Resume/C.V.

I am a published travel writer with a M.A. in English Composition, specializing in writing services for travel and outdoor recreation businesses.

With more than 10 years of experience studying and instructing students in the finer points of academic research and writing, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to any project.

As your contractor, I promise quality work, efficient and timely communication, and a strict adherence to meeting your expectations and deadlines. My turn around rate is quick, but under special circumstances I can drop everything to complete your work under tight deadlines.

Writing is my passion and my profession, so I can promise that your writing project will be carefully crafted to create a message that is engaging, informative, and perfectly suited to meet your needs.

A picture might be worth a thousand words, but the right words could be priceless, especially when it comes to your business.
