MBA, Thinker, Writer, Editor

United States

I'm an early 30-something marketing professional/MBA by day, and an avid reader/writer/learner by night. I believe that bad writing has doomed great ideas to failure. I believe that too many people suffer from an inability to communicate effectively. I believe passionately in the value of the Oxford comma. Good grammar creates a great first impression. Great writing can take you almost anywhere you want to go. Let me make your message more clear and compelling!
