Service Description

I hold a master's degree in philosophy and am currently working on my doctoral dissertation.

In addition to many years of formal philosophical training and experience writing academic prose, I have a background in information technology and direct customer service. I thus offer a rare combination of creative thinking,; well-honed reasoning, analytic and writing abilities; technical know-how; and excellent interpersonal skills.

I am also an award-winning teacher with a gift for communicating difficult concepts and ideas to non-specialists. The sensitivity to the point of view of the learner that I developed in the classroom informs much of my writing.

I offer help in developing your ideas at any or all stages from your dream to their fruition.
