Service Description

I love to write--creative, narrative, factual, fun. I enjoy taking an idea and turning it in to a tangible, well-organized, thoughtful, inspirational piece. I like to work with others designing & developing writing projects of all types. I am a great editor/reviser as well. I also utilize my teaching skills to work with others on public speaking, live panel discussions, webinars and other speaking forums. I've worked with adults in small groups as well as individuals, preparing them as needed for various public speaking engagements.

I am developing my voiceover skills to provide services from audiobook reading to character voices. I am in the process of building my home recording studio and will be able to create and send quality recordings.

I believe that each assignment must be tailored to the person(s), the event, and the end product. I will work with you to understand your needs and individualize the job for you.
