I have 20 years solid and proven experience writing business articles, including profiles, features, compiling training manuals, sales letters, as well as video scripts and copy writing. Additionally, I have operated the Hinterland Gazette, which is a blog that covers political and social issues, including commentary on the political landscape, as well as some international, culture and entertainment news. I have interviewed many public figures such as CNN's Soledad O'Brien, former senatorial candidate Kendrick Meeks, money manager William Baker, ski cross champion Errol Kerr, former Atlanta mayor Shirley Franklin, CNN political analyst Jamal Simmons, and many others. I have solid and proven experience in grant writing and proposals. I also have solid experience in covering the equity markets and social media. I am adept at breaking down complex data into easily-understood articles.
