I have experience in technical and academic writing and rewriting. I can also perform copy typing, transcription and data entry. Since retirement, I have completed a number of ghost-writing assignments for clients in the underground mining industry, which is also my background.

    “Great work, very impressed. Went above and beyond what was requested adding in a lot of original content as well as creating a theme to connect it all together. Very easily grasped the message we were trying to convey as well as the image portrayed, incorporating that into his work. What was thought to be an already complete piece of work before hiring the Freelancer is now on a new level in comparison to how it was previously. Very highly recommended.”
