Service Description

I specialize in preparing research reports, business plans, or other written product based on deep-dive economic, industry, and company research; financial modeling and forecasting; and prudent analysis of facts, trends, and anecdotal evidence. My talents also extend to crafting hard-hitting marketing messages based on solid understanding of a product or service; the target audience and buying preferences; and the elements that drive compelling digital and print marketing copy.

When you choose L.D. Writing & Consulting, you will enjoy:

1. Creative yet versatile writing style. Every project is different. Each idea or product calls for a special tone and approach. I like to get a feel for what I'm writing about and my audience, and then customize the "voice" in order to most effectively communicate the message.

2. Business expertise. I spent almost a decade in the investment business, studying and writing about freight transportation, beverages, tobacco, and restaurant companies. I offer expertise in these industries, as well as in corporate finance, economics, and investments.

3. Top-notch research. I am a researcher by nature. My career on Wall Street required extensive research into companies, industries, and economic trends. I spent time interviewing corporate managers, industry professionals, and consumers.
