The computer keyboard is my best friend and I am at home typing quickly and proficiently (at least 60 wpm). I have an eye for detail, am a perfectionist and very hard-working. I have in-depth research skills. I am very efficient, thorough and reliable. I also have experience in data entry after working at home for another company, entering report data into their templates and then using Visio software to draw corresponding schematics. I am based in Redditch, Worcs (in the Midlands) but can work remotely, and indeed do love working from home.
I am available for any of the following:
- journalism (music is my speciality although I can write, interview and review in other fields. I also have a cruelty-free, vegan-friendly website and like writing about veganism and vegetarianism)
- data entry
- any secretarial and admin work
Area Covered: Redditch, remote/from home

I have conducted many interviews on the telephone and face to face as well as occasionally via email. I have written many reviews - of everything from CDs to concerts to books and DVDs. I also photograph live concert events, and have a City & Guilds in photography. I proofread each issue of my magazine and have a Bookhouse Publishing Training Centre qualification.
