I am highly motivated to learn new things, and have an increasing interest in the law, medicine, technology, animal rescue concerns, and healthy eating.

    I am an experienced public/private-sector consultant for businesses seeking government work, serving as a strategist, capture manager, proposal writer, technical writer, researcher, and project manager. My research -- particularly in the area of government procurement -- has led to a large database of state registration requirements which I am always building upon. My specialty is in state and local; however, I will occasionally work on federal responses with the understanding that federal responses are traditionally longer. I do not qualify clients for GSA because of e-Offer requirements and the potential risk you face when hiring a contractor to do this for you. There is no job too small for me a long as it is interesting! I am centrally located in Texas and have completed many projects in other states. TERMS & CONDITIONS 1. I traditionally only accept hourly opportunities but will also accept upfront milestone payments. 2. Requests for proposal work with a final deliverable within five days (for complex proposals) will be bid at a higher rate; please take this into consideration. 3. I usually request a 15 minute discussion prior to accepting an opportunity. 4. I am sensitive to misclassification. If you don't know the difference between a W-2 and W-9 employee just let me know. PLEASE NOTE: I NO LONGER ACCEPT ANY JOBS THAT REQUIRE LESS THAN A 24 HOUR TURNAROUND UNLESS IT IS EDITING OR RED HAT ANALYSIS.  less
