I am a professional business person that is inspired by the needs, desires and visions of other people. A well rounded, and creative outlook on life has allowed me to be well-versed in a variety of subject matter, especially when the focus is to help and/or educate people.
Without question, I am a story teller who is capable of putting historical, technical or current thoughts and perspectives into words in a manner that people can understand.
I have a strong code of ethics yet am very open minded about modern day outlooks on life. Controversial, without being extreme subject matter is fine as I consider it a learning experience.
Once we discuss your needs and I begin writing, I will submit to you a portion of the initial writings to see if we are on the right track. This guarantees that we are both satisfied with the final project.
Communication via phone, Skype, Skype phone and e-mails are all acceptable. I am very punctual and when we set a time to talk, I will be there. When it comes to final editing, you will find that we will work together harmoniously and creatively on the phone. Compensation via SafePay is preferred.
I look forward to turning your vision into reality.
