Summary of Experience
Eric has over six years of experiencing working in real-world publishing and producing online content. He has written blog articles designed to promote businesses, created website landing pages, in-depth "how to" guides, unique personal recipes, product descriptions, sports news, columns on sporting events, video game and music reviews, tips on choosing wine, and even health-related content. In the past, he worked at a daily newspaper with a 10,000+ publication range, covering local sports. Currently, he works for a marketing firm producing a variety of content for multiple clients, primarily in the health field.

Beyond his writing experience, Eric also has hands-on experience in the education system. He substitute taught for three years, every level from preschool to high school. This gave him an adaptability to the need of various education levels and an ease communicating with people of many ages. As a result, he can fine-tune his writing to multiple reading levels.

Before working in news, he earned 3+ years of experience in the health field working with the mentally impaired. As a direct care worker, he interacted with clients in ways that taught him much about the ways they thought and what fueled their behaviors. This unique insight makes him a particularly skilled writer of health and psychological content.

A typical day of writing for Eric consists of starting with working on and finishing his daily writing assignments and then moving on to his own personal writing, including multiple novels and a review blog. Staying active in what he calls "fun" writing helps keep his skills sharp by challenging him to approach writing in a unique way and keeping him actively writing every day.

All of this ties in to Eric's basic writing philosophy: writing is an art form and one that must be perfected through daily practice. Mastering a daily writing practice gives him the ability to quickly and accurately produce multiple types of content. Before he writes a single word, he researches multiple aspects of a topic to ensure that it is properly covered.

Only through proper research does he believe that he can write content that is accurate and easy to read and understand. In this way, he provides content that presents useful information to the reader and successfully promotes a client's business.

No topic is too esoteric for Eric. In his various writing endeavors, he has written about addiction, fly fishing, divorce law, pest control, exercise and fitness, art, entertainment, travel, and much more. Research is the king and finding the best information and streamlining it to solid content is his primary goal. Length is not a problem, either: he's done everything from 250 word blog posts to 2,000 word columns.
