I have a BA in Environmental Studies with a Minor in Writing. I have carried out a multitude of research and writing projects that span many disciplines and writing styles (ie creative, scientific, technical, educational and persuasive). One research project in particular, spanned a year and resulted in a Conference Paper presentation and Scholarly Journal Article. Some of my writings can be seen below.

Otsego County Conservation Association (OCCA):
Chapter 6: Potential Environmental Impacts: I was subcontracted to comment on one of the NYS SGEIS chapters pertaining to the proposed Marcellus Shale project along the Southern Tier of NYS. After my proposal was accepted I spent nearly 40 hrs analyzing the chapter (300+ pgs) and also researching and commenting on it. The comments were then submitted, utilized and compiled in the OCCA’s complete proposal recommendation submission.
Odesk and Elance:
• Write 6 blog articles relating to ways individuals can live more sustainably.
• Write on behalf of an engineering firm discussing what they offer in terms of environmentally friendly property improvement services and why they are important.
I have a knack for utilizing the written word to inform, educate and attract many audiences. That being the case, I am offering my unique set of skills and services to help both individuals and organizations to advance their missions. I believe that I would be very useful in the creation of mailings, newsletters, marketing techniques, slogans, product and/or service descriptions or editing.
