Service Description

I am one person working out of my home in Sedona, Arizona. While I am only starting my online freelance work, I am certain that my skills will allow me to complete projects in a quick, efficient, and highly professional manner.

I enjoy writing, research, and editing and have a lot of experience giving constructive criticism on creative and academic work. I have often used these skills to help fellow students, but am looking to market my skills to a wider clientele, as well as continually gain experience and increase my knowledge and abilities.

I am currently employed part-time and have a lot of free time to devote to freelance projects. I promise prompt turnaround times and quality work. I am committed to providing excellent products and services and will do so by submitting thorough updates and maintaining open lines of communication with my employers.

I am currently writing a weekly blog article on Native American issues. You can view the blog at http://www.mahpiyaska.com/WEBPROTECT-neweyes.htm however, it requires a free membership for you to log in. An example of this work is also available in my portfolio.
