Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $13

After four and a half years in academia, circumstance and temperament led me back to the rough and tumble world of the private sector. Since then I've run a small family business and created a start-up of my own. Both have exposed me to a wide spectrum of the business cycle from marketing to accounting, sales to purchasing. With the successful sale of the family business, I'm determined to move my writing abilities back to center stage. I look forward to bringing my experience, creativity, and enthusiasm to your project.
