Overview

Experienced writer and editor, open to all opportunities: As an individual contractor, I will make your job my top priority, through professional, ongoing contact with you from start to finish.

I specialize in content creation as well as editing and marketing-focused projects. No project is "complete" to me until the client is 100 percent satisfied with my work. My writing is clean, clear and concise, yet still creative and catchy. I cover an array of topics with ease and adaptability.
