Since then, he's kept writing at the core of ventures into journalism, creative writing, public relations, ghostwriting, online content management, and even university-level writing instruction, with clients ranging from C-level executives to major sports leagues to entrepreneurs and non-profit organizations.

Specialties

Phil West is adept at handling a vast range of writing projects on myriad topics, capturing and articulating a client's voice while maintaining consistent writing standards. Specialties include blog writing (from topic generation to editing and proofing, with industry-specific work including education, health care, law, and tech), content management (including website copy and online publication writing), and ghostwriting (including op-ed creation and book writing).

Interests

Even though Phil West has deeply-seated interests that don't explicitly engage writing, he's most decidedly woven writing into how he approaches those personal passions. His love for music — which propelled him to write professionally at the outset of his professional career — continues to this day, with his writing often soundtracked by the radio station where he deejayed as a college student eager to educate himself on air. His current love of soccer is amplified by writing for two publications dedicated to knowledgable coverage of the beautiful game — Major League Soccer's official website, and The Striker Texas, a subscriber-based site serving fans of Texas' three MLS teams and its USL and NWSL teams.
