His ability to understand difficult technical information and quickly turn it into clear, easy-to-understand copy has made him a favorite of his clients.
He has performed a variety of different types of writing in the past, including proposal writing, journalism, and search-engine optimized blog writing. He has also written on a variety of different topics, including IT, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, government, law, academia, and engineering. No matter what the topic, Mark approaches each new writing opportunity with the earnest desire to learn new ideas and concepts, and then communicate those ideas and concepts in a way that connects with readers.
Mark believes that good writing can be one of the most powerful forces in the world, whereas bad writing will just annoy and confuse the reader. Because of this idea, he believes that if you're going to write at all, it's important that you write well. Good writing is more than just ink on the page: it has the ability to change peoples' lives for the better.
