I’m available as a writer for hire. To discuss a project email me at ian@ianpaul.net.

I can help create engaging copy for a website, blog, brochure, or white paper. I’m also available to work as a ghostwriter on books, articles, speeches, and columns.

I have nearly fifteen years of experience in all manner of formats including press releases, press kits, pitch letters, professional biographies, blog posts, news articles, features, reviews, and tutorials.

For the past ten years, I’ve written almost exclusively about technology for PCWorld and other sites. My specialty is explaining consumer technology to non-technical users. I also have a working knowledge of HTML, CSS, Git, GitHub, and Markdown. In addition, I have a general understanding of JavaScript, Python, and Bash scripting.

I also hold a Master of Music from Indiana University.

Please note that I cannot accept short-term writing assignments from consumer technology companies.

My Experience

Writing has always been a big part of my life, but my career really started when I worked in public relations. During that time, I honed my skills for writing clear, precise, and factual copy that presented my clients in their best light.

Writing became a full-time profession a few short years later with my now decade-long tenure as a freelance journalist with PCWorld, and other IDG sites including TechHive, Macworld, and Greenbot. I’ve covered hundreds of stories about the major technology companies during this time including Amazon, Facebook, Google, and Microsoft. I’ve also done news analysis and reporting on tech legislation, as well as reporting on local Israeli companies such as Waze, Soluto, and Zuta Labs. I’m also a regular contributor to How-To Geek and Tech.co.

Throughout 2016, I was the resident Windows expert for About.com, which later became Lifewire.com. I wrote numerous tutorials for the site to help novice Windows users take full advantage of their PCs.

I also contributed to Yahoo Tech between August 2015 and February 2016. For Yahoo, I reported on a variety of topics such as the emergence of Internet access in Cuba and the true value of the fitness brand craze.

In 2009, I was invited to contribute to the Huffington Post.
