I believe words are powerful. "For sale: baby shoes, never worn." The first time I read that, it took my breath away. Using only 6 words, Hemingway tells a much deeper, emotional story. Words do more than convey a message. They shape perception. Words soften hearts and change minds. That is why I do what I do. I get up in the morning because I believe I can influence the way your customers interact with your business. I want to do more than sell your products. I want to establish customer relationships based on a deep emotional connection and mutual understanding. Blogs take a business and make it human. I show customers the people behind your brand. Your passion. Your work. Blogs create a shared experience. And that is far more powerful than any 30-second spot on TV. What are you waiting for?

A Communications professional with over 7 years of experience in editing and producing creative copy for marketing communications such as campaign material and publicity, as well online/hardcopy guidance material for both educational purposes and for internal corporate processes.

New to oDesk! 15 years' experience as communications/PR professional with deep expertise in strategy, media relations, corporate communications and issues management for a diverse spectrum of brands including March of Dimes, Anheuser-Busch, Vicks, U.S. Fund for UNICEF, Segway, Cold-Eeze and Twentieth Century Fox Licensing and Merchandising.

I'm a professional multi-media journalist who can write, edit, research, produce, and design high-quality content on almost any topic and for any medium. From creating blog and social media posts to complete marketing communications plans, I have worked with clients including university programs, acupuncturists, chefs, commercial painters, e-commerce sites, news sites and forums, and more. I do not compromise my high ethical standards. Sorry, but I do not accept jobs that involve "ghostwriting" without credit, "spinning" and stealing others' copyrighted work, or other shady practices. What you get with me is a passionate, hard-working, detail-oriented, mass communications expert. What you do not get is someone who will rush the job or be a mindless "yes man" -- if I accept a job then I am committing to give you my best work effort, and that includes sometimes offering suggestions or advice -- getting you the final product you NEED, not just the one you think you want. I generally do not do Skype interviews or meetings for any projects paying less than $1,000. I am happy to answer any questions through ODesk or email, and I am happy to do a trial period for any ongoing positions. Sorry, but the reason I choose to do online freelancing is to make my own schedule and work in my pajamas; if you can't deal with that then best of luck finding someone who is a better fit for you.
