    Writing - Creative and technical - English transcription

    United States - Last active: 06/19/2012 - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 3

    I enjoy writing essays and short articles, especially with a humorous twist or health related, so technical writer may not be the best possible description - just the only one that is close. Any sort of writing would interest me. Though I write best in a stream-of-consciousness, straight forward style, I also enjoy researching and then presenting the results of that research in an easy to digest style. Semi-technical or creative writing to supplement my retirement income would be my basic objective. I've developed a number of blogs using WordPress and am skilled with most of the Microsoft Office suite including Excel. My schedule is very flexible and I am very serious about living up to any commitments I make. I'm a quick study and easy to interact with. Test scores reflect my mental acuity. Top 10% and top 20% included in passing scores on tests taken in very short time.

    Health Reporter,Culture Blogger--w/ Spanish & creative writing exp.

    United States - Last active: 07/21/2013 - Tests: 2

    With publication credits ranging from a children's iPad picture book to a biochemistry textbook addendum, I've written for companies ranging from DC newspapers to a Chinese cooking school. From serious academic to joyful banter, I can match the voice of your company with fresh content for increased readership. Research is my specialty: I've sequenced a new genome, built an optic parametric oscillator for an infrared laser, and published review-quality biomolecule analysis on CD-44. I completed my history bachelor's in 2011 with brand new research on ancient Chinese wedding rituals, and since then over a dozen companies have contracted me through Scripted.com for ghost-blogging research. I know where to look to find the answers. I also have private Spanish translation experience from eight years with Project Paraguay and over a year of translating in a medical setting. I've just begun pursuing my M.D. in Puerto Rico with an MCAT of 34--and to get in I had to fulfill stringent requirements for interacting with patients in Spanish. For questions about my medical experience, which ranges from time as a paid ABA autism therapist to licensed pharmacy technician, please consult my resume. I've worked in multiple clinical settings, so I've studied healthcare from numerous angles and I can make complex medicine clear and understandable to your healthcare audience--in Spanish or English. For the clients with a creative bent, or anyone just looking for a good gift for a friend, I've also spent three years as a member of the critters.org writing community, helped critique several fiction manuscripts, and written five novels. I specialize in science fiction. I can write for you, or I can come alongside you as a copy editor and revisionist to bring out the full potential of your untold story. Last, but not least, with visits to four continents and nearly 20 countries under my belt, I've picked up nearly six languages and fallen in love with cultures all over the world. Travel and culture blogging comes naturally to me, and I've been paid to do both. I focus on bringing openmindedness and new ideas to any topic I write, from medicine to culture to translation and creative writing, and if you ever need anything, I am more than willing to give it a shot. Let me know if I can help you!
