About Me

I'm an online English teacher looking for writing assignments. My teaching hours are totally under my control so I have the time, skills and drive to complete a writing assignment whenever I take one. 


For about 4 years before I became a teacher I worked at a local news station in Tampa, Florida (WTSP 10News) as a Web Producer and Content Editor. News, be it local or national, always moves at a breakneck speed and this is where I honed my skills as an editor and writer. I learned the importance of being fast and being correct go hand in hand. No reader wants one without the other. 

Now I would like to get back into the world of writing and editing but not necessarily for news. I have lots of experience with press releases and explanatory articles.
