Service Description

My number one attribute is reliability. You get what you pay for on time and with a no fuss approach. I will respond promptly to all email correspondence within a 24 hour period. I believe in providing a quality product first time. I believe my writing will promote your business in the best light possible.

I make an effort to understand the ethos and culture of your organisation, which enables me to write effectively to meet your needs. I also quickly grasp the parameters of any project and am able to combine the research content given into concise, interesting and readable copy.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Intercultural Studies and write extensively for the Not for Profit sector. I am especially experienced writing about the issues faced by third world communities. I have also travelled extensively and have written travel pieces for various websites. Brochures and product descriptions are further strings to my bow in the commercial copywriting arena.

I look forward to providing you with that timely piece of writing that exactly fits your needs.
