    I am an experienced editor ready to help any writer find their own voice. I am a native English speaker and an accomplished researcher, writer, and editor. I have a firm grasp of the mechanics of English, and I study often to constantly refresh and refine my understanding of various writing styles and grammatical rules. As a professor, I teach writing intensive humanities and history courses, so editing student essays and research papers is my daily work. I strive to provide for my student writers and for my oDesk clients an effective creative process that relies on both writer's and editor's attention to detail. I promote getting maximum impact within rigid word-count parameters. I am a published author and my work can be viewed in academic journals and the online arts magazine found at KCMetropolis.org. Certainly I can write in an academic tone, with comprehensive research to support my points; however, my skills and interests are broad. My work in the arts has fostered a colorful and vibrant writing style that can be tailored to most any subject and any requirement. Thanks for considering me as a partner on your projects!  less

    I have two years of experience as a writer and editor for the SportPulse website. I also contribute a monthly column for the UK-based Paddock Magazine.

Besides my work as a part-time sports journalist, I have also contributed to the corporate communication efforts of the software development company Wakoopa. I hold a BA degree in Business Administration and Mathematics and a MSc degree in Marketing Research, so my knowledge of statistics is also quite good.  less
