    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

    Tested **Top 10% writing/ Top 10% marketing** I am an online writer with a technical sales, marketing and customer support background. If your business needs an American writer with high attention to detail that is sales-minded while still connecting with people- I should be your top choice. I also manage a team of American writers that assist in creating content that meets my high standards. If you need high quality content written or low-quality content fixed we are up for the job. I love to write, and it shows in my work. I write in a conversational, easy-to-read style that is perfect for the Internet. I'm actually a lot more comfortable writing than I am talking, and in a perfect world, I would write all of the time. I enjoy learning new things, researching new concepts, and explaining complicated topics. I write fast and learn even faster. I hate fluff and I'm allergic to SPAM. My focus is on readability and originality. I am also excellent at making a boring article exciting and writing sales-oriented writing. My niche is health writing. I have training as a health educator, college education in science and nutrition, and personal interest in alternative medicine and wellness. I also love technology with a focus on how technology affects society. In addition to writing, I have worked in technology sales, marketing, and customer service. I am very business oriented, and love working with small businesses. I am the owner of Freelance America, an Odesk agency specializing in top quality American talent. I am seeking paid writing opportunities to challenge my skills and compensate me appropriately. Credited work is preferred, but I will ghostwrite. Rate is dependent on project.  less
