Michael L.

Experienced writer and editor
   United States
  |   San Francisco, CA

Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $55

For the past 15 years, I've been lucky enough to be able to work in an industry where I have pursued my writing passion. I have extensive writing and editing experience--publishing pieces in periodicals, numerous presses, general reference encyclopedias/publications, and blogs (I managed and wrote for a corporate blog for more than a year). I've also overseen content development at a macro-level for projects ranging from health care to app creation. If you want high quality done quickly, you won't find a better match for your needs.
