Overview

I have just completed my PhD in medical anthropology. I am looking for academic projects in the social sciences (anthropology, psychology, or sociology), medicine, or public health. I have excellent research and analytic skills (qualitative and quantitative), I can write in multiple styles and formats, and I have experience with editorial review. You should hire me because I take pride in my work and always deliver a quality product.

Service Description

My business management career began in the late 1980s and spans a wide range of experiences (I can provide more details if you are interested). My work in eCommerce during the late 1990s and thereafter, along with business consulting, have provided opportunity to work with hundreds of clients from many different industries.

I worked my way up through the ranks of management, then into successful entrepreneurship. I left big corporate life and returned to the University so that I can make the most of my potential. I am currently completing a PhD program in medical anthropology at the University of Alabama. I take pride in my work and I am always at the top of the class. I have excellent research , analytic, and writing skills and I am adaptable to a variety of projects.

I have written many search engine optimized pieces (SEO), and I have also been successful in writing educational funding grants, numerous business plans, business proposals, and various research proposals. Much of the work I have done cannot be presented in my portfolio because of confidentiality issues. For example, I have been contracted by some advertising agencies who own my results. I have also completed a confidential report for the U.S. government (HUD/FEMA) documenting local implementation of a housing-development grant as part of the Alternative Housing Pilot Program (AHPP). I have posted samples of my academic writing for review.

Thank you,

Rick Brown
