    After 15 years as a newspaper reporter, I want to put my research, writing and editing skills to work for my own benefit. I have extensive background in government, public finance and history along with the ability to spin a great feature story. I can write clear, concise copy on deadline. If you already have written it, I can both proofread and edit your writing. (They are different skillsets and not everyone can do both.) I also can teach you how to be a better writer. As far as research, I don't know everything but I do know where to find everything beyond just mass data scraping. I won a research award long before the Internet. I also can take all that information and condense to something the average reader can understand.  less
