    Great copy writing is a balancing act. On the one side you have boundless imagination and infinite possibilities - the need to capture the attention of an audience, tell a great story and create emotional investment in the product. On the other side are the functional requirements of the project - the structure needed to hit selling points, understand the market and ensure that the message is clear, concise and on brief. Creative writing is my great passion. I have a background in writing for film and comics, which allowed me develop a range of tones, voices and how to combine them in order to tell the best "story". Working for a production company as a writer, video editor and producer, has given me the advertising experience needed to create copy on brief. I've seen video and print campaigns from many different angles, which was crucial in helping me understand what is required in every part of the chain. Many writers only have experience from that point of view, which can be limiting. I have a lot of web experience and am currently focusing on brand identity, strategic writing, and web content.  less

    I am a writer who's got a proven track record for delivering. I am knowledgeable, thorough, and precise. I do meticulous research of the topics I am given, and even for the fiction that I write. I am, by nature, a detail-oriented person. My past history includes medical school and graduate-level research, as well as laboratory work and editing scientific papers. As for translating, I have lived in the Netherlands for seven years, and have taken and passed the NT2. My approach to translating is less than literal, but I've always felt that if you can discern that the document is a translation, then the translator has failed. I endeavor not to leave any awkward traces of Dutch.  less

    Someone wise once said, "a writer writes," and while that's true, a good writer can thoughtfully and accurately convey not only his own ideas, but the ideas of others as well. Over the last several years, I have written and edited material for a number of businesses and individual clients alike, from websites to educational developers to budding novelists and screenwriters. My strength as a freelancer stems from my accessibility, accuracy, and ability to understand each client’s individual needs. I have both independent and corporate experience in proofreading, copyediting, copywriting, narrative writing and editing, transcription, and more. As a lifelong student of literature in all forms, I specialize in proofreading, formatting, revisions and analyses of novels, screenplays, plays, and other narrative forms.  less
