Proofreader, Editor, and Historian

United States - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 1

I've not been writing "for as long as I can remember," but relatively close. Next to history, it's always been my passion. I showed that by challenging myself to write a novel once a year in 30 days, by being published in my university literary magazine, by blogging for a popular tourism website for my town, and helping with historical presentations, but I want more. I want to expand my writing expertise and, hopefully, expand my talent. Editing comes naturally to me, and I enjoy helping others write more fluently. I have a B.S. in European History and am currently employed as a docent at a local history museum. I am interested in continuing historical research in addition to writing.

I like to take the confusing, the elaborate, the most complicated subject and put it into a visually pleasing, easy-to-understand infographic. When it comes to explaining stuff, my job is to research, plan and create your subject matter into an eye-catching, rich and virtual view, that is like no other. So, if you've never heard of an infographic and you would like to know more, I want to show you all about it. I know I can deliver the iCandy you're looking for on your website, trade show booth, email broadcast, employee manual, textbooks and more.
