Bruce W.

Clear and memorable

United States - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 11

“Exceptional writing. Exceeded my expectations. Bruce wrote with a passion and style that really set a precedent for this project.” My passion for writing and editing has flourished throughout the past 30 years. Beyond working as a research scientist (ecology and fisheries management) and technical writer, I have spent much of my time editing and ghost writing an array of novels, non-fiction works, technical documents, EBooks, and journals; especially in-depth editing, sometimes for clients for whom English is a second language. Perhaps because of the fact I am a practicing Buddhist (Vipassana) and a pancreatic cancer survivor, I have also collaborated with many clients in writing spiritual works. I am a graduate of Dartmouth College, the University of Massachusetts and the University of Idaho, with degrees in psychology, zoology and fisheries biology. For most of my career I worked on restoring and enhancing salmon and steelhead populations in the Washington and Oregon.
