I am a professional writer and social science researcher living in New Orleans, Louisiana. I specialize in editing, proofreading, writing, and research. I have an M.A. in Anthropology from Columbia Univ., as well as a B.A. in Honors English from San Diego State Univ. I have versatile skills and interests and can cover a wide range of topics in the arts and sciences. As an anthropologist, I am well versed in cross-cultural perspectives, enabling me to write for diverse audiences. In addition, I have over ten years of experience as a freelance proofreader, editor, and tutor. On the creative side, I love to work with horror, science fiction, and fantasy, though I am certainly open to other genres. I am skilled at breaking down and paraphrasing highly technical language, which is advantageous for technical and science writing. In all areas, I have a meticulous editorial eye for grammar, spelling, formatting, and content.

I'm a professional multi-media journalist who can write, edit, research, produce, and design high-quality content on almost any topic and for any medium. From creating blog and social media posts to complete marketing communications plans, I have worked with clients including university programs, acupuncturists, chefs, commercial painters, e-commerce sites, news sites and forums, and more. I do not compromise my high ethical standards. Sorry, but I do not accept jobs that involve "ghostwriting" without credit, "spinning" and stealing others' copyrighted work, or other shady practices. What you get with me is a passionate, hard-working, detail-oriented, mass communications expert. What you do not get is someone who will rush the job or be a mindless "yes man" -- if I accept a job then I am committing to give you my best work effort, and that includes sometimes offering suggestions or advice -- getting you the final product you NEED, not just the one you think you want. I generally do not do Skype interviews or meetings for any projects paying less than $1,000. I am happy to answer any questions through ODesk or email, and I am happy to do a trial period for any ongoing positions. Sorry, but the reason I choose to do online freelancing is to make my own schedule and work in my pajamas; if you can't deal with that then best of luck finding someone who is a better fit for you.
