    It all started on a warm September day in 1999. Fresh out of college, a college classmate of mine was technical recruiting for CDI for IBM. My job was to dial up customers who were expecting a technician to come and fix their beloved computer. It didn't take long to get good at what I did, heck great! Within 90 days, I was the top performer on my team. Within another 90 days, I was team lead. It was easy. I was a problem solver, and on top of that, I had told I had a great voice. After I had been given the responsibility of managing three contracts at IBM, and there was no more room for me to grow, a college classmate of mine rang me up to tell me Earthlink was hiring for inside sales positions. I took to it like a fish to water. I love people. I love selling. I love talking. What more could I want? After finishing in the top 5% of solution consultants, and pulling down an Employee of the Month Award, I looked for greener pastures in outbound sales for high speed customers. My understanding of the customer was growing. My understanding of the client was growing. I found my niche. After the Earthlink layoff in March 2004, nine months of personal development landed me a lucrative position, afforded me by my Earthlink sales supervisor, at Secureworks. Although my stay was only five months, I learned more at this position, than in my 5 years in corporate America. Cold calling C-level, VP-level, and Director level clients from day one, over 4 separate verticals: banks, credit unions, utilities, and medical practices. This was the fast track on how to relate to people from all walks of life. This was the final piece in creating the professional voice actor you have before you today! These three positions are why I know how to turn your project into profit! And I am worth every red cent!  less

    Your customers are already looking for someone just like you - let them know they've arrived. Clear, crisp, and compelling. Writing, as it should be. I offer some of the very best in custom writing for your business. Most people don't even appreciate that they are reading well-crafted writing until they are finished. Quickly providing the solution they are looking for or pointing them in the right direction– that’s what writing for business is all about. The only desired outcome is providing a solution, whether it’s selling something a customer wants, or conveying information. The cool thing about writing for business is that the reader does most of the work. They are looking for something, all I do is give it to them. There’s a lot of science and psychology involved in writing for business and I’d like to think I am in an attending physician as a word doctor. Not an intern, not a resident, and certainly not the medical director. Make sure you have professionally written content for your business. You'll be glad you did. I am a professional and native speaker of American English with exceptional writing and editing skills. I hold a BS in Business-IT and I am a certified Microsoft Office Specialist. I pride myself on working quickly, accurately, and meeting deadlines. Additionally, I personally complete every project I accept – never outsourced. It’s a pride thing.  less
