I have over ten years experience of using Microsoft Word, and have many years experience of typing and word processing. My typing skills are very good and I am fairly quick. I have recently finished a Psychology degree. This involved writing a large number of essays and reports which took a lot of research to complete. As a result I have a lot of research skills and typing skills. As part of my degree I also had to transcribe three 30 minute interviews so I have some experience of transcribing. I managed to do this in a reasonably short space of time although I can't remember exactly how long! I also have spent the last year as an audio typist. This involved receiving audio files on a dictaphone and typing them up into a ready-made template in MS Word. The files were property related, and were inventories of the contents and conditions of houses prior to them being let out to tenants. So I have experience in this field too. I have a lot of experience of data entry into excel. I completed a job years ago for a friend which involved copy and pasting 2000 records into excel. I have recently completed a job on here which involved copy and pasting over 9000 fields from websites into excel. I can copy and paste an average of 630 fields an hour.

I am a 34 year old with many abilities. Song writer, poetry, short stories, singer, jingles, artist - and I'm wanting to apply my talents to further my artistic satisfaction. My style is humurous and witty. After surviving the Black Saturday firestorms I wanted to showcase my gifts but couldnt find the right avenue. I think this is it! Alot of my artwork and poetry journals/short stories were destroyed in the firestorms, so I am having to rebuild my empire!! I write poetry easily, as it seems to drip from my pen to paper. I have had a poem published in a school journal in NZ and cant find it through lack of trying! I write regularly. I was a tattooist in NZ for a couple of years also. If you are looking for someone unique, try me- I can turn my hand to anything. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to ask away!
