I began writing during my 30 year career in information technology as an integral part of my projects. Much of this written work was technical in nature. Some was created for providing instruction to the average person esp. pertaining to user manuals and helpful tips. To branch out, I've also written for various web sites. The types, purpose, targeted audience and educational level of these writing projects ranges widely, from small limited-size topic-focused articles, do-it-yourself practical instructions, to subject research. My interests are diverse. The more I know, the more life becomes a journey of knowledge. Sharing that knowledge or the results of research on a given topic is what I enjoy. It's amazing how much people from all over appreciate finding one of my articles on-line. Looking forward to working with you. My service ought to be your delight. That's my aim. The rate provided in my profile is only a general rate. So, the various writing and editing projects for which I am available are: Technical (Heavy Geek $30/hr and User $15/hr) Editing / Proofing $9/hr Format Improvements $12 to $15/hr Articles $7 to $9/hr Blogs $10/hr Creative $7/hr Comedy $15/hr Content $7 to $9 depending on specs Advertisements $15/hr Proposals / Quotes / Bids $25/hr Speeches $25/hr Business Reporting $35/hr ----- Some of my published works: http://mortgage.lovetoknow.com/Commercial_Mortgage_Loans http://mortgage.lovetoknow.com/Common_Mortgage_Lead_Questions http://mortgage.lovetoknow.com/Mortgage_Loan_Leads http://athingforcars.com/care-repair/jump-start-a-car/ ----- I also do web site development in LAMP. However, I'm currently booked solid in this skill set.

I don't believe there's any need for a resume, so i'll briefly tell you about myself. I'm a 32 year old male who's loved writing ever since fifth grade where I won an essay contest. Who knew Robert Fulton and his captivating steamboat would be my stepping stone into creative writing. Then came graduations from Sonoma State University with a degree in creative writing; followed by a little degree with a writers group dealing with short stories. And now I own a deli. Enter sarcasm about the perfect transition from English major to Deli owner here! Anyway, an opportunity to write for a living is something I greatly want and would appreciate. If you'd like to see a sample of my writing please check this out :http://www.biteclubeats.com/2010/11/paolos-ravioli-deli-closing.html
