Professional Writer & Editor

Writing and editing are about two specific skills, watching and listening, from which information is focused and transformed. Possessing exemplary interview skills has proved to be instrumental for distilling difficult concepts into plain language or transforming complex ideas and issues into engaging feature articles. As a versatile writer/researcher/editor with a clear, concise writing style and a sharp eye for detail, I also integrate best practices in public relations and corporate communications into my writing projects. This ensures compatibility with multiple platforms and media to help raise brand awareness, to engage a diverse group of stakeholders, and provide maximum value for your investment. As a testament to the success of this approach, my client writing has been published and distributed locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally including through Canadian Embassies and Consulates worldwide.
