I specialise in Article and Content Writing on The Alternative energy Industry but have a wide range of interests and can easily turn my pen to any subject required. Words flow easily for me and I can turn any boring copy into an emotive and engaging article. My main area of work is in the sustainable energy industry writing articles on Energy Efficiency and up to date information on renewable technologies.I have several ongoing blogs that are updated on a daily basis, some for profit and some for pleasure. Seven years of my life was spent as a chef so I have an in depth knowledge of food and the catering industry. I left catering to set up on my own as a freelance article writer and utilise my talent for the written word to generate a new income stream. I have a high level of attention to detail and always research any topic thoroughly before my fingers begin to type. I can quickly determine the appropriate style for a piece and gear it towards the target audience. My experience in Affiliate Marketing over the last few years has honed my skills when it comes to writing short snappy articles to be directed at a target audience with the ultimate aim in mind of generating a sale or lead for the company I am affiliated with. Overall I am a well rounded individual with a solid skill base, that is comfortable working to deadlines. Furthermore, I have a broad knowledge of a variety of subjects either through my previous work, current engagements or from my insatiable passion for knowledge and my love of the written word.
