Ron Rhodes

eLearning Developer, Technical Writer, Voiceover
   United States
  |   Columbus, OH

Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $41

For eighteen years, I have devoted my career to writing marketing and technical copy, e-learning content, corporate training, and ghost-writing. In my current role, I work as an e-learning content author for improveit! 360, but I have also worked as a freelance writer.

Most of my writing involves using an online development tool like Dreamweaver, Captivate, or Flash. But a few of my short-stories have been published on the open market, and I also have graduate-level training in writing and literature.
