    Graduating from North Carolina State University with B.A. degrees in History and Anthropology significantly honed my abilities as a wordsmith, providing me with the instruments to write on any topic matter in a myriad of settings. This program of study taught me to manage my time effectively, organize my schedule cohesively and submit assignments expediently. A rigorous writing regimen trained me in the fine details of the English language, resulting in a deep understanding of editing for diction, grammar, spelling, subject / verb agreement, syntax and tone. In addition, I spent two years in Computer Science, so I am well versed in computer competency, including a proficiency with Wordpress, Microsoft Office Suite, XML, HTML, CSS, Visual Basic, Java, PHP and UNIX, among other aspects. This interweaving of skills dovetails nicely together to generate a unique approach to writing, whereas other applicants may predictably adopt a singular perspective. For example, all of my pieces are written with keyword density and SEO standards in mind to produce more page views. I am seeking an opportunity to write or edit content for a blog, e-book, project or website, in order to implement my adeptness as a researcher, contribute a bohemian-inspired commentary and supply potential employers with hand-crafted, specialized and adroitly fashioned texts meeting their specific requirements.  less

    Welcome to my page! The internet is a great source of marketing and sales. Websites run in our minds. They are an excellent way to conduct your business. Whether you are the largest company in the world or a self-employed business owner, you need a website to promote your business. You need a place in this international market. But, getting a place in this global world isn’t enough. You need something that can attract and convey your message to your readers, your customers, your followers and your audiences. This “something” is “WORDS”. Wondering why? Don’t go far, let’s start from here. Now, you are at my profile. You are reading these WORDS about me. These WORDS characterize me, my qualifications, my accolades, my style, my experience, my life, my personality, my business and everything you can think of about me. Why are you reading my page? Because, I convinced you, and how did I do that? These are my “WORDS”. The same strategy can be applied to you as well. Your website designer may create a superb design. However, he can’t give you readers, customers and audiences. You need something (WORDS) that can attract a flow of visitors to your website. So, you need the WORDS that can convey your thoughts and vision and sway visitors to stay at your website, and read and read and read until it ends. This will persuade them to examine your business, your vision, your purpose and your goal. Hence, you will get to your milestones and targets. To get these WORDS, you need a writer. The market is filled with writers who want your business, but it's hard to find the right combination of talent, determination, skills, experience and work ethics. Fortunately, all these adjectives are present in me. If you are looking for outstanding writing (web-content, articles, SEO optimized articles, technical writing, blogging, copywriting,product descriptions, product reviews etc.) without any grammatical glitches, you should choose me because I have an excellent set of credentials and skills. I have been in this business since 2003, and I’ve served many local and online writing agencies.  less
