    Jim D.

    Freelance Writer

    United States - Portfolio: 3

    I am a patient and laid back former corporate engineering executive and Naval officer both of which I retired from so I could expand my horizons and do more of the things I enjoy. One of those things is writing which I do very well. The other is to learn new things through research and study. My writing style is generally conversational in tone with a soft, easy flow to it. My research style is exhaustive and well-founded. I find both styles to fit well with the work presented in this venue. I am also able to adapt to the more formal APA and Chicago style manuals to write highly effective technical and academic literature as it presents itself. Talk to me and you will see that I can give you the value-added products you need for your website, blog, business or hobby. I am not afraid to take on the difficult task. My rating reflects that. Hard jobs do not always come out the way it was envisioned as we learn while we do. But, I can guarantee you that we will learn together.
