nDash Writer Profile for Curt Smothers


Freelancer with cross-industry writing experience in education, technology, and social sciences.

About Me

Curt is an experienced, mature (and "retired but not tired") freelance writer living in beautiful Colorado. He served 25-years in U.S. Navy as a professional administrator on 5 Navy ships and at U.S. and overseas shore headquarters. He specialized in personnel and general military administration and technical writing.

His post-military career was as a vocational education specialist in a California community college. Curt also was an adjunct instructor in Business Department and taught PC operating systems and office software.

His latest focus has been as a freelancer where, during the past 20 years, he has written over 2,000 online pieces (white papers, presentation scripts, articles, blogs, personal statements, course outlines--you name it!). His clients have routinely complimented his work and left rave reviews.
