Service Description

In my 28-plus years in the working world, I've trodden a number of different occupational paths. During these journeys, I've done a lot of writing. Here's a sampling:

- Published my own online magazine
- Written ezine and print articles
- Created search-engine-friendly web site content
- Promoted exotic tours online
- Developed online sales letters
- Edited technical articles
- Written and promoted relocation guides
- Composed marketing presentations and designed brochures
- Authored formal and informal proposals
- Penned white papers and business assessments
- Produced training documentation and user guides

Most of this work has been as a freelancer with established publication companies, some of it with a 100,000-employee industrial corporation, the rest with mid-sized and small IT consulting companies.

I'm a writer now. But in the past I've been a buyer, a marketer, a salesman, a programmer, a business analyst, a business process engineer, a trainer, a documentation specialist, a project manager, a client manager, a proposal manager, a proposal writer, a profit center manager, and a practice manager. Not to mention cook and bottle-washer as the need arose.

One common characteristic amongst all this diversity is reliability. In all these years, I've been with only 3 companies (excluding my years as a freelancer). They counted on me, and I was always there for them. It'll be the same with you.

WHAT DIVERSITY CAN OFFER

Everyone takes some essence of their...
