As seen on Western Journalism, Yahoo! Finance, and Huffington Post, among others. "The article is great - I’m constantly befuddled by your capacity to find the right historical reference for the right topic, alongside the plethora of minute details you manage to pour into a piece. How do you do that?" -- Elance client You need top-notch, compelling copy, and you need it yesterday. Every day you have to spend on coming up with content is lost revenue, and that's unacceptable.

You want results that make you look good, and that's my mission. You are passionate about your business, and I'm passionate about giving it a human voice that your current and future customers can relate to. I offer you the following services: - Website copy - Direct marketing communications - Article Writing - Ghostwriting I know how to get your audience's attention, focus on them, and stress the benefits of your offerings. I can set your business apart from your competition and call your audience to action, whether it be to purchase from you or simply seek more information. Your company will be in the front and center of your customers' minds. They'll be happy to be engaged with your organization because of its professional voice. You'll have a voice they can trust. You'll be a company your clients enjoy interacting with. And that will make you look good. Satisfaction guaranteed. If you aren't completely satisfied at the time of final delivery, I'll give you your money back. All of it. Why? Because I'm selfish. I want to keep clients. I am more interested in building relationships with quality clients than taking your money and running. Why do I bill higher? Because you get what you pay for. If you want cheap, slapdash work from someone who barely knows the language, don't take my bid. I am here to do quality work for quality clients. If you want cheap work, take the low bid. Quality relationships are worth more to both of us than the price of any single project, wouldn't you agree? It's always a risk to throw the dice on a stranger. However, you've read this far. You've probably looked at my portfolio and seen my test scores. I've engaged with you, a seasoned businessperson who is trying to make a critical business decision. Contact me and let's start talking about your project needs.
