As a freelance writer, my job is to entertain, educate, and pique the interest of readers, clients, and potential customers. I work hard to provide quality copy for every employer and won’t quit until I get it right. In the past, I’ve written for a variety of mediums from magazines and newspapers, to digital copy. Featured here are a few of my favorites.
