1. I make (writing) problems go away.
Tell me what you need written and why. I’ll go away and do it. It’s as simple as that. No hand-holding, expensive lunch or cubicle required. On or before the date we agreed upon, I’ll pop back up in your inbox with exactly what you asked for. Only better.
2. I have a journalism degree.
That degree was one great investment. Whether I’m writing, interviewing, researching or analyzing, I use what I learned at Ryerson University every single day. But my education didn’t stop there. I’ve developed professionally by conquering new markets, updating my skills, reading voraciously and nurturing my inner ‘artiste’ with writing workshops, retreats and classes.
3. I have more than 18 years of experience as a professional writer.
Writing is both my career and my calling. And it’s been putting food on my table for a long time. More importantly, there’s nothing I’d rather be doing. Whether you’re looking for a brain surgeon or a writer, that’s pretty important.
4. I’ve never missed a deadline. Ever.
Talent and skill mean nothing if you can’t get your work in on time. We’ve all been through some “times” in our lives and I’m no exception. But I don’t miss deadlines. If I take on a project, you can be sure I’ll see it through.
5. I work almost exclusively through word-of-mouth referrals.
The quality of my work means I enjoy plenty of repeat business and much-appreciated referrals for equally meaningful and challenging work.
Every single day is different.
I love it when I get a call or email from someone saying, “A colleague referred me to you. Can you write a series of articles to engage our employees/stakeholders?”
“We’re looking for someone to write lifestyle articles to provoke clicks on our site.”
“Can you interview the top five bartenders in the world?”
Can I? I’d love to.
The diversity in the work that I do means I bring a fresh perspective, boundless energy and genuine appreciation to every project I take on.
