Verified identity


I am a journalist, editor, ghostwriter and marketer. In the six years since I graduated I have written everything from exclusive news articles to speeches for best men and fathers of the bride.

My motivation as a writer lies in diving into complex topics (or personalities) and figuring out how they work, then communicating it clearly to my readers.

I am versatile, hardworking and creative. Most of my work focuses on about investment, business and politics, but I am always interested in new challenges and diverse topics.

I am so happy and pleased I collaborated with Tom. He is extremely professional, an exceptional writer and editor, and great at guiding new writers like myself. Tom helped guided me every step of the way to shift from academic to general article writing. I will be most definitely using his services again. I highly recommend Tom.
