I love to read, to learn, and to write. I am very passionate about medicine, science, and health, and I feel very fortunate to be able to combine these passions with my love for writing. I come from a broad scientific background and have a sound understanding of most biomedical topics, including cell biology, molecular biology, physiology, immunology, microbiology, pharmacology etc. For the last two years, I have been studying and working in the Skin Cancer Biology Lab at the University of British Columbia, Canada, where my research has been mainly focused on cancer (melanoma). I am currently working full time as a freelance academic editor and medical writer. I have over two years' experience in writing scientific papers and grant proposals, in performing literature reviews, and in collecting, organizing, and analyzing experimental data. I have great organizational skills and have never missed a deadline (and don't intend to start now!) Please feel free to contact me for any job related to medicine, no matter how small or how big. I'm also happy to help out with translations from Swedish to English, whether they are related to medicine or not. Cheers :)
Traveling, living, and doing research in Latin America over 35 years has produced 3 books on El Salvador, a guide to Machu Picchu, two edited books on Mexico and peacekeeping, and dozens of articles on topics from civil war in El Salvador to points of interest in and around Niagara Falls. Along the way, I have acquired skills in resume writing, PowerPoint, and editing. In recent years photography has become a passion, accompanied by a growing portfolio of travel writing.

I’m writer and editor, living in the San Francisco Bay area. My 11 years at the San Francisco Business Times made me a fast, accurate writer on many subjects, from starting a small business to complex finance reporting. I was also the newspaper's copy editor for many years. My work includes many years as a digital content producer and web editor, with a focus on financial reporting, breaking news and small business coverage. Working with writers from veteran reporters down to raw interns has given me the ability to learn to polish good writing and overhaul poor writing. My fluency in the AP Stylebook and Chicago Manual of Style makes me an excellent proofreader able to take even the rawest of copy and bring it in to compliance. I am looking for writing, proofing and editing jobs on any subject.
