To whom it may concern: I have over 22 years experience as an educator, writer, an editor. Specifically, as a humanities lecturer of Monash University's Jakarta Campus I taught Media Studies, Language Use in the Media, Intro to Communications, Academic Writing, Business Report Writing, and so on. I have also taught Creative Writing in private schools in Jakarta, such as the Jakarta International Korean School, and Pa Hoa Chinese School. Moreover, I have taught the journalists of Kompas (an Indonesian nationally syndicated newspaper), as well as the employees of PT. Gramedia (the premier Indonesian publishing house). As a writer, editor, and translator I have written for the Jakarta Post (Indonesia's oldest nationally syndicated English newspaper), "The Listening Post", American Language Training's company newsletter), as well as having started an autobiography entitled "A Life of Perfect Error", for which, in 2010, I received an offer for it to be published in a New Zealand literary publication (Editor: Steven Wes). My editing and translating experience includes editing the official correspondence of the Dean of Monash University-Jakarta Campus. Furthermore, I translated from Indonesian to English the Doctorate and Master's brochures of the University of Indonesia's Dean of the Graduate and Post-Graduate Business Management and Economics Faculty, in addition to Dean's letters of recommendation. Moreover, I have edited and translated investment booklets for the Regent of Keerom Regency in Irian Jaya Barat, Indonesia. In short, I am able to bring to any editing task experience drawn from a variety of writing backgrounds. Finally, I am acquainted with great writers stretching back to antiquity and encompassing most cultures (in the 1980s I regulary subscribed to "Short Story International").
