    Over the last 10 years, I have worked as a copy editor, writer, and journalist for print publications, web magazines, social media, and have managed writing freelance writing communities for a major media company. I have a degree in English and rhetoric (with a focus on fiction writing), and I have experience writing about music, movies, and other arts, as well as experience writing about a variety of educational topics, including medicine, finance, home and garden, tech, food, and other how-to topics. My experience includes years of copy editing in high volumes, so you can expect a quick turnaround. I am fluent in AP Style, Chicago Manual of Style, and I've even created my own style guides for internal use. What makes my work stand out is that as a writer, editor, and manager of writing communities, I can provide realistic expectations for cost, TAT, and the final product you will receive. There are many people who can read quickly and type quickly, but I can promise meaningful content that is accurate, spelled correctly, and will not require you to re-edit.  less

I enjoy learning new things, researching new concepts, and explaining complicated topics. I write fast and learn even faster. I hate fluff and I'm allergic to SPAM. My focus is on readability and originality. I am also excellent at making a boring article exciting and writing sales-oriented writing. My niche is health writing. I have training as a health educator, college education in science and nutrition, and personal interest in alternative medicine and wellness. I also love technology with a focus on how technology affects society. In addition to writing, I have worked in technology sales, marketing, and customer service. I am very business oriented, and love working with small businesses. I am the owner of Freelance America, an Odesk agency specializing in top quality American talent. I am seeking paid writing opportunities to challenge my skills and compensate me appropriately. Credited work is preferred, but I will ghostwrite. Rate is dependent on project.  less
