Service Description

I have an extensive background spanning over a quarter of a century in the IT industry, as well as a Master's Degree in Computer Science. Yet throughout this time, I harbored a secret desire to be a writer, evidenced only by elaborate comments in source code and brilliant, while totally unappreciated technical proposals and user guides for my programs. The recent economic downturn has given me this opportunity to indulge my long-dormant desires, by joining ELance and obtaining writing contracts to supplement my now-nonexistent income.
