I apply a solutions based approach to solving complex puzzles, and achieving successful systems improvement. I have a natural talent for "out of the box" creative strategies that solve complex puzzles. I love looking at systems and finding ways to improve them, and I also love using my conflict management skills, analytical abilities, critical thinking capabilities, and interpersonal skills to cultivate cross-cultural relationships. Today, this combination is more important than ever. The world is becoming smaller and smaller and people need to be able to reach across cultural divides to solve complex issues that affect the world we live in. Nowhere is this more true than in the healthcare arena. I am currently using my extensive experience as "problem solver extraordinaire" with the Laboratory Informatics Institute where I evaluate and develop training programs for apps in the SciCloud. I work hard to define requirements, plan implementations, and provide superior on going support/training so that you don't have to. I specialize in EHR, LIMS, LIS, HIS, and HL7 apps to name a few. I also specialize in things like regulatory compliance and auditing. I am a one stop solution shop for all your HIT problems. I have spent many years learning, practicing, and finally honing this unique skills set and now I am ready to solve your puzzle. You have a puzzle and I have a solution!

I have spent the last decade making a career out of two of my passions-science education and sports nutrition/training. While I have remained active in the secondary science classroom, I have become a prominent faculty member by serving on various administration committees. I have also significantly evolved my science career outside of the classroom by freelance designing, presenting, and selling labs for a national science company. The other half of my career involves working in the group exercise and personal training management part of several fitness facilities. I am constanly motivating members to maintain their health by teaching aerobic classes, leading nutrition seminars, designing individual health plans, leading membership promotions, and directing the fitness program.
I'm English and have 27 years' writing and editing experience. Self-employed since 2001, I'm good at working at distance with clients and associates across borders, delivering successfully to tight deadlines. Since gaining a Master's degree from the London School of Economics in 1985, I've worked in the public and private sectors in the UK, Belgium and Italy. I've produced a wide range of articles, press releases, speeches, reports, funding applications, programme documents and political briefings. My CV and portfolio highlight my ability to tackle a range of subjects, such as education policy, employment law, golf course architecture, pesticides and water legislation. My client base reflects this versatility: e.g. The Salvation Army, The Professional Golfers' Associations of Europe and Lincolnshire County Council. A large proportion of my written work since 2001 has been competitive bid writing, successfully winning grants from the European Union and UK government. A testimonial from Steve Swan, Director of the UK charity, The Tomorrow's People Trust, states: "Steve has ... an ability to draft in a clear and concise manner ... (&) helped us to win grants over the years for our projects in London, Plymouth, Liverpool and Glasgow."
