Service Description

For the past 25 years I have been involved in commercial printing and graphic media production. During those years a staggering number of brochures, annual reports, books and promo pieces have crossed my desk and an equally distressing number of them, while beautifully designed, have been full of grammatical errors, misspellings and generally poor sentence structure that dilutes, distorts or muddles the message the customer has paid to convey. I have worked with a number of ad agencies, marketing departments and graphic designers and have acquired a discerning eye for what constitutes effective communication. I have years of experience in proofreading, copy editing, content writing, article production and product research. Clear sentence structure, proper grammar, spelling and word usage are areas in which I am particularly effective. From concept to completion or anywhere in between I can help you communicate clearly and effectively with your target audience.
In addition to my expertise in the graphic media industry, I have over 12 years experience in culinary arts as a chef/owner of three restaurants and have kept abreast with the evolution of that industry as well. I have worked on many cookbook and menu creation projects over the years and have a passion for cooking and an extensive knowledge of the California wine industry and its history .
