A professional writer since 1997, I've been fortunate to have helped hundreds of clients.
(I have almost 11-years of client reviews and testimonials in my Book of Proof, below).
First, to both orientate you that you're in the right place, and to alleviate any concerns you may have, here's a small taster of what some of my clients have said:
This is the 2nd time I've hired Russ and his skill, professionalism and expert communication was genuinely appreciated and respected. I hope we get to work together again!
(Hannah Morris, Head of Design and Development, Impact International)
"Russ is incredible!!!!!! A true professional & expert who went above and beyond for us. Thank you, Russ!!"
(Microsoft, White paper)
“Russ is a highly competent expert in Technical Editing and Copywriting. Russ was able to work as a seamless extension to our business analysis and software development team to craft and update detailed design documents and analysis documents.
His experience and expertise improved not only the documents but also our team's skills and capabilities by showing us new and improved ways of crafting and Editing documents. As an added benefit, Russ works/lives in a different time zone which allowed our team to provide him documents at the end of a day and receive them back from Russ when we arrived to the office in the morning.
I and our entire team, wholehearted endorse Russ and his excellent work. We will definitely engage him again in the future. Thanks.”
(Steve Goldsby, President, ICS)
You've seen some of my testimonials and reviews, above. Below is my Book of Proof containing client reviews and testimonials from 2011:
A professional writer since 1997, I've helped clients in in many industries, including manufacturing, live events, maritime (commercial and defense).
However, my journey with software began in 1999 and, 20+ years on, SaaS is where my heart is.
SaaS clients I've helped are in:
The MCSE (Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer) was my starting point. That was in 1999 and I've never looked back.
From working onsite in London, Peterborough, Norwich, I've helped many organizations clarify and improve all areas of their business. From honing processes and procedures, through to QA/QC roles in a major programme at Aviva, and even document management systems.
More recently, I've worked on various projects, including consulting on UI/UX for a boat marketplace; user guides, sales pages, email lists, VSLs, and even video training for construction; and, along the way created my own book-publishing software using Microsoft Word and have self-published over 800-books on Amazon for myself and others.

You'd be surprised but, hopefully, not much.
It's impossible to have all the answers, but what I find is you actually earn your money when the chips are down.
When the plan goes wrong, the lateral thinking needs to kick in, and you need to draw hard on those expensive qualifications and certs to earn your keep.
And that's what I excel at.
As Jamie Kelly, president of Brainy Marketing said:
A developer at heart, since then I've also upped my own game.
In one recent conversation, the client pointed out how I'd, quite literally, "written the book on formatting." Again, having published over 800 books for myself and clients, it would be rude to disagree.
(This also makes it perfect for clients who need reports, white papers, or other lead magnets.)
Note: I do have client reviews and testimonials dating back to 2011 in my Book of Proof, below. That way you can see exactly what everyone's said and use this to make your mind up about what it's like to work with me.
Note: the above items are not exclusive. With over 2 decades as a professional writer, at one time or another, I have written most types of documentation and am sure to be able to help. If you're unsure, get in touch - "It's just a conversation."
A veteran technical copywriter, here's where my expertise lies:
To serve my clients better:
That was just one of several writing projects I've helped Microsoft with.
Online help to video training:
From articles to webpage wireframing:
Multi-page user guides to single-page on-boarding:
And much more.
And landing pages to email sequences:
To anyone who uses Word.
