    Visit my profile on Medium @stocktonjones for a few samples of my writing. INTRODUCTION I'm a talented and adaptable freelance writer, researcher, and editor with an unusual skill for strengthening arguments and ideas. That talent is supported by my academic credentials and extensive professional experience. As someone with a background in both science and law, I approach my writing and editing services with an analytical mindset, whether it's writing something from scratch, offering feedback on something you've already written, or researching a complex topic to explain it in simple terms. Working together, we can turn a rough draft or a good idea into an extraordinary piece of writing. BACKGROUND & QUALIFICATIONS I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry and a Master of Science degree in bioorganic and biomedical chemistry from Northern Arizona University, and a Juris Doctorate degree from the Northwestern School of Law at Lewis and Clark College. My scientific and technical research and writing skills were honed during my time as a research scientist working on small molecule analogs for bioactive proteins and peptides and perfected over the years in my professional career. My legal research and writing skills were taken to the next level in law school where I drafted papers and reviews on subjects including technology transfer and licensing, criminal law, and federal income tax law. My professional work puts to use my unique combination of scientific research, legal research, and both scientific and legal writing skills. Although the bulk of my work focuses on topics relating to biotechnology, chemistry, and chemical engineering, I have written extensively in many other technical areas including aerospace, semiconductors, electronics, and energy production and storage. In addition to being a skilled legal and technical writer, I am also the author of several published works of fiction. Creative writing became a passion and a hobby for me at a very early age, and it’s something that continues to bring me joy into adulthood. My work is primarily short fiction and has been published in a variety of academic and literary journals. SPECIALTIES I specialize in editing, proofreading, and ghost-writing term papers, theses, dissertations, book chapters, and journal articles. As a former instructor of undergraduate classes, I know the style and content your professors want to see. As a former student, I know that a well-written paper is not only important to earn a good grade in your class, but can also be a springboard to further your career in academia. A few other specialties include: - Writing application and cover letters to help make your college application shine, or to land the perfect fellowship or job - Summarizing highly complex and/or technical content to make it accessible to a general audience. If you need to explain Ph.D.-level subject matter to a five-year-old, I’m your guy. - Writing compelling and engaging copy, including landing pages, welcome emails, blog posts, product descriptions, e-mail marketing campaigns, and more - Crafting informative and authoritative whitepapers on technically complex topics - Conducting literature research related to chemistry and biotechnology and writing academic papers and articles - Conducting research on a wide range of legal topics and writing academic papers and articles - Technical writing which instructs and informs the reader, such as user manuals or how-to articles - Scientific and legal journalism
