    The best writing is precise, concise, accurate, and accessible to a non-specialist. I am a native English speaker with extensive editing and writing experience. I am comfortable writing about anything in science or commerce, and specialize in the natural sciences, medicine, psychology, history, and the social sciences. Cryptocurrency has become a subspecialty of mine. I can edit and write about any topic. As a retired professor with a Ph.D., I have published over 70 papers. Forty of those papers have been cited at least 40 times! You can see all my work on Google Scholar, linked on my portfolio. For 15 years, I was an associate editor of "Systematic Biology", one of the highest impact journals in science. I guided many doctoral dissertations to successful completion and was head of admissions in my department. I have a strong record in writing proposals ​and have been awarded seven NSF grants. I have years of experience in teaching as well, with demonstrated success at primary, secondary, undergraduate and graduate levels. This experience has provided skills in explaining things to any targeted audience, from 5 year-olds to professors. Just because I am capable of writing highly complex technical stuff does not mean that I cannot communicate to a general audience. Please do not invite me to interview for fixed-price jobs. I prefer hourly rates so that I can offer you meticulous service, without rushing.

Please see my design page for further clarification. -- Strengths -- 1. Pace of output I work quickly without cutting corners. Clients often comment on my ability to respond to needs at pace without sacrificing attention-to-detail. 2. Perserverance I don’t give up easily. If tasked with a problem, I will more than likely see it through. 3. Time management I have become quite adept at estimating how long a project will take. This ensures the return of work in a timely manner, reasonable project costs and high quality work. 4. Communication I am available for chats either via messaging or via zoom during business hours CET. I request 24 hours’ notice before a Zoom call if it is not a regular catch-up. 5. Teamwork I apply my experiences from work situations to team-working as a freelancer as the need arises. I'm good at following close instructions from whoever is in charge but also able to self-direct. 6. Incorporating feedback I expect and value feedback on work submitted. I can work in close alignment with clients towards the end of a project to ensure that it meets their needs as far as is possible. 7. Consulting & vision I'm good at spotting things other people don't. I can be a valuable resource in observing your project or business from an independent standpoint, and will always give an honest and open opinion if asked.

    Working as a business consultant with 100+ unique non- and for-profit clients has taught me how to effectively develop and communicate the vision of new startups; this experience directly translates to understanding what aspects of a technical writing piece need to be highlighted to entice new investors. I have started three of my own businesses and have helped many other entrepreneurs explore their ideas and then write strategic business plans, curate donor lists, and prepare comprehensive proposals. I have led the writing of concept notes and grants both independently and with multi-million dollar NGOs; written a global comparative analysis for the Timorese Government; and consulted on project design related to everything from food security to plastic recycling. While overseas, I started a nonprofit NGO and raised funding, handled a budget, and organized a 6-day event with over 40 participants in two languages. Throughout all of my work I have excelled at working with new ideas and programs, helping develop ideas into plans, and problem solving to make the visions of others into realities. I like making it happen. As an independent consultant, I plan and organize my work, develop deliverables, and report on my findings to my employer and stakeholders. Throughout all of my work I have proven myself to be self motivated, proactive, and highly organized. I have an engineering degree which allows me to dive deep into technical details; a marketing and entrepreneurship business background which allows me to handle the financial operations; and non-profit grant writing experience which allows me to interact with the government and donors sectors effectively. I was a branch manager for a marketing company and produced 13% growth in sales over my term. This marketing background provides me the perspective necessary to attract investors and address their unspoken concerns directly. I am excited at the prospect of working where I can utilize my big picture and detail oriented thinking while building long term relationships. I would enjoy the opportunity to discuss how my research and implementation experience would directly benefit your business.
