Your rock-solid values reflect your vision and hard work. But these only carry you so far. You have to let people know who you are, where you are, and what you do. For that, you require copy that educates and informs. You also have to persuade prospects that you can satisfy their need. There's an old saying among copywriters: "people don't buy the drill, they buy the hole." Writing has been my life for more than 30 years. I've worked with B2B clients to create newsletters, white papers, case studies, emails, and more. I can satisfy your need. I invite you to use the 'HIRE ME' button to allow me to bid on your project.

Expérience

An experienced writer/editor who writes to inform, educate, and persuade. Though I now freelance for professional firms and small to mid-sized companies, I have 20+ years of experience writing for energy, petrochemical, and agricultural executives.

I also write annual reports, investor and customer slide presentations, trade press articles, speeches, news releases, and scripts.
