    I am a decent cook, a proficient map reader, a devoted wife and mother, a lousy tennis player, and an excellent writer. These are the things I know of myself to be true. I have 15 years of professional writing experience across a variety of industries including health IT, consumer technology, government, public accounting, management consulting, wine-making, and print journalism. I have a unique ability to distill complex concepts into compelling content appropriate for its intended audience. I ask a lot of questions, often more than once, to build subject fluency that is technically accurate and contextually clear. I am seeking freelance work through oDesk because I am a new mom and am seeking schedule flexibility. In my previous marketing executive roles I have worn many hats. For oDesk, I wish to wear my only favorite: writer.

    Broadcast Media and Writing Specialist

    United Kingdom - Last active: 12/09/2014 - Tests: 1

    I'm a radio presenter, writer, podcaster, interviewer, researcher, journalist and mentor/trainer with a passion for empowering people and utilising opportunities for creative expression. I have been involved in community and online radio projects since 1999, giving me experience in all areas of programme preparation and production (both live and pre-recorded). Between December 2013 and August 2014 I held the role of Operations Manager with former internet station Top Tunes FM, enabling me to utilise my training and mentoring abilities while encouraging others to develop both transferable and media-specific skills. The position also provided me with a detailed appreciation of issues surrounding scheduling content, networking with other outlets, using social media to promote charity events run by the station and ensuring adherence to legal requirements such as avoidance of slander and respecting copyright legislation. I am also a competent tutor and motivational speaker, both in areas of media and communication and on aspects related to personal development and equality awareness. Between 2011 and 2013 I ran Ability Gateway, an enterprise which provided disability and equality awareness training and workshops for schools, businesses and individuals, as well as disability sports demonstrations and coaching sessions. These experiences ensure that I am equally suited to working with able-bodied individuals and user-led disability groups, from people with sensory impairments to persons with learning difficulties and mental health illnesses, as well as the organisations which seek to serve their needs and promote their interests.
