    United States - Last active: 18 days ago - Tests: 1

    I write. National Public Radio, USA Today, The American Institute of Physics, and The Smithsonian have published my work. I've prepared patents, developed instructions for computer users, worked at Ehow, and published an Amazon Bestseller that hit #1 in astronomy, surpassing even Stephen Hawking's books. I started in the computer field. After developing training materials and publishing newsletters, I worked in Washington and Tokyo in the patent field. I specialized in semiconductors and computers. Then I spent eight years in public policy. Always a Star Trek fan, I published a way of reaching Alpha Centauri, our nearest star. I co-authored the paper with a friend from the Peace Corps. I've been writing about life in Jupiter's moon Europa recently. My electrical engineering studies at George Washington University helped me understand the nature of Europa. The electrical field data collected by NASA's Galileo probe prove that this moon of Jupiter holds an ocean. Unfortunately, many still don't understand that. I hope to promote exploration of this moon so we can confirm life. I also hold a law degree from George Washington University and an information systems degree from Georgia.

    United States - Last active: 8 days ago - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 1

    My experience as an editor and a writer on a professional level began in a law firm in 2005. There I was responsible for editing briefs and correspondences to courts and clients. Throughout law school I worked part time as an editor in many capacities. My title was Research Assistant for payroll purposes. In spring of 2008, I successfully completed a competition for a job editing a series of casebooks. Around this time, I was also hired to edit portions of a brief that was subsequently submitted to The Supreme Court of the United States. In the summer of 2008, I succeeded in an editing competition for a position as an editor on the Ohio State Journal of Criminal Law. The following year, I was elevated to the Production Editor position (second position below Editor-in-Chief) with the same professional journal. Also in 2009, I performed work as an editor for another U.S. Supreme Court case, as well as for another casebook author. In addition to being an editor, I have experience from several positions that require substantial writing, and meticulous professional editing skills. I am currently General Counsel, part time and on a pro bono basis, to a non-profit organization operating both in Virginia and in Central America. Prior to law school, I served the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee. I advised members of the Committee, and I prepared portions of official reports and full speeches. I later wrote a federal court order, which was adopted without changes by the judge for whom I volunteered. I have taught several college courses with significant writing requirements. Further, I have tried more than one hundred cases, and I have pursued several appeals in Virginia state courts. Finally, my legal analysis has been recognized by legal scholars as my academic publication is cited in prestigious legal journals. My priority is to maintain extraordinary skill and character in everything that I do.
