I have a B.A. in English literature, a Ph.D. in linguistics from the University of Toronto, and 13 years of experience in academic writing and grant writing. During my academic career I have published 3 articles in top rated academic journals in my field, and 7 more as book chapters and conference proceedings. I have also presented my work at many academic venues, thus having perfected the skill to present any amount of information in a concise, clear, and engaging manner. During my graduate studies, I also regularly wrote grant proposals, and have managed to secure several highly prestigious federal and provincial grants. Over the course of 6 years, I have raised a total of over 130,000$ for my own academic research. My academic experiences have taught me that I genuinely enjoy the process of synthesizing ideas (my own and those of other people) into a compelling narrative. I started working as a freelance writer recently, and have already had experience writing grant proposals for a small non-profit start-up in Toronto, as well as writing and editing a couple of kickstarter projects. I greatly enjoyed this type of work, and look forward to more opportunities to help others with their research and writing needs. I believe that I can effectively apply my curiosity and skills to virtually any field of writing, editing or research.
