Objective

Recently relocated to New England, I wish to obtain regular writing assignments with a special accent on content writing for the Internet. I have a thorough understanding of writing to keywords with respect to optimization for search engines, and my English is faultless. I have a fast 24/7/365 Internet connection and can start writing immediately. I have written for a wide variety of different industries, links to which may be seen in this website. I maintain several personal websites and hold the equivalent of a Masters degree.
