I am a creative non-fiction writer, editor and traveler with over 100 articles published and all seven continents firmly under my belt. I write with an engaging style and broad vocabulary borne of experience, having traveled and lived in more than 50 countries. Though traditionally focusing on travel writing and short fiction, I have had technical articles, press releases, and research reports published and have done some ghostwriting as well. My scrupulous attention to detail has allowed me the pleasure of proofreading and editing for a number of other writers over the years, while my malleable creativity puts me in a position to write in many styles and genres. The diversity of my abilities stems from my capacity to conduct intensive research in short periods of time and from my colorful background, including a stay at the South Pole and almost 10 cross-continental expeditions now. I love to write and research, and I would love to provide my services to you. Thank you for your interest and time.
