I'm retired from the Orange County Register newspaper in Southern California after a long career as a reporter/columnist/copy editor (12 years on the copy desk). My experience included music, entertainment, general news and features, crime and courts.

Service Description

I don't *quite* live at the computer, but it seems that way sometimes.

Therefore, I am constantly available via e-mail and chat, and I also have my trusty cell phone.

I'm not one of the big-money guys here at Elance, but I think that's a recommendation in itself. I prefer to devote my attention to one client at a time.
And my track record speaks volumes. I'm a veteran who has very broad experience in writing and editing and will guarantee you crisp, quality work and a personal touch. I consider the latter to be of utmost importance. You need to know that the work's being done, and done right.
