Independent Business Communications

 

▪ CopyWriter ▪ Content creator
▪ technical writer/editor ▪ proofreader

There may be a place to write like Jackson Pollock painted, but not in the B2B and B2C communications world. Logic flow counts!

I’ve dealt with a wide variety of requirements and issues that companies like yours face every day. With more than 25 years' experience serving organizations ranging from Hewlett-Packard and Microsoft to Medrobotics and MedQIA, this equates to my likely having a unique perspective regarding your business communications needs.

Viewing your communications through the eyes of your clients, prospects, and readers, I'm often able to add even greater value by suggesting process improvements that may result in cost reductions or gains in workflow efficiency.

 

 

“I’ve been working with Chris for the past two years and have been nothing but impressed. His attention to detail is only surpassed by his consideration for his clients, even when asked to do the impossible.”

My Services

I'm a highly qualified independent editor, writer, ghostwriter, proofreader, content creator, technical writer, user experience (UX) advocate, all-around marketing person, and graphic artist who boosts high-tech B2B/B2C messaging across many disciplines.

In addition, I enjoy coaching aspiring business writers how to hone their craft (yes, writing is a craft) while editing their work.

Why Work With Me

I’m accustomed to working with executives, project managers, product marketing managers, engineers, and subject matter experts to meet tight deadlines. (And it's always a tight deadline, right?)

For you and your organization I’m able to create, edit, lay out, and proofread all types of documents, manuals, case studies, reports, journal submissions, marketing collateral, and web content for audiences ranging from physicians to engineers, CTOs to CIOs, developers to operators, and end users across many B2B/B2C realms.

My Approach

I strive to be a good steward of the English language while keeping an eye on changing trends. Therefore my style follows that of William Zinsser and the inimitable Sgt. Joe Friday—coupled with a bit of David Oglivy as appropriate.

As a value-add proposition, in effect I become a trusted extension of your staff—without your organization dealing with another employee compensation package. That's why marketing author and infosec VP Tim Matthews chose me from over 65 EFA candidates in 2014 to assist Imperva's content creation team.

Superior Applied Skill Set

Beyond providing outstanding writing, editing, and proofreading services, I've successfully wrangled many a Word, InDesign, and other software issue.  To paraphrase the revered William Zinsser in his best-selling On Writing Well: "When I solve a business communications or niggling software problem it’s like a surgeon removing his 500th appendix—I’ve been there before." Meanwhile others readily seek my advice regarding similar issues they encounter.
