Bio

If you’re reading this it’s likely you need a highly experienced writer who can make your content writing problems just go away. Keep reading.

 

You probably have a beautiful new website design that needs to be populated with elegantly functional content. Or you want a sales brochure that’s punchy, compelling, and a joy to read. Or you need several people interviewed and the results transformed into prose so fascinating it should be offered its own talk show.

 

Oh look, we’re already discussing my skills. Excellent.I’m the guy you call when your copy consists of a wad of dog-eared photocopies covered in Post-It notes and pink highlighter. On many a job I’ve hacked my way through thickets of waffle in search of the best way to express what the client needs to say – and I’ll do the same for you.

 

Or maybe you don’t have any copy at all so you need someone to download the information from your brain and make it work on the page. I can do that too.

 

How do I work? I start by listening, then I move on to thinking, and finally I write like there’s no tomorrow.

 

I’m a proofreader and an editor too. I destroy poor grammar, sloppy punctuation, and clumsy sentence construction with irrepressible fury. I shoot clichés on sight. Hackneyed phrases quake in fear at my name. I simply can’t stand bad writing. It’s a curse.

 

When you hire me you get someone who really cares about writing. You also get an experienced operator who brings strategic thinking to every job. And you get someone who won’t rest until he captures your tone, sense, style, and meaning just right.

 

In short, I’ll make your content writing problems just go away. Seriously.
