I have over twenty years experience editing, copy editing, copy writing for print and online media, books, newsletter, public relations and advertising. Editing was combined with work as a freelance photographer, and T.V. associate production. My educational background in English and art history enhanced my attention to detail, grammar skills as well as interest in literature and history. Spending 15 years living abroad in Europe, the Middle East and the South Caucasus widened my horizons and understanding of international relations and current affairs. Many of the students I taught English as a Second Language, over a five-year period have remained in touch. Eight years as a market research media analyst required reading and writing reports for clients in the banking, finance, consulting, telecom, lobbying groups and food industry. Six years working in retail management and buying cultivated customer service, intrapersonal and leadership skills.
