Service Description

I write about technology for the layman and non specialists in the fields of aviation, automobiles, renewable energy, energy efficiency, leisure boating, etc.
I write for professionals in the oil and gas upstream production sphere, whether on or offshore, or FPSOs.
By writing I mean:
Editing, proof reading or plain rewriting of client material.
Researching and producing articles to clients requirements.
Producing Powerpoint presentations and supporting literature as required.
I base my writing abilities on a comprehensive command of the use of English plus a vocabulary built up over many years; my technical authority comes from a comprehensive understanding of mid level physics, mathmatics, biology, and many years of experience in a technical environment, including several years of teaching the basics of oil production and processing.,
Despite my technical bias, I do have a more human side, and have written various fictional stories in different genres, as well as ghost writing for several authors over the years.
