Service Description

I have utilized my research and writing skills in the field of Holocaust Studies for more than 13 years. I wrote the first complete guidebook to Holocaust Reparations for the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, Inc., on a 3 1/2 week deadline. My work has been featured in the Los Angeles Times, Legal Assistant Today magazine, in a national radio news broadcast by Dan Rather and on the television program "Today in L.A.," on which I was a guest.

I have also researched the Civil War, and have experience with genealogy. Other knowledge includes personal experience with arts and crafts such as cooking, cross stitch, jewelry-making, origami and sculpture. I have won awards in candy-making and sculpture. I also have knowledge of various genres of pop culture, particularly television, soap operas, and alternative country music. Poetry and literature are also areas of certain proficiency, particularly American, Victorian, Slavic and/or Holocaust subjects. I am also a proficient pumpkin-grower and know quite a bit about gardening. Travel and education are also passions, particularly international education exchange.

I am personable, flexible, and easy to get along with in work matters. I hope to work with you soon!
