I am a physician interested in exploring opportunities to use my medical background and general writing abilities to do some medical writing/editing work. I have experience in the medical sciences including internal medicine, psychiatry/psychology, pediatrics, emergency medicine, cardiology, nephrology, gastroenterology and critical care medicine.

Hello, my name is Lyndon Johnson-- no, really, that's my name-- and I'm here to help you with your writing project. Whether you need someone to copy-edit your blog, proofread your news article, or write news or press release material, I want to be your go-to guy. In the past 10 years, I've worked as a journalist, graphic designer, photographer, copy editor, and proofreader at a small weekly newspaper, I've spent three years as a public relations coordinator and writer for a large company with thousands of employees and tens of thousands of customers, and I've even spent time on the production side of the newspaper industry. I've also had experience handling the social media presence and e-mail marketing efforts of those employers. I'd like the opportunity to put this experience to work for you in writing, proofing, and copy-editing articles; making your social media and e-marketing efforts more effective; taking and editing your photos; designing or tweaking your printed materials and forms; or planning and executing a strategy for your public relations needs. I strive to be versatile so that I may be of service.

I am a persistent and persuasive person who finds answers where others cannot.
Hello, my name is Andrea and I am a graphic and layout designer. I started designing for newspapers and magazines four years ago. I like the challenges that come with getting an idea, and creating a package that displays that thought in a visually appealing presentation. I am not afraid to fail, there have been several times when working on a page or a graphic and things just don't work, instead of trying to make a failing idea work I will start from the beginning if I have to. As a designer I want to be innovative and proud of the work that I produce. That does not mean that I do not accept criticism or input from others. My design style is modern, utilizing clean lines and vector images. I don't let my style override the desires of a client. As a client you are trusting that I know what to do. I want to make your idea come to life.
