Matopas 

Having left Zimbabwe just over 5 years ago, I have started freeIancing, after 27 years in IT. I am an experienced IT support / systems person, capable of broadly skilled technical, analytical and managerial roles, with an excellent command of both written and spoken English. Currently I am applying my skills to internet research and reporting. My immediate target is to get up to speed on Proofreading and Technical Writing, as I see that there is scope here to apply the expertise I have acquired over the past twenty years.
