    Graduate of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (BA, Theatre and Drama) and the Second City Training Center, Chicago. Have been acting professionally since college, which means I've also been a waiter, drama teacher, chauffeur, makeup artist, au pair, office temp, hotel concierge, and probably a few things I've blotted out. Like making violin cases for a week. I've also done improv and standup, been in commercials, done voice-overs, shown up in gorilla suits for singing telegrams, played in terrible rock bands, MC'd on a cruise ship, written a comic strip and a couple of (produced) short plays and a bunch of irate Letters to the Editor. My objective is, uhhh, to free the animal that lives on Donald Trump's head, and become queen of a small but powerful country.  less

    I specialize in short stories and novellas. I can take writing that is dull and lifeless, revive it and polish it into a sparkling gem. More that just checking spelling, punctuation and grammar, I will enhance your existing work by fleshing out the characters, plugging up the plot holes and make your dialogue come alive. This requires feedback and communication from my clients. I will send weekly updates with added comments and changes and questions via MS Words Review. My comments will be direct and involve humor and sometimes a bit of sarcasm - I try to keep it light and fun. For deep editing like this you need to distance yourself a bit and look at your work as a first-time reader. I am a creative comedic writer, but I am able to produce serious work if forced or paid to do so. I have written many short stories, produced plays, short film scripts and developed a theme park show. My work has been published on Smashwords.com, Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.com.

    Don’t let the title mislead you. As the Merchant of Words, I’m not related to the Merchant of Venice. To be honest, Shakespeare never appealed to me. Neither did academics. Thus, I just about managed to complete my schooling – or let’s just say that my teachers got fed up of me. After all, I was an immense strain on their conscience. It couldn’t have been easy deciding where I deserved fractional marks for an answer i.e. a 0.3 here or a 0.6 there etc., could it? Suffice it to say that my academic success in school resembled a village after a Mongol raid. A few years later, I began working as a software developer. In that time, I learnt that I could create software for an accounting system. Considering that all I knew about accounting was the definition of debit and credit, it was an educational achievement on the job. I also learned how to travel to various parts of the city. An online job that taught me several offline things! Later, I found myself applying for an executive position to answer e-mail queries sent by Amazon.com’s customers. However, the powers that were thought I was a glutton for punishment. Therefore, they made me a Quality Editor instead. I handled the responses for the escalation e-mail queues. I also trained and audited e-mail responses for 15 executives. A relocation ended this brief but enlightening dalliance. My next assignment was as a back office executive in insurance processing. I processed transactions related to insurance cover. In some time, my supervisors realised that my innocent smiles (certainly not my good looks!) lay behind all their troubles. So they gave me charge of a team, of a process and of a client relationship too. From indexing scanned images of insurance claims related post to recovering money from at-fault third parties, my team did it all. Sadly, they also did me in… I finally turned to becoming a freelance content developer: writing about things I hadn’t heard of or seen, for clients I hadn’t ever seen (or ever would, for that matter!) at places I didn’t even know existed. After such an extensive background, can I really write? Well, in over 16 years of experience that is the only thing I’ve done. See how: • As a software developer, I WROTE computer programs and manuals • As a quality editor, I WROTE e-mails and responses • As an executive in back office processing, I WROTE manuals, desktop procedures and white papers • As a team leader, I WROTE policies, manuals, emails, white papers etc. • As a content developer, I WRITE articles, blogs, website content, product descriptions etc. So what’s common across: softWare – auditOr – data-entRy – team leaDer and writing Stuff fulltime? The answer is simple: All of them deal in WORDS…that express what needs to be done in the best way possible…  less

    I am a multifaceted writer looking to channel my abilities into various written projects. I am the Head Writer and Editor-in-Chief at Off Track Planet, a web/print travel magazine I co-founded in 2009, the print version of which is currently available at Barnes & Nobel nationwide and selected web articles are available on Huffington Post. While my most recent work deals with travel and is written in an edgy and humorous tone, I worked in the legal field for five years and am capable of more serious, technical diction. I'm pretty creative and can tell a great fictional story as well. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in International Studies from the University of California, San Diego and currently reside in Brooklyn, New York.  less
