I'm English and have 27 years' writing and editing experience. Self-employed since 2001, I'm good at working at distance with clients and associates across borders, delivering successfully to tight deadlines. Since gaining a Master's degree from the London School of Economics in 1985, I've worked in the public and private sectors in the UK, Belgium and Italy. I've produced a wide range of articles, press releases, speeches, reports, funding applications, programme documents and political briefings. My CV and portfolio highlight my ability to tackle a range of subjects, such as education policy, employment law, golf course architecture, pesticides and water legislation. My client base reflects this versatility: e.g. The Salvation Army, The Professional Golfers' Associations of Europe and Lincolnshire County Council. A large proportion of my written work since 2001 has been competitive bid writing, successfully winning grants from the European Union and UK government. A testimonial from Steve Swan, Director of the UK charity, The Tomorrow's People Trust, states: "Steve has ... an ability to draft in a clear and concise manner ... (&) helped us to win grants over the years for our projects in London, Plymouth, Liverpool and Glasgow."

Over the past ten years I've worked across the country helping political candidates, non-profits, and corporate clients develop their methods of public outreach. I offer the entire package, from broad-stroke messaging strategy right down to e-mail advertising, social media, websites, and recruitment scripts. Now, you may be asking: "why should I hire a political consultant? I'm not a politician!" Well, that's fair. But the fact remains that politicians hire only the best when it comes to messaging. They use time-tested strategies to motivate their target audience, and employ experts to make sure they win. I don't write for myself. I write for my client and their audience. How do I do that? By listening, asking smart questions, and paying attention to the nuance of how my clients speak. You probably have an idea of what you want to say before you ever hire me. My job is to help you say it with confidence.
After spending four years in college and two years in the field I graduated with a degree in, Education and English Language Arts, I came to realize that my true passion lies in literature, more specifically writing. Words are very much one of the most powerful gifts man-kind could have given itself, not to mention it’s a gift that has the ability to transcend time, and my goal is to be part of that gift through the written word. In addition to writing my own short stories, essays and chapters, my professional experience as a part-time local editor and blogger has prepped me for wiring about topics that must be well researched and articulated. Each day I post a minimum of three blogs or articles regarding the Rivertowns area in Westchester, New York, which has allowed me to expand my ability to research, write titles, articles and communicate with many other professionals. My full-time job has also prepared me for the literary world. While I work for a commercial real estate brokerage, many of my daily tasks include drafting e-mail responses, composing leases, brokerage agreements and letters of intent among other correspondences. It has also allowed me to expand my written voice from informal fiction writing, to formal non-fiction or factual writing. Nothing can be too practiced, and I have the great hope that through free-lance experience I will be able to grow in even more vectors of writing.
