Service Description

I have written training manuals, programs of instruction, administrative texts, instruction manuals, plans and myriad scholarly works. I am comfortable with all aspects of writing and editing.

I have written numerous doctrinal manuals for the US Army and the US government. My work is routinely used to brief US Army General officers, Congressional staffers and stakeholders at the local, state, national and international levels. In addition, I have prepared training packages for courses in excess of 80 hours of direct contact instruction.

I am very comfortable writing executive summaries and "white" papers typically prepared with a very short deadline and no supervision, editorial input nor oversight.

I have written training manuals for both technical and intellectual pursuits.

With minimal input on a subject, I quickly analyze available information, develop an execution plan, provide a brief to the customer to ensure understanding and then develop the product well in advance of deadlines.

One of my talents is my exceptional research ability. I am familiar with numerous databases and research capabilities that assist me in preparing high quality and relevant products for my customers.
