Professional/Personal Overview
  When you want to say something, sell something, convey something, or simply get your point across, I can help. I'm an experienced writer who drills down to the essence of the story, cuts the fat, and hits on message, on target, every time. Essays, articles, blog-posts, fact sheets, corporate communications, action plans, speeches, editorial letters -- I've done them all. I'm also a terrific editor, and freaky fast. I work with clients all over the world.

My experience includes everything from dreamy travel writing to corporate annual reports to fact sheets on products believed to cause anal leakage. (I try to forget that one.) I can crank out editorial letters and passionate rants on short notice.

I'm meticulous about things like fact-checking, accuracy, grammatically correct copy, and deadlines.
