I have experience writing for print magazines, online magazines, blogs, websites, company newsletters, speeches, copywriting and promotional materials. If you need words I’ve got them and will assemble to your individual need!

With my extensive background in running, fitness, and all things related to sports performance I define these my areas of expertise and favorite topics to write about. But, I’m hardly limited to these alone and particularly enjoy freelance writing as it allows me to constantly learn and investigate new things.
