    Copy that sucks cash like a vacuum on steroids!

    Australia - Last active: 5 days ago - Portfolio: 7

    “For every dollar I spent on Chris I made back $3. That right there should tell you everything you need to know. His copy works. It gets sales. It makes you money. Chris also happens to be one of those writers that goes above and beyond just writing well. He responds to emails quickly, he was positive and upbeat even when I was feeling overwhelmed with my own project, and he made sure he was doing things right BEFORE he worked on stuff (which was a HUGE time and money saver). I would highly recommend Chris to anybody who needs words to help them make money. ” “One of the best outsource contractors I've ever dealt with on eLance or anywhere else. Highly recommend!” You’re here because you (or your client) want copy that makes your virtual cash register ring to the sweet chime of KA-CHIINNG!

    Good writing holds a lot of power. It affects people's emotions and views. It ties people together. Everything holds a story. Good writers are able to harness that story and share it with the world. I greatly believe in the power of all types of writing and strive to produce quality work. I earned bachelors degrees in both Biochemistry and English Writing. My education is a testament to my strong work ethic and efficiency. I have experience writing and editing scientific papers, short stories, poems, essays, and memoir. I also have experience editing technical reports and grants.
