About

The right writer, editor or photographer for your project.

I'm a native US English author and editor with over 25 years of experience in writing for print as well as for electronic publication. My work has been published in national trade magazines as well as internationally. If you need powerful, expertly written content, let my experience and creativity work for you.

I am also a photographer/photo editor, with extensive experience in film and digital photography as well as darkroom and editing experience. I'm proficient with both Photoshop and Lightroom.

Prior to taking on writing and editing full-time, I ran a successful web developing, programming and hosting business. My proficiencies in a number of web technologies, programming languages, content management systems and database integration are an important asset when it comes to writing for the web.

All in all, I've been self-employed for over 30 years, with a strong background in industrial and technological trades. As you might have guessed from this bio, I'm no spring chicken. That means you can count on a mature, responsible attitude when we work together.

Work Terms

I prefer to work through Guru.com's escrow system for initial projects with new clients. After a working relationship is established, other methods are fine.

I prefer email or the Guru message board for communication, as these methods provide both parties with documentation to refer to. I'm happy to introduce myself via Skype for those who like to make sure they're talking with a real person.

For extensive projects, I may require a deposit. This is always refundable if the finished project doesn't meet the client's expectations.
