    I am a college graduate. Over the past 10 I have been creating ebooks for Project Gutenberg through Distributed Proofreaders, the last 7 as a mid-level manager. We proof Opitcal Character Recognition software-generated text against page scans for accuracy, then write code for text, html, and epub editions. I attempt to make my code comply with current web Accessibility standards. For over a decade and a half I was an environmental enforcement agent on a municipal level, answerable to state and federal officials. During that time I was responsible for writing press releases, informational brochures, official correspondence, and grant proposals, as well as editing such from my boss.
