Hello! I am a Librarian at Johns Hopkins University. I work mainly with graduate and doctoral students and faculty assisting them with research, research skills, academic citation, and presentations. I have also maintained a literary blog where I reviewed books and worked with authors and publishers to promote new books. At Johns Hopkins I work with faculty and students in the following areas of study: Business, Education, Biotechnology, Museum Studies, and Engineering. I love working with such a diverse group of subjects as well as high level students because they give me such varied areas to research. No two research questions are ever the same! I became a Librarian because I love to teach, I love to read, and I love to research. I'm an expert at both database research as well as standard internet searches. And you're just as likely to find me running them through my computer as my phone. I'm always one search away from the answer. My love of reading led to maintaining a blog for a number of years. I focused on Young Adult, Romance, and General Fiction books; giving reviews and booktalks for the use of the general public and other librarians. I worked with a number of publishers and authors to promote new book releases. This just goes to show that my undergraduate work in literature found it's way into my semi-professional life. I am looking for work that will complement my work as a librarian. I would love to read, write, or research. I find these tasks fulfilling in both my professional and personal life - and I would love to put my skills to work for you. Computer Skills: • Software (IBM and MAC environments): Microsoft Windows® and Office products, WordPerfect, Photoshop, iLife, iMovie, and various iPad apps. Adept at using Follett and Horizon systems. • Experienced working with Blackboard, LibGuides, ELC, My Backpack, Senior Systems. • Knowledgeable in teaching Internet searching as well as all major Database Platforms. • Expert in creating various Wikis and Blogs; working knowledge of HTML.

Hello people!! I'm just a guy, who is good, very good, very very good with the social media. When I realized the many opportunities that they have to offer, I started specializing on their ways and now I can promote your page/site/brand/band, whatever, and take you to the top!! Moreover, I have a diploma in Civil Engineering. I have a lot of energy and willingness to make it through! I can make it over new environments and work without experience on new fields. I can adjust easily!!
I am an experienced and skilled writer, capable of communicating with a variety of audiences and in an array of voices, styles, and formats. Over the past six years, I have worked with executives, entrepreneurs, industry experts, and many other professionals in writing and publishing eBooks, print books, web content, blogs, newspaper articles, and more. My objective is to craft communicative written materials to the exact specifications, expectations, and deadlines of my clients.
I am an experienced editor, writer, proofreader, and marketing professional with an excellent work ethic and "I can do" attitude. Self-motivated, organized and deadline-driven, I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table gained in various settings over 30 years. I have earned a 5 star rating on oDesk and intend to keep it by using excellent research, writing and editing skills to deliver quality work for my clients. Whether I design, write and produce promotional materials for your business, SEO copy for your website, or help you polish an article, blog, short story or novel, every project receives my best effort. I am detailed, motivated, driven to succeed and take pride in my work. I will consider your project my project, and do my utmost to make you happy.
Over the past 30 years I have written in every position ever held. Out of college I was a professional journalist, writing features, special sections, news, and every other type of writing associated with a daily paper. In later positions I've done editing, copywriting, advertising writing, script writing, blogging, newsletters, brochures, and have written two published books. In 2000 I wrote Surviving The Flesh Eating Bacteria, published by Penguin Putnam and in 2004 I wrote "How to Build a Miniature Gingerbread House" published by Running Press. I have followed several career paths, but writing has been a part of all of them. My most recent career as a Realtor has afforded me writing opportunities in web site content, newsletters, advertising copy, blogging, and proposal writing. I also keep up my skills with feature writing and a book I am working on. I have been building web pages since 1994 and still maintain several. I have a good work ethic, am organized, fast, reliable and conscientious.
TRANSCRIPTION - oDesk is one of my clients! Transcription is not merely typing what you think you hear. This is a common misconception. Rather, it involves first active listening, then critical thinking, sometimes researching, and only then typing. So if you want a quality product, I am the person for you. I have extensive experience transcribing content from a vast array of disciplines and industries, in multiple styles (from strict verbatim to edited for improved readability), and with a variety of formats. An hour-long audio can sometimes translate into a 40-page transcript. In many projects, I am sometimes asked to supplement the transcript with summaries to condense the material down into a document only several pages long. I may do this for you as well if you like. OTHER SERVICES While the majority of my work on oDesk has revolved around transcription, I also have significant experience with the following: • Customer support • Helpdesk management: Freshdesk, Zendesk • Process-handling: Magento, Saasu • Copyediting and Proofreading • Virtual-assisting (administrative tasks) • Web research • Calendaring PERSONAL As for a little bit about my academic background, I hold a degree in physiological science from UCLA, a renowned research institution in the United States, where I grew up for 22 years. Then I earned a nursing degree and license in the Philippines. Personally, I am a contemplative with a deep well of creativity. I am usually brimming with thoughtful questions to ask and innovative ideas to share. I believe that my inquisitive nature is my greatest asset. So give me any box, and I will enclose myself in it, then think and work outside of it, and give it back to you containing whatever output you need. Contact me. Connect with me. Let us have a shared experience, and I guarantee you that I will do everything in my power to make it a positive one.

Currently working in a private Spanish language academy as the bilingual subdirector, I am hoping to expand my boundaries and utilize my skills on platforms that go beyond the walls of classrooms and offices. I have a BA in English Literature and a Masters of Education in Secondary Ed. and Communication Arts. I've done everything from call center work to tutoring (both online and in person), creating educational modules, doing transcription, teaching in public schools, and directing curriculum. My writing skills are strong, my interpersonal skills are fabulous, and my abilities to focus and be patient are (as you can imagine from a former middle school teacher) tantamount to that of a super hero. I also speak Spanish. I would love to work on your next project!
