Resumes are…well, boring! They don’t really tell you about me and
what makes me tick. Instead, I’d rather tell you about me and about
how I became a freelance writer and web designer.
I enjoy people and I love to write. In a nutshell, that should
tell you a whole lot about me and my personality. Lucky for me, the
combination of the two has given me an edge in the industry. Why?
First, I’m outgoing enough to ask all kinds of questions in order to
find out what you want and what will best suit your needs. Second, I
love to learn which means that I am lucky enough to never get bored
doing my job!
Where most people cringe inwardly at the thought of a having to
write a report or create technical content, I excel. You see, I’ve
been writing and creating content since I could wield a pencil. In
fact, I believe that any piece of work is worthy of perfection.
While I have published numerous articles, written a book and
designed several websites, my official freelance career was launched
in a rather odd way. I say that because a ‘freelancer’ is somebody
who is self-employed and gets paid for their work. But much like how
everything else has occurred in my life, my ‘freelance’ career
started by doing a large amount of non-profit work for free. They
say do what you love and in my case this has ultimately led to
project after project based on one simple advertising feat –
Today I happily manage a variety of websites, regularly edit
numerous projects, write articles, play ghostwriter and provide
consulting services. I live in the Pacific Northwest, have a crazy
busy life, and still make time to volunteer hundreds of hours to a
local non-profit equine organization, to ride my own rescued
horse, Maddy, and of course hike as much as possible with my pup.
I consider myself to be a truly versatile writer. I have always
gone the extra mile when it comes to creating the perfect literary
masterpiece and my enthusiasm in doing so can be quite contagious!
