Feel free to browse examples of my professional work. I’m a versatile writer with experience in both print and web writing. I think it’s important today for writers to understand how to write for both. I’ve also written for both consumer and B2B audiences. Besides writing, I’m a hawk-eyed editor with a particular focus on attention to detail.
