Writer/Editor

United States - Last active: 8 days ago - Tests: 3

I seek interesting project work, preferably as an editor, but not exclusive to that line of work. A successful editor and writer (including technical writing) and technical analyst, I possess a wide range of related experiences. My published works include a book in the "Dummies" series, regular column in The New York Times, articles, a reference CD-ROM, training courses, and manuals. My web experience ranges from developing and maintaining the highly acclaimed philatelic reference site AskPhil.Org, to two different sites on the Bank of America Intranet, to a short-lived webzine some years ago. As a former public relations practitioner, my experience ranges from PR director of a small, liberal arts college to spokesman to the major media for a hobby industry. I have a Six Sigma Green Belt, Green Belt with DFSS, and Public Relations Society of America accreditation.

Author // Speaker // Writer

United States - Last active: 10 days ago - Tests: 2

I enjoy motivating people and have a varied business background. As a result, I have a deep well of resources to draw from when working on particular projects. I have authored two books and love the the creative side of that process. I plan on becoming an accomplished author and speaker; traveling the country, inspiring people to reach their dreams. The potential is there for all of us to become something spectacular. With that stated, I would love to help you with your project needs. I possess a strong command of the English language. I will not be satisfied unless you are. I took my last business venture to 22 million dollars living by that very simple principle. Customer service is an art as much as it is a science. I look forward to serving you.
