    As with anyone, my career goals are to find a job that provides me with the means to support my family financially. I look for work that is engaging and worthwhile. I have had experience in many fields and consider myself a fluent and capable writer. Previous occupations I have held include, customer service, sales, Military and writer. I have written a few articles for my personal website that I hope to publish soon. I look at this as an opportunity to strengthen my writing skills and build up a good portfolio for future occupational engagements. As with anything, there is always more you can learn and always different ways in which to improve one's self.  less

    I am a musician, writer, and editor who works equally well in creative, academic, and professional contexts. I work happily with clients with diverse skill sets, from professional philosophers and novelists to ESL business writers to musicians of all backgrounds. My training is in philosophy, and so my ear is forever tuned to the conceptual richness of your project. Whether producing original material or working to perfect yours, I will work with you to enact your ideas quickly and creatively. I believe that it is impossible to anesthetize the creative process – creation is never transparent. Good freelancing is not invisible but aesthetically felicitous. To that end, I work efficiently, attentively, and am careful never to become stale, rigid, or editorially oppressive. What I do is, I believe, an art of creation rather than of convention, an art of the ear rather than of the rule.  less
