I have been a freelancer most of my life excepting for the seven years I spent working for an Indian, English-language newspaper. I have a PhD in modern French literature, obtained from the University of Paris 7, which gives me native speaker fluency in this language. Also I worked as a paid freelance translator in Paris for over three years, working for an NGO that dealt with migrants, an experience that I will cherish for the rest of my life. I have an equally compelling experience in editing, having, as I said, worked for the media and, subsequently, for a small American publisher based out of Salt Lake City, Utah. I have collected many a positive review in my career as a freelancer, so far. I hope to let my work speak for itself, here, at freelancer.com.

    “Big time waster. He uses his mother's name to give excuses. Irresponsible and time waster. If you will hire him, he will destroy your business. You need to be sure of one thing, you cant hire him in any case. Whatever the situation is, just avoid him. I am attaching proof that he is a time waster. PROOF: ”
