RssWriter, editor, innovator who accepts nothing less than the best

I'd like to leverage my four years of experience abroad into a full-time position in publishing. My past experience is in teaching, which gave me valuable communicating skills, but I'm really excited by possibilities in international sales or editorial positions, as I feel I excel in these roles. I thrive on crafting creative copy for projects, I delight in a diverse environment, and my academic/teaching background gives me an edge over most applicants for similar positions.
