Service Description

Do you need words written for your project? Do these words need to be entertaining, illuminating, descriptive, or SEO-based? Does the whole idea of doing it yourself seem off-putting in this regard? If so--even if not so--I am your writer. My love and admiration for the practice of writing is paralleled only by your passion for doing whatever it is that doesn't allow you the time, patience, or skill to write what you need. While you're pursuing and expanding your business potential, I will write diligently to give your project a huge literary and SEO boost.

My work history is wide-ranging and professional with regards to writing, blogging, SEO, and link building. American English is my native tongue, and I studied history and creative writing at the University of Wisconsin for four years. I work fluently on Mac and PCs as a matter of childhood continuity, and I can easily navigate my way through GoogleDocs, Office, and a wide array of professional software suites like Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Reader, and Illustrator.

Writing allows me the space to be intensely creative and efficient while I achieve milestones and meet or beat deadlines. By hiring me to write quality content for your website, blog, or campaign, you are entering into a contract bound by strong work and my disciplined desire to continually exceed expectations.

Please feel free to check out my portfolio. You'll find that my work is engaging, informative, and entertaining to read, as it maintains...
