I am a professional publisher, editor, and educator with magazine publishing, management, and on-line e-learning course development experience. Within the oDesk online environment, I am currently the Editor in Chief of Australian Fit Lifestyle magazine. This is an Australian wide publication. From creating the detailed business plan to production of the final product, involved with every facet of planning and implementing the development of this magazine. The worldwide staff I oversee includes writers, graphic artists, web designers, social media personnel, sales and marketing staff, printers, and shippers. I have completed multiple long term contracts working directly for oDesk in project management and ... moreeditorial capacities. These projects entailed managing a team of writers proofing and editing original articles for dissemination on the Internet. Topics covered a wide range of categories, including food, business, computers, industry, education, and more. Also within the oDesk environment, I developed the e-Online First Aid course for First Aid International, an Australian-wide training firm. For the 4+ years before working in the oDesk environment, I developed and published a family oriented, monthly magazine, The River’s Edge, which covered an area of 35 miles around St. Charles, MO. This magazine had a monthly circulation of over 20,000, in print and via the Internet. I took this magazine from concept to the final product. In addition to my current position, I have over 22 years of experience as an IT software consultant, a professional Master Scuba Diver Instructor, and a Safety Instructor (including First Aid and OSHA General Industry Safety). less
