About Me

I've been writing and editing for over the years, working for multiple media and covering a diverse range of industries. I've written a film scrips and news, academic political science articles and blog posts. If it involves the written word in the English language, I've probably produced it. I specialize in resenting complex concepts in clear, jargon-free English that is accessible to the intended audience.

In early 2018 I was working the editing side of the fence, managing a stable of freelancers producing content for a portfolio of 17 websites. I'm well aware of the pressures editors face and of what writers need to do to minimize those pressures. I'm accustomed to working remotely with minimal supervisions and to meeting both deadlines and expectations, no matter how specialized and arcane those expectations may be. I've worked with SEO specialists with varying approaches and I'm accustomed to adjusting content to conform to the evolving expectations of the SEO trade.

Most of the material I wrote prior to 2016 was for internal distribution to actual or potential clients of the firms I wrote for and is not available online. This material spans a range of industries and types: investment-focused newsletters and reports for both real estate and stock markets, brochures and other marketing materials for real estate projects, and other materials ranging from executive profiles to market studies to portions of SEC filings. Samples are available on request.   

I generally price work at roughly $.20/word, though that can vary depending on the complexity and research requirements of the piece in question. I have been known to provide introductory deals at a promotional rate, as I'm extremely confident in my ability to demonstrate why the asking price is justified.

I'm particularly interested in developing continuing business relationships with clients who have ongoing content production needs.
