Service Description

I'm an outdoors enthusiast with a reading habit. I love to read just about anything I can get my hands on--fiction, nonfiction, magazines about all subjects, cereal boxes...

My passion for all things outdoors takes me to the mountains just about every weekend for whatever is in season, be it mountain biking and hiking or cross country skiing or whitewater kayaking. I have an adventurous spirit that carries over into my writing--I'm always willing to research a new subject to provide you with the best possible content for your website, magazine, newspaper, etc.

Tell me what you want done and I'll do my best to deliver. Many of my projects have been outside my "specialty" subjects and I take pride in being able to research and write content that exceeds your expectations.

My respect for deadlines directs me to exaggerate the estimated due date when I place a bid. I nearly always submit work before the due date, in part so that you have time to review the material and request an edit or rewrite if you see the need (no one ever has).

I work alone and never contract out your work to other parties. I don't use copyscape or other plagiarism detecting software because everything I write is original and I don't need to worry about my work passing those tests.

My work ethic comes from my dairy farm upbringing. I believe in giving you my best work every time, on time.
