I write poetry, books, songs, verses, blogs, scripts, short stories, catchphrases, quotes, commercials, journalism, and more.

I am an excellent editor and proof-reader.

I can assimilate large amounts of information quickly. I have keen research skills. I am familiar with relevant software and platforms.


Do you need help in gauging what will interest your readers?

Do you require assistance with reading comprehension?

Are you having trouble with researching background information for stories?

You need my expert writing, research and editing skills to service your project today.


Hire me because I have the experience, attitude and a track record of successful projects you're looking for to excel on your behalf.


Hire me because I'm smart, hard working, loyal and affordable. I'm amazing at what I do and every day I'll put in 110%.


Hiring me will make you look more awesome than you already are and make your life easier. Plus, I'll be committed to your project and all your written needs.



I'm a unique person with the ability to communicate spoken thoughts and ideas into a snappy, well-arranged story or verse.


I have excelled in written language skills since the age of 16 and have found myself always resorting to editing, Spelling, Grammar, and Punctuation when reading magazines, books, and newspapers. After several career endeavors and setbacks, I realized that my gift and true purpose was present all along.


In the midst of song cataloging and after the completion of my first book, Christmas Hustle, I placed my focus on my strengths and my natural ability to be creative beyond the limits of ink and paper by helping others achieve their goal with my expert writing and editing skills. Helping others allowed me to see and understand my dreams.
