Service Description

I am a sole proprietor, so your project will receive my personal attention from beginning to end. My background has prepared me for a wide variety of projects.

As a teacher, I understand the concept of nurturing a project through to its end. I have written courses and created classroom supplements for both adults and children.

As a business owner, I understand the concept of how to grow a successful business and the importance of systems and tools.

As a marketer, I am proficient at designing business cards, signs, postcards, flyers, brochures, rackcards, print advertisements, and more. I understand the importance of branding and continuity among your marketing pieces.

As a writer, I excel at creative writing, articles, press releases, website copy, ghostwriting, ad copy, blogging, and more.

The medium I typically use as an illustrator is pastel pencils. I think they are very effective for creating depth and soft edges, when needed. I typically draw in a fairly realistic style. Please see my portfolio for samples.

I have a great sense of humor and a heart for teaching. These qualities promote writing that is entertaining and instructive. If you are looking for someone who can get the job done well, on time, and with a dash of passion for the work, look no further.
