I normally charge more, but as I am new to Elance, and am trying to build a reputation from the ground up, my current rate is only $15 per hour.
I pride myself on my diligence and my work ethic. I will devote my full effort into your project, large or small. I produce consistently high-quality work that has been well-received by every client and employer for whom I have ever worked. I adapt my style and voice to the needs and parameters of your job, not your job to my voice. I am very open to feedback and criticism, and happy to make any changes a client requires.
I have been writing for as long as I can remember, and doing it professionally for about a decade. While working for the Governor of Colorado's office, I wrote scripts for speakers at the Governor's inauguration, wrote and edited press releases, and wrote the First Lady's speeches for her mental health initiative. For five years I lived in Japan, and wrote freelance for several English-language publications for the expatriate community, on topics ranging from sports and travel to intercultural understanding.
I have a Bachelor of Arts from Colorado State University with a double-major in history and creative writing, where I focused on both fiction and non-fiction writing. My work has been published in Creative Nonfiction, Turnrow, and The Greyrock Review.
If you would like any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me, and thank you for reading.
