and training manuals. My work history has allowed me to write on a wide variety of topics, including technology, health and fitness, art and photography and travel. I have worked as a full-time copywriter for internet content, as well as on-air scripts. I have also worked as a copyeditor, proofreading and finessing other peoples copy and correcting ESL content. I am extremely detailed oriented and will ensure all work is submitted error-free and grammatically correct. If desired, I will include keywords for SEO and online marketing. I can adjust my writing style when necessary and provide work that has flair and is catchy and original. Or, I can produce business writing that is concise and to the point. I will make sure each piece is specifically targeted to your audience.

While working in technology, I was responsible for writing dozens of training manuals and quick start guides, primarily for video streaming technology, and ad networks. I was responsible for writing RFP’s, sales letters and case studies. My experience in creative writing has been very broad. I have been a contributing writer for the national photography publication Digital Photo Pro since 2007. I have also contributed articles to travel and sailing magazines. My online content has ranged from diet and exercise guides to choosing a reputable charity. My variety of interests has qualified me to write on a wide range of subjects with confidence and expertise. I am a certified yoga instructor and a competitive sailor and snowboarder. I achieved my BA in screenwriting and cinematography in 2004. After graduation, I went back to school and studied at the California School of Culinary Arts, Le Cordon Bleu. I worked for a year in the restaurant business, under the direction of Wolfgang Puck. In 2006 I got my network certification. I worked in technology for six years, where I was able to gain all of my technical writing experience. Over the years, I have worked in promotions, branding, product placements, mobile and digital media.

I recently took a bold step in my career. After years of working for an employer, I decided to strike out on my own. I’ve officially launched my full-time, freelance copywriting business, specializing in B2B marketing and direct sales. I am very excited, since this is something I have always wanted to do. But big career changes can be very scary and come with a certain amount of anxiety. Thankfully, after only a few short months, I couldn’t be happier with the direction my new career is headed. The companies I had formally worked for have been extremely supportive, and I’ve already added some very savvy new companies to my client list as well. I look forward to continuing those relationships down the line. However, as I expand my growing business, my primary focus is on my future customers. I hope to foster relationships between like-minded small business owners and entrepreneurs, who could use the service of someone who knows the value of a sale. I tailor every word to ultimately drive sales, by capturing the reader’s attention and inspiring them to take action immediately. But not all writing is directly designed to increase sales. I also write articles and blogs that are designed to establish and enforce branding. Some companies use blogs, social media and articles to establish themselves as leaders in their respective fields. By educating and entertaining their target audience, they develop a strong following of readers and prospective clients. My articles help companies position themselves as a knowledgeable authority on their subject, so that when the time is right, people will know where to look when they need more information on a specific subject. I can help you in this same way. Whether you require a direct sales letter, a social media campaign or article or blog, I can help attract the customers you need.

I’m more than just a writer. I can help you develop attractive and effective marketing campaign, directly tailored to your target audience. I look forward to helping you reach a wider audience through quality writing.

    Hey there! Thanks so much for taking the time to review it. I will definitely take those points into consideration. The font looks fine on my computer. I guess that’s why there is always a beta stage 😉 I was hoping to have it up, with all the wrinkles ironed out, before I had a bunch of followers, so your timing is perfect! 😉

    hugs and kisses!
