    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!

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 1

    I'm a gifted storyteller, dedicated to helping clients tell theirs. I say this unabashedly and with complete confidence. The proof, of course, is the words. Today, finding the right words is more important than ever, and I strive to under-promise but over-deliver. The name of my company says it all: words-are-my-biz And my philosophy is simple: The right words sell. The wrong words leave sales on the table. WHO AM I? I’m a professional writer living in Portland, Oregon with a lifelong passion for the power of the written word. I’ve written everything from novels to blogs, sales collateral to web content, ad copy to letters, business proposals to sales plans and training manuals. Not to mention a few thousand papers getting my four kids through high school and college. I love what I do. WHAT IS MY BACKGROUND? I bring more than thirty years of sales and marketing business management experience to every project, and by this I’m talking about major corporations to mid-size companies and start-ups, working in fields including software, real estate, law, publishing, advertising and services. I confess to having a particular fondness for high degree-of-difficulty challenges. JUST HOW DO I DO WHAT I DO? By asking questions, listening and considering what I hear, followed by collaborative brainstorming to develop a plan we both embrace with confidence and enthusiasm. As you seek synergy within your organization, I seek it with my clients. It pays huge dividends. The common thread is in finding the way to communicate more effectively, internally and externally, with staff, customers and prospects. The common challenge is in identifying the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and unique competitive factors confronting each client. HOW CAN YOU LEARN MORE ABOUT ME?
