I'm an "out of the box" thinker and manager. When developing communcation pieces such as SEO articles; ad copy; visual communications (graphic design); sales letters and web sales pages; research articles or internal business communications I understand the importance of layout, demographics, targeting, and audience. A good communication piece will appeal to an 80 year-old grandmother, a middle aged male construction worker and a 13 year old teenager-all at the same time. I also understand that in media you have about 3-5 seconds to get your...

Service Description

My writing experience is extensive and varied. It includes almost 10 years working as a cover/feature story writer for a newspaper in my area; writer of corporate communications; copywriter for print, web and radio advertising clients; SEO/web article writer for private individuals and large companies. In addition, I am also a published book author.

Because I have a background in Real Estate, many of my clients are residential or commercial Real Estate professionals.

My work is always 100% original. I learned how to write by doing research and properly structuring my work. I have never been, nor will I ever be known for taking other's works and trying to spin it to make it original. Good writing always requires planning, thought, research and crafting.

I am always busy and work always shows up from various sources so I ask clients to be flexible within reason, but in most cases I can start a project for a client within a few days of being awarded the job.
