Summary of Experience
David is a freelance writer who brings to the table years of experience with different writing styles.

For as long as he can remember, David has been reading and writing anything he could think of: Fiction, articles, blogs, websites, songs, poems, historical documents, etc. Throughout time, the one thing humans have depended on the most are their words. The right word can save a relationship, the wrong word can start a war. David's philosophy is that words have meaning, and as such should be carefully chosen and placed to best suit the reader's needs. Different writing styles are like different languages, and sometimes, no one style is correct. Because of this, he believes in mastering more than one style to suit the needs of the project at hand.

Aspiring to be a writer of fiction grounded in reality, David strives to understand as much as possible about anything he comes across, and is what you'd call a fast learner, even when it comes to things he never knew he'd want to know about.
