I am a 29 year old Energy Engineer, from France. I have two Master's diplomas in Engineering, including a successful semester spent abroad in Australia. My work experience ranges from R&D Photovoltaic Engineering in Germany, to consulting for NGOs throughout the world, as well as extensive volunteering. Most of my work has been conducted in English, and a lot of it involved communication mixing both French and English. I am a self-taught person with interests in diverse subjects, such as sailing voyages, permaculture, cooking, diving, and developing my electric bike. I developed a strong command of both French and English through years of reading, learning, and living abroad. Additionally, I have studied English/French translation as a compulsory element of my graduate education. For these reasons, I sometimes offer my services as a translator or content-writer. As a professional engineer and consultant, I always make sure that my clients are getting above and beyond what they expect within the allotted time frame. I am currently developing a community-based project involving the reuse of LiCo batteries. Thus, working online is a perfect opportunity for me to be able to acquire enough capital to kickstart my new venture.
Writing has always been my passion; somehow, I've been lucky enough to find a way to fold it into my work. My ability to speak in the voice of the audience, as well as the voice of the brand, has led to success in grant writing, social media marketing and content planning. After an inspiring volunteer experience, I started working for a progressive nonprofit that both accepted, and fostered my desire for an entrepreneurial approach to nonprofit management. I bring almost a decade of experience, enthusiasm, and passion for the world of nonprofit. My projects range from short-term to long-term, and I am also a skilled strategy consultant. My motto has always been "nonprofit at heart, entrepreneurial in spirit." My own personal mission is to leave an organization in better shape than I found it. So far, so good!

Over an 11 year career in writing for organizational development, hundreds of proposals and message-makings for dozens of non-profits, schools, businesses, and government agencies across the US and internationally have translated to millions of new dollars for environmental education and conservation, youth projects, arts initiatives, entrepreneurs, green tech, and even scientific studies. I love to write and work for positive social change all over the globe. I have an MA in Environment and Natural Resources and International Studies as well as BAs in English and Political Science, am academically published, and have diverse and unique experience in all kinds of different fields including business, information technology, anthropology, and ecology.
I enjoy motivating people and have a varied business background. As a result, I have a deep well of resources to draw from when working on particular projects. I have authored two books and love the the creative side of that process. I plan on becoming an accomplished author and speaker; traveling the country, inspiring people to reach their dreams. The potential is there for all of us to become something spectacular. With that stated, I would love to help you with your project needs. I possess a strong command of the English language. I will not be satisfied unless you are. I took my last business venture to 22 million dollars living by that very simple principle. Customer service is an art as much as it is a science. I look forward to serving you.

I will engage and educate your target audience, delivering information with verve and originality, crafting lively narratives to keep them reading. I can transform complicated and technical source material into straightforward and readable copy. I use powerful headers and sub-headers to persuade your target audience to read the copy; highlight features and benefits of your products and services; and identify your company as a top competitor.

And I’d love to work for you.
