You need a confident consultant
who understands what you want
Someone who listens, asks questions and thinks critically. You need an advocate in your corner who works independently and suggests solutions if a project takes an unexpected turn. You need a detail-oriented word specialist who also grasps the big picture. You need a pro who understands deadlines and word counts.

How I work
My approach to writing and editing is based on the generalist orientation of many journalists. I’m accustomed to asking questions and learning on the fly. For example, when I started as editor of Inside Homeland Security, I had little knowledge of emergency management, terrorism, and critical infrastructure. Yet within a month on the job, I acquired a basic knowledge of the field. I could speak the language of the readers and contributors who contacted me every day. For a supporting view, see Testimonial.
