Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $10

As a published author with a Bachelors degree in English, coupled with a very broad understanding across the IT spectrum including hardware and loads of software packages and operating systems I have lots to offer as far as any administration, data capturing, writing, transcribing or copy writing is concerned.

I am good at researching and writing both technical, informational or any other subject in demand, adding my personal flair to it or adapting to the subject at hand. I read into and understand subject matters quite easily.
