Overview

Great writing, whether it is softly melodious or cutting-edge bold, simple or sophisticated, meant to sell your product or tug at the heartstrings, requires strong skills and the willingness to think outside of the box.

My work, published in TIME and elsewhere, spans politics, economy, healthcare, environment, relationships, arts, travel, food, wine,...

Service Description

Professional, experienced journalist and award-winning writer, I bring creative flair and compelling and engaging content to any writing project.

If you are looking for someone to hoof a horse for you, or solve a quantum physics equation, then you came to the wrong person. Sorry, I can't do either!

However, if you are looking for a top-notch writer and / or editor, someone who has the skill to put music into words and make them sing, I can definitely help.

Do you need killer articles, punchy press releases, or any other creative or promotional content? No problem. I have a B.A. degree in Journalism from NYU and extensive professional writing experience, including eight years with USA TODAY and 14 (currently) with TIME Magazine. I have a solid news and creative writing background. As an experienced journalist / writer, I have the skills and expertise to craft compelling, engaging, and easy to read articles, speeches, seminars and other writing projects that grip, grab and intrigue the reader.

Are you looking for a professional to restructure / polish / clean up your writing? If you want superb sentences and style, look no further because I will put your writing on its best behavior before letting it out the door. I have a good eye for grammar, structure, context, coherence, and overall flow. I can bring clarity, smoothness, depth, color, sparkle and creative flair to any style and tone of writing.

Or perhaps you need someone to ghostwrite your book? That...
