I am a freelance writer and website designer with over ten years of experience in web development, training, and technical communications.
I design small- to medium-sized websites that run off of popular content management systems like Drupal, Wordpress, and Community Server. I do the project planning, design, development, writing, training, and support -- the whole shebang! Bring me in and I will work with you to make sure you get what you want, at a reasonable cost.
Back in 1995, I started my career as an English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher, where I regularly designed and led training programs. From that training and experience, I developed a strong user-centered focus in all of my work. When I became a technical writer and then a web developer, I continued to use that ESL instructional design methodology as a foundation. Everything I write -- articles, training, user and developer manuals, web copy, online help, etc. -- has clear objectives based on what the reader needs.
For freelance projects, I can offer the following services:
Website Design and Development
Get a new website that meets your budget. I offer custom template design, development using the best open-source tools, web hosting, copywriting... it's up to you.

Are you too busy to update your website? Or you just don't know how? I can:

Writing, Editing, and Training
I offer a variety of services related to technical communications, including: web copywriting, online help development, technical documentation, developmental editing. I write clear, compelling content that gets the eyeballs. Or if you need a vicious editor not afraid to wield a red pen, I'm that guy, too.
