    United States - Last active: 04/12/2013 - Tests: 3

    Relationships. In my experience, successful and rewarding assignments are as much about relationships as they are about the work. Collaboration. Mutual discovery. Growth. When people come together to offer their expertise and passion toward a shared goal, amazing experiences are the result. I bring more than a decade of writing and editing experience to bear on my projects. My approach is honest and open. I'm efficient. Detail oriented. And intuitive with words in a way that began with a natural predilection but that has been refined through years of practical experience. An editor's "spider sense" honed by hoeing the rows time and again. I've edited technical manuals. Biographies. Web pages. Game content. Advertisements. I've written fiction. Web pages. Product catalogs. Direct mail. Informational articles. Let me know what you have in mind! More than pulling the essence of your objectives into scintillating, full-color fruition, we'll have a great time doing it.
