Service Description

I am currently employed as a proofreader and editor at a financial printer. They hire only the best, as the strict guidelines of the financial world means that misplacing a decimal point or comma, or misspelling a word, can be disastrous for the company and the printer. I apply these same strict standards to my freelancing work, as the small personal client is no less important than the multinational companies I provide services for on a daily basis.

Before working in the publishing world, I developed knowledge of a variety of subjects through experience.

I have worked in the entertainment industry, as a sound board operator, lighting board operator, set-up/tear-down worker and even as a bouncer. I have worked in the food and beverage industry, working my way up from a bouncer/part-time cook to manager of the bar before departing for new challenges. I have worked in the field of residential and industrial painting as well, providing construction companies and independent contractors with hints and tip on paint, equipment, and trying different processes to get better results.

Aside from my work experience, I also gained a variety of experiences through education and extra-curricular work. With a B.S. in Communications and a B.S. in Business, and a minor in History and additional coursework in Political Science, I came...
