Service Description

I am an individual willing to do a variety of jobs that involve writing and/or editing. I have a master's degree in humanities (a combination of English and history) and I have taught college courses in English composition and geography. I have spent most of my career as a cultural resource manager (archaeology and historic preservation), so most of my writing experience during the past decade has been in the production of "compliance" reports that document the results of archaeolgical surveys. Compliance reports generally require a combination of prose and technical writing, and always involve the creation of several maps and figures (using a variety of programs including Microsoft Office products, CorelDraw, Adobe Illustrator, and ArcGIS). I have an eye for detail, and I am rarely satisfied with my own work, so I spend as much time as I can to make it as high quality as possible.

On the more personal side, I am an expert word game player (especially Scrabble), and have been studying probability theory in order to improve my game. I also like to follow new advances in renewable energy technology. I love to collect and write critiques of music, mostly progressive rock.
