The skill of writing is to create a context in which other people can think.
- Edwin Schlossberg

I am a professional freelance wordpainter specializing in non-fiction prose and poetry. I can help you articulate your concepts into living, breathing documents.

Whether you need an essay (opinion, humor, or how-to), newsletter production, technical writing, marketing collateral, persuasive letter, or a poem for that someone special, let me help you communicate your message to your desired audience.  I also am available for book collaboration and ghostwriting.

Today's world is deadline driven, and I am sensitive to time constraints.  In fact, I thrive under pressure.  Some of my best work has been achieved when faced with the looming threat of tight deadlines.  (Adrenaline is a powerful creative force!)  I have never missed a writing deadline!

Writing assignments and articles may be complemented by my photography.
