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.

As an anthropologist, I am well versed in cross-cultural perspectives, enabling me to write for diverse audiences. In addition, I have over ten years of experience as a freelance proofreader, editor, and tutor. On the creative side, I love to work with horror, science fiction, and fantasy, though I am certainly open to other genres.

In all areas, I have a meticulous editorial eye for grammar, spelling, formatting, and content.

I have also presented my work at many academic venues, thus having perfected the skill to present any amount of information in a concise, clear, and engaging manner. During my graduate studies, I also regularly wrote grant proposals, and have managed to secure several highly prestigious federal and provincial grants. Over the course of 6 years, I have raised a total of over 130,000$ for my own academic research. My academic experiences have taught me that I genuinely enjoy the process of synthesizing ideas (my own and those of other people) into a compelling narrative. I started working as a freelance writer recently, and have already had experience writing grant proposals for a small non-profit start-up in Toronto, as well as writing and editing a couple of kickstarter projects. I greatly enjoyed this type of work, and look forward to more opportunities to help others with their research and writing needs. I believe that I can effectively apply my curiosity and skills to virtually any field of writing, editing or research.
