    I write and edit non-fiction content, for both general and academic audiences, including articles, knowledge entries, book writing and editing, course outlines, and biographical profiles. I've written news articles on many topics and have learned there is no subject beyond my ability to research and understand it. Most recently the first of nine books on landmark Supreme Court cases was published, "The Supreme Court and Religion: An assessment and full detail on recent landmark cases" (2021, 375 pp.). For this book I wrote the Introduction, Conclusion and supporting essays about each case. As a former attorney, my legal education, experience, and research skills give me a unique perspective on many issues and the tools to bring that to bear. I've written or edited contracts, correspondence, proposals, and numerous court motions and briefs. I have also published numerous peer-reviewed academic pieces, including book reviews, encyclopedia entries, and journal articles. I've also written critical analyses of qualitative research; a "critical analysis" is a systematic process used to identify the strengths and weakness of a research article in order to assess the usefulness and validity of research findings. Every client I have worked with has praised my work, no one has rated me lower than 4.5 stars. Over 18 months I've worked with 7 clients on 11 jobs: 2 clients aborted the jobs early on; 1 hired me for one job & praised my work; 3 praised my work and hired me again; and 1 hired me & praised my work, but it was too recent to rehire me yet. That is a job success rate of 100%.

    I have a varied background in legal, real estate, construction and business development matters. This includes working in highly regulated industries, and I started several successful businesses as a minority partner in the last decade+. I also have a technical construction background and have been the project manager on a number of complex development and building projects in multiple states, and have in the past decade been a licensed GC and ICC-certified commercial plans examiner. I have expertise in real property title and zoning of all varieties, and real estate and corporate experience including development, leasing, water and mineral rights, corporate filings of every variety imaginable, and general business contracts. I can handle complicated projects at a high level, and manage ongoing projects such as corporate or real estate filings with the appropriate attention to detail while also being very fast. I can also help foreign persons or entities explore setting up companies in the US and in some cases can potentially act as a nominee director or officer. Finally, I can help as a paralegal or high-level background support with any number of litigation support projects be it one time projects or an ongoing case. Any projects that require professional-level polished writing (with or without accompanying research) are also in my wheelhouse. My undergraduate degree is in writing and I was an editor and writer for the college newspaper, and while in law school I was an articles editor of the Vanderbilt Law Review and my research paper was also selected for publication. In my professional career I have written numerous articles with a legal focus and also a number of white papers presented to local and state governments considering cannabis regulations and policies. I was the lead researcher and writer (on a volunteer basis) in a two-year effort successfully lobbying the State of Colorado to change its healthcare insurance "mandatory coverages" to include children with autism spectrum disorders. I have written pitch decks, marketing content and trade articles, process / SOP manuals, and complex regulatory applications that required up to 1,000 pages of content. On a brief personal note, I've been involved in various non-profits most of my adult life as a volunteer or board member or pro bono attorney or consultant, and generally they skew towards issues involving underprivileged kids or disabled kids. I was for a long-time the pro bono counsel and Vice-President, then later President, of the Autism Society of Colorado. I have been a youth mentor with various programs including Big Brothers & Big Sisters and similar organizations. I was a high-school dropout who became a first-generation college graduate, and have tried since to do what I can to lend a helping hand to kids who need a little support and guidance, and real-world examples, in moving past obstacles relating to childhood poverty.

    Following an education in Philosophy and English/Literature, I have put together a well-rounded life in real estate, business, creative writing and the legal profession. My education provided me with the tools to develop my natural talents to think thoroughly and write well. In the legal profession, knowing that the slightest nuance or the choice of just the right word can completely change an outcome, the ability to write and express yourself well is the key to success. During the last few decades I have researched and written documents for civil and criminal cases for presentation to various Federal & State Courts. My range of experience has been in real estate, civil, bankruptcy, personal injury, guardianship, probate, family and criminal issues. I have also researched and drafted Qui Tam and Bivens Complaints. Legal documents I have drafted have been presented in County, State, Federal, Bankruptcy, BAP and other factions of the legal system. The legal research tools that I have at my fingertips provide me with quick, and thorough, answers to legal issues. Additionally, I work in the creative writing and art fields. I have recently edited a series of 40 books for children and aided in the assembling the writing and artwork in those books for the publisher. I have edited writings from various authors (poets, short story writers, novelists and playwrights). My proofreading and editing work has also been used for white papers, Masters theses, business and legal papers. I work extremely well with deadlines and am happy to put in extra hours to complete projects in a timely manner for a successful conclusion.
