Your source for easy-to-comprehend written materials.
Capitalize on in-depth experience. I was fortunate to have a college professor who taught me how to copy edit and proofread. While an undergraduate, I began editing papers, theses, and dissertations for classmates. I also wrote scripts for a National Public Radio show and edited the international student newsletter on campus. One summer I worked as a Copy Editor for a publishing company.
After graduating from the University of Wisconsin with an English degree, I landed my first full-time position as a Copywriter for Snap-on, Inc. Today I concentrate on producing advertising, training, and instructional materials; writing books and articles; and serving as a book editor (see Your Words in Print.com).

Testimonials "Richard is a true professional. I had the pleasure of working with him ... and found him to be a thorough and conscientious writer and editor. I especially appreciated his willingness to share his knowledge. He is easy to talk to and to work with in person, on the phone, and via email. I would welcome working with Richard again." -- J.S.
"I had the pleasure of working with Richard ... when my company needed to re-write its technical manuals. Richard has an amazing ability to transform highly technical information into understandable language for the reader. He is intelligent and articulate, and easily moved between engineering, marketing, and management to develop a new voice, new structure and new style to our instructional manuals." -- M.R.
