    Over the past 15 years I have developed a wide range of skills working as an independent contractor. I love to learn and because of that there are multiple jobs that I enjoy and excel at. Although I enjoy all of my jobs, I am most passionate about writing. I am fortunate to have a lot of experience in many areas, such as: Writing: SEO Content, Copy writer, Creative (bachelor's degree in Journalism), Mac Specialist, IT (tech support for AOL), Paralegal (legal asst. degree), Private Investigation (licensed), Researcher, Data Entry, Writing for ChaCha and Ask.com, Accounts Payable and Receivable, General Automotive Knowledge (1 year auto mechanics), and more. However, whatever it is that I am tasked to do I give my all. It is very important to me that I do the job to my employer's expectations; it makes them feel good which makes me feel good.

    I always believe in customer service and customer satisfaction. My experience, both as a customer and a customer service representative, gives me the perspective of both worlds to be able to effectively deliver results. I have dealt with all kinds of customers for 11 years or so, from almost all parts of the world and in various fields (travel, manufacturing, legal services, carpet cleaning services and the like) and I fully understand what they truly want: excellent service.

    Writer (Creative & Technical), Editor and Proofreader

    United States - Last active: 23 days ago - Portfolio: 1

    I would like to use my writing skills, both creative and technical, to their highest advantage. I have a great deal of experience in legal research and writing, which allows me to take many different types of technical and scientific data and make them understandable to the average person. This was a necessity for me as I also tried numerous cases before juries in both Florida and Georgia. It will also help me take such data and make it understandable to your readers. Presently, I primarily write and edit eBooks. I have written them on subjects ranging from legal to financial. I have also been working on a very ambitious training manual with foreign partners for the last year. I contribute content as well as do all of the English language editing. In addition, I have been hired to write everything from web content to short stories over the past few years. I am also a very creative writer. For myself, I write novels, short stories, and poetry. For others, I have written short stories, case studies, and a children's book. My English, language and grammar skills are exemplary and my research is always thorough. Finally, I'm a capable editor of both style and content.

    Freelance Writer

    United States - Last active: 13 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 3

    I'm an attorney-turned business academic, who can turn some pretty arcane stuff into lively readable copy. I practiced law in the employee benefits field before turning to teaching at a community college. I teach a wide variety of courses including English, Business Law and American government. My first love is writing, though. My experience makes it possible for me to wade into some technical areas others might find daunting and drag out the treasure. It's not good writing, no matter how scholarly, if no one wants to read it. I've published in print in national journals like Compensation and Benefits Management and Benefits Quarterly. My online portfolio includes blogs, white papers and research pieces on legal and educational topics, but I'm always up for a new challenge.
