    QA Manager / Freelance Writer

    United States - Portfolio: 9

    As a multi-faceted individual, I'm skilled in both software QA and writing, rewriting, editing, and proofreading. I'm venturing from full-time office work into a full-time work-at-home freelancer. My desires are to find and keep quality clients, and expand my skills and experience by providing them with quality work, while still having fun. My specialties in Software QA include Agile, manual testing, test management, requirements review, and end-to-end functional testing - including database verification, something I have a particular fondness for. When it comes to writing, I have a vast array of interesting experiences to draw from and specialize in travel, technical, or adventure articles, research, and creative writing. I fully research any topic that I'm not familiar with, as well as many that I am familiar with. I'm a writer and the content administrator for scubadiverlife.com, a popular diving site.
