    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 5

    My academic background is literary and legal, undergraduate major studies in English and French literature and graduate study in law. One published appeals court opinion says, "This case illustrates graphically the concept that law is a specialized language. Mr Stanton has made impressive progress in the mastery of that language," In re Stanton, 589 A2d 425, 427 (DC 1991) cert denied 502 US 1098, 112 SCt 1178 (1992). My trademark work product is copy composed or edited for correct grammar, clear syntax, consistent structure, and concise, colorful styling for comprehension and easy readability. My knowledge of computer operating systems and legal and editorial applications is strong. My work ethic deals with daunting deadlines by always putting the job first. As technical editing contractor for the 2007 revision of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission Standard Review Plan for License Renewal I made the legal, scientific, and technical subject matter of NRC safety evaluation reports on nuclear power plant systems, structures, and components readable and comprehensible to the public. With no experience in nuclear engineering I never missed nor requested more time to meet an editorial deadline.
