Summary of Experience
Since he began working in content marketing in June 2014, Andrew has completed more than eight hundred assignments through WriterAccess and other marketing sites. He has written blog posts, articles, web pages, white papers, and grant proposals. His specialties include history, finance, healthcare, and the environment, though he is happy to learn and write about any topic at a moment's notice.

He wrote on everything from business ventures to arts festivals to environmental initiatives to political controversies. He later interned at the Institute for Commonwealth Studies, a London-based think-tank that publishes research on the history of the Commonwealth of Nations. He also worked at Mount Vernon, where he gave tours while studying and writing about the eighteenth-century anti-slavery movement in Virginia.

Article

Andrew has written hundreds of articles over the course of his career, covering everything from finance to wildlife to medicine to trade school trade-offs. He prides himself on his ability to quickly research information and synthesize it in a way that any reader can understand. In less than an hour, he can write an engaging, detailed, carefully fact-checked article about a subject of which he had no prior knowledge.

Blog Post

Andrew has written blog posts about car maintenance, cosmetics, business management, dining, and a myriad of other topics. He uses this format to communicate casually with readers, providing them with information without making them feel ignorant. He is thus able to gain readers' trust, gradually winning them over to the cause or position he is blogging about.
