Copywriting

I am trained in direct marketing and copywriting through the AWAI (American Writers & Artists, Inc.). I utilize the "tools of the trade" learned in this intensive training in all of my writing.

Note: I do not outsource any projects. From start to finish, you will work with me and me alone.

I use the following software programs and search engines on a regular basis:
Microsoft Word/Office, Copyscape, Abobe Photoshop,
Excel, WordPress, SketchUp, Ask.com, HowStuffWorks, Goggle, and Skype.
