Professional Experience

As a professional writer and editor, I specialize in home and lifestyle topics. I also excel at turning complex, technical material into easy-to-understand language that is both informative and engaging. Part of the fun of freelancing is tackling new topics. In the past, I've written about or edited books, digital content, or articles on such diverse areas as koi ponds, a grilling cookbook, a white paper on painter certifications, and a business plan on a new social network. My rates are reasonable; I am a stickler when it comes to getting the facts right; and I hold deadlines sacred.
