    United States - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 2

    I am a professional writer and editor with experience in web content and high volume article editing.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Engineering. I have been a help desk supervisor for a large corporation. I have worked in Real Estate, both in sales and appraisals. I have also done telemarketing for a non-profit organization.

I previously was the Editing Manager for a web content company in the UK and an editor for several other companies on a part-time basis.
