Experienced Freelance Content Writer ♦ Content Marketer ♦  Technical Writer

Accomplished visionary and freelancer with over 800 completed projects. I have spent the past three years as a freelance content writer for some of the largest brands and startups around the world.

After graduating from Cal State Long Beach, I pursued a Master's Degree in Northern California's Cal State East Bay. While studying for my Master's Degree, I founded a small agency called Bay Area Dealer Services. It was this experience as the owner and operator of a sole proprietorship that I learned the power of persuasive messaging and engaging content.

Just when business was getting good, I received an offer from a competing business to buy me out. As a young, eager postgraduate student, I accepted the offer and received a check for what would become the foundation that the rest of my life was built on.

My business wasn't successful because it was unique or innovative. It was successful because I had unknowingly tapped into a messaging that customers resonated with.

I took that knowledge and began helping other clients find their messaging as a content writer. Three years later, I’m still a content writer with over 800 completed projects, a beautiful son, a lovely wife and passion for doing what I do best, WRITING!
