I am a screenwriter with a script optioned and in pre-production. In the meantime I am an incredible editor. I will find all of your spelling and grammatical errors, but better yet, I will make your writing flow! I know how to make anything written read smoother, easier, and smarter.

My work experience ranges from acting professionally in national commercials, to selling in the green industry, to conducting workshops on the evolution of our monetary systems, to teaching yoga, to volunteering at elementary schools for Bookpals and Young...

Content Writing

Service Description

I can make any written text better. (I am not a translator! Send me your translated material to be corrected into perfect native English, but I keep getting offers to translate so I'd like to make that clear.)

I am a natural editor, I can make your writing correct, coherent, and read with a better flow. Given a writing assignment, I will complete it on time. It will be well written, engaging, smart, and easy to read.

I have a degree in Biology, and I am a fast learner, so I am a great choice for technical writing. I am a professional screenwriter, so I am great at inventing content. Trust me with your spelling and grammar mistakes, I will find them!

Two things: I do not take hourly jobs, I work on escrow jobs only. ALSO, if my bid is too high, write me back and tell me what you'd rather pay, and I might be able to submit another proposal more within your budget. Thank you!
