Do you need a writer who can make your boring subject interesting? Almost anyone can just write words, however, it takes an experienced writer to understand exactly what is needed to pique the interest of your readers. I'm an experienced writer who has worked for some of the world's largest (and smallest) companies in a variety of areas. My diverse background includes: -- Entertainment (MGM, UA, Capitol Records, Disney) -- Advertising/Public Relations (Y&R, Wentworth Advertising) -- Legal (tax, personal injury, family law) -- Automotive (Toyota/Lexus, American Honda, Porsche, Kubota) -- Medical (Corning Nichols Institute) -- Education (Corinthian Schools) -- Technical (IBM, Acxiom) The type of writing I've done is as varied as the fields I've worked in and include (but not limited to) technical writing, blog posts, copywriting, content writing, presentations, resume writing, etc. If you have a project that demands a fast, proficient and creative writer for, then contact me to discuss your requirements. You'll discover that I'm easy to work with (no diva behavior here), will understand your needs and have a quick turn around time.
