|Highlights:||My unique combination of more than 23 years of Information Technology experience and writing ability allow me to effectively create any type of writing: business writing, marketing/sales brochure copy, website content, customer testimonials, bios, white papers, technical documentation, press releases, technical articles, general interest articles, interviews, case studies, etc. I have written various customer testimonials for website clients, technical articles and technical sales documentation. During my years in IT, I have authored standard operating procedures, process and procedural documentation, requirements documents, project documentation, user/administrators guides, and training documentation.
I also write humorous stories about the human experience. Some of my creative writing articles have been licensed to website owners for their sites. Although I am skilled at business writing, creative writing is an outlet that continues to bring me joy!
My strengths are that I am able to write in almost any mode. I can write technical articles that speak to one audience, and write marketing communications that translate technical information to the common reader. My writing is concise and appropriate for the audience, as well as engaging.
|Work terms:||I prefer to work remotely and conduct business via the usual electronic communications methods (e.g. email, cell phone, Skype, Web Conferencing). I am available for periodic onsite visits if the client resides in the Hampton Roads, VA area.
I am generally available by electronic communication between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm. I am available for phone communication between the hours of 5 and 9 pm. Writing for a client, particularly new clients, is typically an iterative process. Therefore, I prefer that we schedule periodic interim reviews of draft material prior to me delivering the final product. Hopefully, if you are happy with my work and as I learn more about you or your company, the need decreases for interim reviews!
