Writing is my first love. As a writer/editor, I feel confident that I can produce quality work in all the areas I have selected here. I am a journalism graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I have seven years' experience in the field writing hard news and feature articles. My journalistic experience also covers copy editing and proofreading, gathering information, interviewing, and research. I consider myself an expert in all of these areas. I also have 23 graduate semester hours in English literature, and I am well read in the field. I have taught freshman and sophomore English in the classroom, and I tutored students in a community college lab for two years. I know the ins- and-outs of the language and love nothing more than applying them in a fine piece of writing.
