I could tell you about the things I've written, but you can easily find those in my portfolio. Or I could tell you I'm an English-professor-turned-freelance-writer who decided I wanted to write more than just dry academic jargon for the rest of my life.

Service Description

You want a writer who can produce quality work without a lot of hand-holding or excuses. I work with you as much (or as minimally) as you need to provide ad copy, bios, articles, business letters, emails, proposals, plans and reports, white papers, case studies, image/identity pieces, direct response materials, brochures, newsletters, press releases, video scripts and more.

And, as of the moment I'm typing this, I have yet to miss an assignment deadline.
