Overview

Determination is the key. Over the years, I've rounded out a great many diverse talents, but the root of it all is a firm sense of getting the job done.

What I'm bringing to the table is a wide perspective. From formal education in engineering, programming and the written word, I've also spread myself to teaching not just in North America, but also abroad. Now, after all of my travels and all of my years in school, it's time to bring all of those years together and get down to work.

Service Description

Writing. Bashing words together like boards on a housing project. That's what I can offer you.

For years, I followed an extremely technical career path before settling on a career as a writer. Academically, I spent four years working on mathematics, science and all things technical. After graduating, I shifted gears and spent two years working on an English degree focused primarily on creative writing. Then, for some strange reason, I thought I wanted to be a teacher.

Now, I'm thoroughly aware that I was wrong, and no, I don't want to be a teacher--but that doesn't make me a bad one, just a little jaded. I'm an incredibly good cook, too, but it's not something I want to rely on for a pay check.

Anyway, so I'm a teacher, and a good one at that. What that means for you is that I've developed an educational style of thinking, speaking and writing that people enjoy to read and can easily absorb.

Basically, I already come with a wide array of talents and interests from writing to photography to graphic and web design and all the way over to cooking and athletics. Whether you need a sports writer, a tech blogger, a bit of editing or just a contracted technical writer: I can provide for you.
