Resume/C.V.

My goal is to exceed your expectations. I write clear, engaging prose that is appropriate for your audience. I do not miss deadlines. No project is too big or too small.

I have extensive experience writing a wide variety of articles and creative non-fiction for national and regional magazines, newspapers and websites.

I am accustomed to both short-term deadlines and long-term project planning. I also have over 10 years of experience in editing and rewriting.
Service Description
My work has appeared in the National Wildlife Federation's ClimateEdu e-zine, Foreign Ground: Traveler's Tales, Personal Journaling, Pipes and Tobaccos Magazine, Chess Life, Edible Missoula, Montanan Magazine, Missoula Living, Outside Missoula, Camas: The Nature of the West, The Geneva Times, The Daily Times, Highland Echo, and on the web sites eHow and WildThoughts.

I am a recipient of the Edwin R. Hunter Award for Excellence in Research in English or American Literature and the Alexander English Prize.

My nature writing was nominated in 2004 for the Bodie McDowell Award, given out by the Outdoor Writers Association of America.
