    I am a bachelor certified creative writer with experience in blogging, short stories, editing and more. I love to pull the beauty out of anything with the written word…even if it is someone else's words to begin with. Language is used everywhere and by everyone, so I think it should be memorable. I also have an eye for the elements around me; capturing any notorious moments with my Nikon camera. As well as snapping the picture, I am fully functional in editing photos to give them a clean and crisp finish.  less

    I've been immersed in the whimsical world of writing since childhood. My father was a journalist, and both parents always encouraged me to read. I think reading inspired me to create my own stories - I wanted to write something just as awesome and exciting as the authors I admired. I do have a Bachelor's degree in public relations, so I'm familiar with the workings of media writing, but the creative style still holds a special place in my heart. I am also in the process of working on a Master's degree in museum studies, and non-profit work.Currently, I work on my own stories, hoping to one day achieve publication. As far as editing, I worked all four years of my undergrad at my college's writing center helping other students developing their writing skills, editing, and just providing encouragement. I believe anybody can write. We all have a story to tell, now it's time to step forward and release it to the world.  less

    I’m interested in different kinds of projects connected with translations, editing and proofreading ( from English into Russian). The translation pair is very important for me as for a Russian native speaker and a person who have been studying English for more than 12 years. I’ve learnt to estimate the significance of good translations, to see and solve many translation problems in translating and interpreting from English into Russian (and vice versa). Of course, it’s better to (and one should) translate in a language you were born with. I believe that I can contribute to the adaptation of your products, services and texts for the Russian market. All my previous work experience was connected with my specialization: Linguistics. Eager to improve my skills and gain knowledge not only in my professional field but in many others. Hard-working, comunicative, creative. Aim for self-improvement in life and at work.Have an eye for detail. Quick learner.  less
