    As a freelance writer and editor I have worked online at various intervals over the past five years on different websites writing on several topics. My coporate work experience has been in many industries and roles, with several years in quality assurance as a proofreader and copyeditor. My focus is on the quality of the project for the client's standards and needs, and that was my main role in quality assurance. Through my own work I focus on both the quality of content and presentation of an article or post in my writing, and with my own work I work to make sure that all grammar and content are up-to-standard. I look forward to being able to produce quality work for outside clients again through further freelance work.  less

    Please allow this letter to serve as an inquiry for the available project you are looking to get accomplished. My experience as a writer, lecturer and research analyst make me confident of being the perfect candidate to help you achieve exactly what you are looking for. I have acquired an MSc. in Business Management degree from the renowned university “The University of Sheffield”. Furthermore, I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Rochester Institute of Technology in Applied Arts and Science (concentrations in Business Management, Economics and Statistics). During the course of my studies I have gained knowledge in many different areas such as management skills, economic environment, interpersonal communication and leadership. Furthermore, studies in Human Resources and Accounting for Managers have given me strong base for the respective fields. Attending various conferences and programs on energy, startup business and democracy related issues, has expanded my horizon of understanding the domestic environment as well as being aware of what is going on in the region and around the world. My experience of working as a project coordinator for MDA(Management Development Associates www.seemda.com). has equipped me with a strong base in managing various tasks including facilitating focus groups for strategy development and the preparations of financial reports. Currently I teach management classes at a private college. Besides teaching I am also the head of the library where I lead a team of 3 professionals in managing the library, sorting, updating new issues etc. If given the opportunity I am eager to discuss my potential contribution to your project.  less

    Describe the service in one word: Communication. Better communication is my passion and I invest myself in each project with that goal in mind. As an editor it is my job to make the writer look even better and to make sure the point being made is clear. Good communication has a clear purpose, is error free, and is easily readable. I'll help you connect with your target audience (even if it's broad) and deliver your message in a way that it can be clearly received. I provide content that is informative, interesting, and will keep them coming back for more. Don't put the same reused dribble on your prized webpage, let me offer you quality content that will make you stand out. If you're looking for something more personal or creative don't run away yet. In my personal writing I have a flare for creativity and have found a poetic voice. If you have a story to tell I'd love to help you get it out and onto paper. If you have an idea that you want brought to life, I'm excited to hear it. I study communication, writing, and psychology as personal interests and bring immense insight into each of the projects I work on. I look forward to working with you, Josh  less
