Service Description

I have had more than 10 years at senior management level in Wall Street, and re-invented myself by starting my own business to explore alternative healing modalities. I strongly believe that the key to a happier, more abundant and joyous life is through transforming inner attitudes.

More recently, I decided to return to an old love, which is writing ,and am enjoying every minute and every word. I understand big business and owner-managed firms and am equally comfortable writing articles on any aspect of global investing, legal matters, travel, spirituality or self help.

I have extensive experience with creative writing, ghostwriting SEO writing, blogging, rewriting, website content, and will even design and write copy for a deck of cards if you want me to. I rise up to any and every challenge and spurn boredom.
