    My experience revolve much around legal writing, research and analysis. After a three year stint as a legal researcher/analyst in the provincial government legal office, I am now the chief legal staff of an esteemed private lawyer in the City. And the above tasks are but normal functions of my office. I am also into ghost writing articles creatively and technically for students and young professionals. I even have experience in transcribing recorded audio of lectures and conferences, as well as video and audio conceptualizing and editing. A law student as of the moment, I desire to explore other genre of writing such as data encoding, SEO's, content writing, and etc. I am very well versed in MS office applications such as MS word, Ms Excel, MS Powerpoint, and some background in Ms Access. Since my core competency lies in my ability to communicate fluently in written and oral English Language with near native quality, I desire to be of service to anyone who needs a writer and a researcher (legal, creative, technical), a data entry professional or a virtual assistant. And it is my goal to provide quality and efficient service.
