Writer/editor with 19 years experience

United States - Portfolio: 10

You want your project to be exceptional. You don't want to just generate words; you want the best words, put together in the most authoritative and professional manner. You want to work with someone who can help you craft your ideas with the highest level of expertise and efficiency. If you're looking for cheap article spinning, search engine manipulation or content farming, I'm not the writer for you. But if you want the kind of substantive, engaging content that brings readers back to your site or publication, I deliver. My writing on the web has drawn millions of page views, and my articles remain vital over the long term. I am an enthusiastic, creative and careful editor and writer who is dedicated to making sure your project is as close to perfection as possible. I have extensive experience working with other writers, editors and clients to solve problems, from the broadest concepts to the smallest details. I get things done, and I make them sparkle.
