I am a Providence, RI-based freelance content writer and owner of Paladin Publications. Since becoming a freelance writer, I’ve written hundreds of bylined and ghostwritten blog posts, articles, and investigative pieces.
Writing has long been one of my passions. I was that weird kid in school who actually enjoyed English class (math was another story). In my teens, I combined my passion for writing with my love of gaming and founded the gaming reviews website Game Overdrive, where I recruited and oversaw a staff of writers responsible for fairly and accurately reporting on video game news, releases, and developments. During this timeframe, and on behalf of Game Overdrive, I led a successful boycott against game developers who implemented the invasive “Starforce” DRM software.
After reaching adulthood and spending almost a decade working in unfulfilling jobs, I finally made my dream come true to write for a living in early 2017. It was a decision that felt completely natural and one I haven’t regretted since. As a freelance content writer, I draw upon my love of writing for every client project I’m fortunate enough to work on and treat your business — and your hopes for success — as if they were my own.
I strive for integrity and accuracy in both my business dealings and my written work, and value developing strong business relationships with my clients. When you work with me, you can be rest assured that I make it my business to help your business succeed.
Services and Rates
I specialize in writing well-researched and data-driven content according to your preference in style, tone, and voice. All content I write is SEO-friendly (without using keyword stuffing or any negative/black hat techniques) and is edited at least three times prior to submitting my first draft.
In addition, you’re working with me, and me alone, from start-to-finish. While I may hire an editor from time-to-time, I don’t outsource any of my writing. Any content I produce is written from scratch by me, for you. There’s no cookie-cutting here (in fact, I’m a really bad baker).
I’m not the cheapest writer. When you hire me, you’re hiring me based on my expertise, skillset, and portfolio. Each project is unique and my quoted rates are custom-tailored to exactly what you’re looking for in terms of how much research a topic will require, your required turnaround time, and the estimated/expected length of the project. Before any contract is sign or any word is written, we’ll agree on a price upfront that’s fair to us both so you’ll know exactly how much you have to pay.
Please bear in mind that I do not charge per word/per hour for writing projects. A per-word/hourly rate isn’t fair to either of us and leads to some awkward constraints.
All projects require an upfront deposit payable upon contract signing before work is begun. A sample contract can be read here.
