I work with clients to find creative written solutions for their business. Another way to put it is I sharpen what a business has to say; I tauten out the slack, I bolt down the loose ends, I eliminate the spare parts. I'm a consultant, and part of the job is asking the right questions to coax out the crucial details. Have an idea for a book, or looking to have it perused by someone with an eye for detail?

First, thanks for reading my profile. There are over 135,000 writing and translation providers on Elance, and your e-mail is probably flooded with proposals. I propose you kick your feet up and relax. You've just reached the talent.
