Mark Baker

Editor/Proofreader/Subject Matter Expert


Virginia Beach, United States


I have more than 25 years’ experience in both an editorial capacity and in various office environments and would make a good candidate for your position. These jobs have been as varied as media (newspapers, magazines and Internet), search engine marketing (Microsoft and Google) and construction. These positions have required me to be very detail oriented and to manage multiple tasks simultaneously. Additionally, I also have a culinary arts degree and have worked as a chef.

    I ended the contract because there was no work made available for more than two weeks, and no notification from the client as to why the work flow had stopped. I gladly would have kept the contract open had the client been more forthcoming.
