FIELDS OF SPECIALIZATION

Below are the subject areas I generally feel most comfortable with, but I’m willing to try my hand at almost any subject. The more challenging a job is, the more I’ll research it. Though a polymath, I’m especially experienced & knowledgeable in the following fields:
• information technology / Internet / computer hardware / software / telecoms
• medicine, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, biotechnology, healthcare, alternative medicine
• international/US/European patents, no matter how technically complex
• legal contracts, letters, corporation law, corporate finance, international law
• psychology / psychiatry / biopsychology (the focus of my BSc degree course)
• economics / business / finance / accounting / banking and similar fields
• science (many fields, unless the material is extremely specialized in nature)
– I take a keen interest in most aspects of science and technological subjects
• advertising / PR / marketing – I can produce professional-quality, creative and witty copywriting for corporate press releases, promotional product literature, etc.
• Buddhism and East Asian religion, philosophy, mysticism, history, culture, etc.
• health, fitness, nutrition, sports medicine, meditation, alternative therapies, etc.
• NOTE: I DO NOT do any interpreting or on-site translation work; strictly freelance.
• KEY STRENGTHS: Fast worker with versatile experience & high attention to detail.
