    While pursuing my computer science degree I came to recognize an even stronger love for writing, and I daresay I discovered a natural predilection for the craft. Note that despite the Upwork-mandated hourly rate listing, I prefer to work at predetermined fixed rates. I charge according to the value of the finished piece, not how long it takes me to complete it to your satisfaction. I am an artisan of the English language; hire me when you desire deliberate craftsmanship, not hasty, voluminous regurgitate.
