Service Description

"Linear writing is better than circular!"

My writing style could be considered "Hunter S Thompson meets Hans Blix"

I produce copy for websites, articles, or other written documents; give website recommendations for better clarity in linking and content arrangement:
I would revise your English content to high standards of grammatical clarity, and provide suggestions that improve presentations.

Am able to review legal research documentation for increased impact, whether by proofreading a lawyer's brief, or in researching concepts vital to the positive outcomes in a case (speciality in trademark or copyright research).

Strong ability to reduce 'wordy' offerings to create more linear flow to the concepts asserted.

Rewriting; script reviews; editing and proofreading; development of web-content; some graphics (photoshop, Gimp); video editing consultation.
With twelve years of life in Switzerland (French-speaking Geneva region), my level of fluency is approximately 90-95percent.
