The first 22 years of my variegated working life were spent as a journeyman carpenter, working through the Carpenters Union in California and Washinton State. Then I got into real estate. After working as a broker for 19 years, I decided to dip my foot into the shallow end of the freelance writer pool and discovered that I loved it! I have been writing in the deep end for over nine years now. Much of my work has been based on my real-life experience in construction and real estate. But I have expanded out into many more fields since then, writing articles and other content on such diverse topics as astronomy, cooking, public speaking, astrophysics, and social science.
The English language is a passion of mine. I am somewhat obsessive about grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, and logical thought flow. Also, I do not use AI, even though that is the big thing with professional writers nowadays. All of my content is 100% original and 100% mine. And I do not need to plagiarize. I am driven to produce the best possible product for my clients. I take pride in the fact that I can empathize with them and their concerns, and my writing is based on my desire to see them succeed in their endeavors. My clients' satisfaction with a job well done is my primary concern.
I was commissioned by an astrophysicist to write a paper providing an alternative viewpoint on the beginning of the universe from my own personal perspective.

This is the first six chapters of my Home Building Handbook, a commissioned work geared toward owners or owner/builders who need a set of guidelines on the home building process so as to be able to knowledgeably follow that process from beginning to end.
Content for a website created by a real estate broker to showcase his specialized field: Central and Northern California agricultural properties. The Carousel page is the list of captions for each of the images that were included on the landing page of the website. This and additional information was also included in printed tri-fold brochures and potential client letter templates which I also created.
These are excerpts from the transcript of a public discourse I gave on the marvels of creation.
These are the first six chapters in a 30,000-word website content project I did for an American steel building company that was expanding into Canada. The final project included live links to each chapter, table of contents, reference section, and image placeholders.
This is a series of real estate articles for a real estate agent who specializes in selling a "lifestyle" in Morro Bay, California. These articles were mailed out to targeted prospects and posted on his website. This really amped up his business and set him up as the expert on Morro Bay.
This is the first installment of a food blog that I created to put a different face on the culinary world. It was targeted at people who don't think they can cook. It contained recipes for simple dishes like bar food, breakfasts, beverages, and entrees that are accessible, both in terms of ingredients and simplicity.
