many years of experience in the following types of projects:

• Success Stories
• White Papers
• User Documentation Writing/Editing
• Web Site Content Development
• Newsletters
• Direct Mail Campaigns (print and e-mail)
• Brochures

“… Ian. Gets. It. Done. It's as simple as that. I've worked with well over 100 creatives - writers and designers and Ian stands among the top of the list. Rarely do I need multiple drafts from Ian because his first is typically ready for the prime time - clean, clear, and concise. I've worked with Ian on 150+ projects ranging from success stories, technical documentation, and white papers, and I plan on working with him on a 150 more! I highly recommend Ian - especially to any B2B organization with a technical orientation.” – Robert Voccola, Marketing Director, Public Engines
