    My objective is to assist any organization with my particular skills as a creative influence in any endeavor involving the effective manipulation of the written word. I am rather proficient on the editing, proofing, and enhancement side of things – if it’s broken, I fix it, and in ways that would stun the author of the ‘original’ content. If I am light on the knowledge side, I research. Whatever I can find, I turn it into something far better than what I found. You can surely imagine what I am asked to ‘fix’ here on oDesk, given what this very competitive market generally requires as far as quality or production value is concerned.
