I am a freelance professional writer and entrepreneur born and bred in the United States of America. My business (The Gardener Group) provides high quality copy, content, and editing services to the general public. We also provide business consulting/coaching, market development, and brand management solutions to a variety of small and large businesses. Our consistent focus and our bottom line is on People, Planet, and Profit (in that order). Understanding that what we do impacts our environment and finding "simple sustainable solutions" to the problems we all face is what drives us. Our motto: Love Is Always The Answer. My professional history and experience is mostly in the areas of sales and marketing, but I've also performed many other fascinating functions throughout my career. I spent 10 years in professional real estate (including sales, investment, and brokerage) and have extensive experience in the hospitality industry as well. I spent a couple years pursuing micro-farming and organic food distribution as a career and have worked with a host of world class companies. These include Food and Thought, RE/MAX International, The Walt Disney Corporation, Bloomin' Brands, ArtVan Furniture, New Horizons Computer Learning Centers, and more. Personally, I have an affinity for travel and am a bit of a foodie. I have lived and worked in 8 states to date. My favorite, thus far, was Hawaii where I spent time as a professional fisherman and a surf instructor on the islands of Oahu and Kauai respectively. I hope to sail the world one day (which is one of the reasons I do what I do). I love good food, books, films and adventure. My writing is constantly being perfected and is a source of great joy for me. I recently decided to sharpen my pencil a bit more and re-enrolled at Grand Valley State University after nearly 2 decades in the business sector. There, I am on track to complete a bachelor's degree in Creative/Professional writing by April of 2014. The abundant resources available to me there are a real asset. I have been blessed to be professionally coached by some great men throughout the years: Brian Buffini, Paul Starner, Floyd Wickman, and Brian Kelly to name a few, but my greatest coaches have been my parents and my King: Jesus. I am a family man (father of 5) who likes to help people achieve their goals and I hope to leave this world better for having been in it. I'd like to help you if I can and will always do my best to serve you and treat you fairly. I am committed to excellence and driven to provide you with the best service available on the market today.

I worked for 23 years for a Canadian national law firm using MS Office for corporate, patents, and some litigation and immigration work. Skills include transcription, preparation of PowerPoint presentations and marketing materials for audience handouts, changes in SharePoint, Acrobat portfolios, Excel entries, entries into InterAction contact database, and online research (including locating corporate background details and company registrations, and finding email addresses for seminar invitations).
I love proofreading. I love taking a document and polishing it until it really sings. I have honed my skills through a lengthy career as a copy editor at newspapers across the country. But I don't get the opportunity to do as much proofing as I would like, so I've headed online to hang out my shingle. I'm not really particular about the subject of the text I'm proofing, but I feel I would be of extra value in the realm of biological sciences, given my educational background and my years spent as a freelance medical transcriptionist. I am happy to edit at whatever level you are looking for; I can make detailed stylistic suggestions, or just hunt down typos and errors in grammar. I think you'll be satisfied that whatever you have written will be in pristine condition once I am done looking at it.

For the past two years I have also written a number of short stories as a freelance writer for a gaming company in Florida. In the past seven years I have taught high school Physics (among other things) in both Texas and now Florida. Before that I designed video game with a focus on writing dialogue and storyline. Over the past ten years I have done a number of professional editing jobs that included everything from term papers, memos, and advertisements to full length novels. One thing that drives me as a writer is continual education to improve my writing skills. I have taken a number of writing classes through various media including classes on self-editing. I also maintain a blog that has an established viewership. My goal as a writer is to continue to publish novels, expanding that into a full company that includes multiple authors, video games, movies, and other forms of entertainment and informational media. In the short term, I would like to expand into the freelance market further to help financially facilitate the expansion of that company.
I shine at answering questions, solving problems, being responsive to people's needs, and paying attention to details. Making things run faster, smoother and more efficiently is important to me, and I try my utmost to maintain professionalism in all communication, including speaking to others by phone and email. It doesn't hurt that I am also a computer and Internet whiz, able to pick up almost any new tasks via the web and many software programs and mastering them quickly. My strongest trait in working with me is being able to work on my own, once I have learned what needs to be done. I recently began exploring work as a remote virtual assistant part-time after studying the clerical/secretarial trade in vocational school. Prior to that, I owned a fairly successful web development business. Before being self-employed, I served 12 years at different places in both the public and private sector performing clerical/administrative assistant work.
