Service Description

Clients have included many of the largest nonprofit organizations in the world, specializing in Christian cause-related marketing and the plight of both urban and rural poor.

Familiar with issues of criminal justice reform, inner-city rehabilitation, drug detox, and sustainable community development.

Content can be simple and straightforward, targeting those with limited language skills, or speaking to sophisticated audiences.

Since 1984, have never missed a deadline. Ever. Able to work under deadline pressures and tight time constraints.

New to Elance (this is the first time I've tried this) but not to satisfying clients.
