"YOU" provide the source and subject; and "I" will provide the copy - with clarity and/or creativity!
I am seeking freelance or part-time opportunities as a writer of articles and/or blogs! Please read below for other ways and dimensions that I may assist you in your endeavors as I have a diverse background and credentials - professionally, personally and academically!
Love to learn, travel, write and read; and serve a couple organizations as a mentor, volunteer and/or teacher in some capacity. In addition, I actually teach elementary grades as a substitute teacher since being downsized two years ago from a large multinational law firm.
Since I enjoy using both sides of my brain - I have worked simultaneously and consistently as an employee/entrepreneur. At present, I am writing two books and embarking on another journey to produce yet another documentary project.
In 1998, I attended the Cannes Film Festival and took advantage of the opportunity to present one of my previous multimedia accomplishments - a documentary that I wrote, edited, produced and distributed as a marketing and fundraising resource for St. Augustine's Episcopal Church located in lower Manhattan (a former parish of Trinity Church on Wall Street) for its Slave Gallery Project under the auspices of the Lower East Side Tenement Museum.
My background consists of extensive experience within corporate and creative environments - providing high-level administrative, legal ministerial and technical assistance, as well as performing within high-energy cultures such as those within the entertainment, broadcasting and marketing environments as talent, production or public relations source. Previous titles include legal secretary, executive /administrative or legal assistant, international law office manager, multimedia consultant and event planner. My interests are as diverse as my experience and credentials. My academic degrees and studies are in Liberal Arts, Communications Arts and Media Management.
My legal and securities corporate background is inclusive of database management, research and data analysis, coordination of meeting and event scheduling, workflow efficiency and performing as a notary public for the State of New York. Demonstrated personal integrity by performing and delivering exceptional and unique service coupled with strict adherence to the highest degree of confidentiality of firm’s management, client base and client-related matters.
On the creative side, I have created and produced several multimedia products (video /audio /brochures and newsletters) for a diverse group of clientele ranging from educational and cultural institutions as well as prominent individuals; and have developed pr/marketing strategies which enhanced my client's corporate exposure, capital fundraisers and/or community good will/awareness. I have served as a hostess, Mistress of Ceremonies and guest speaker for numerous organizations and institutions in a diversified array of venues and formats because I plan, produce and present special events at various levels from intimate gatherings to mass audiences. These settings and formats include receptions/parties of all types, meetings/ conferences to R&B concerts! I have also been solicited by, and have participated in, formal and informal focus groups.
Clients, in large part, are individuals, organizations and small businesses. I am the recipient of numerous Awards and Honors for my Civic, Philanthropic and Professional Endeavors and Achievements.
