Hi! I have been writing on the Web since 2007. Prior to moving into content and ghost writing, in a former life I worked in the community college setting in a variety of administrative support roles. I loved working with students.
Today my freelance writing work covers a broad spectrum, but primarily I write about careers, business, tech, higher education and Washington D.C. and Northern Virginia travel.

Having lived in the DC area for close to 10 years now, I love to share my enthusiasm for this region on my blog, Visiting the Washington, D.C. Metro Area (www.washingtondcmetroarea.blogspot.com). I also run a photography blog that highlights the DC area, New York and beyond, mostly regional and nature photos (www.photosbyleighgoessl.blogspot.com).
