What I Want:
I want to be part of a team that produces products or tools that make other people’s lives better, easier, or prettier.
What I Do:
- Writing Chameleon: Expert at writing friendly but professional business communications and clear concise tutorials on a number of subjects both creative and technical. I also write engaging content on two personal blogs: Better Than Bullets http://betterthanbullets.com and Stitch and Boots http://stitchandboots.com.
- Social Media Authority: I am on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/angelinawrites, Pinterest http://pinterest.com/stitchandboots/, and Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/40175771@N00/ . I am comfortable navigating all social media platforms but these are the ones whose design feels most intuitive to me.
- Tenacious Researcher: If you want to know how to pluck a pheasant or what the burial laws are in different states I will find out. If you want less macabre information I will find that too because I am a determined researcher of whatever you want to know.
- Teaching Superstar: Once I know something, whatever it is, I can teach it to others because I’m patient, flexible in teaching style, and competent at showing other people how to do things well because it gives me deep personal satisfaction.
