In addition to the advanced proficiencies outlined below, I also offer website building/design services at $100/hr. Demo: I specialize in: - Creating and managing Advanced Powerpoint training modules with simulated software in a contained-hyperlink environment. Ever imagine adding a button on a screen that reveals a high-level table of contents directly on that screen?* - Creating and writing within Advanced Word Templates that utilize detailed styles and reference links within professional designs. These look like they're created using Adobe Suites, but they're much more user friendly.* - Medical writing, medical content editing, medical review (including FDA submissions and Prescribing Information standards), learning management systems, and content management systems (especially ZincMAPS and VeevaVault) - Tailored troubleshooting. Essentially, if you have a system, software, or service that you or your team can't quite wrap your head(s) around or if you need to increase productivity with that system, software, or service, I perform a comprehensive consultation and guarantee results. I can even prepare training modules based on my findings to help train your team - Adobe PDF creation, Direct to Publishing preparation, creating binders, in PDF content editing, PDF publishing and conversions, password-protected PDF unlocking, etc. Basically, if you need anything, even something you might not think is possible with a PDF, I can likely do it, and faster. - Tailored writing, copyediting, and proofing services - PC and Mac I work remotely for a Chicago-based company performing all of the above skills. Any conflicts of interest will be considered before starting a project. I usually work within the pharmaceuticals, biotech, and non-profit sectors, and our project budgets often widely exceed $100k. My company bestows upon me a great deal of autonomy, which I'm currently taking advantage of by traveling around the world. I'm looking to leverage my skill set for a little extra work in my free time to help offset my travel expenses. I'm available on a per-case basis to any English speaking person in any country. Depending on your location, it may be possible to lend the time-differential toward an accelerated timeline. For example, I'm currently in Europe, which often allows me to meet deadlines before start of business Eastern Standard Time. I also have an associate with a similar skill set that occasionally assists me in my projects, further accelerating turnaround times. I'm looking forward to hearing from you! *Please contact me with questions about or for samples of my work.
