I believe that my over six years` experience as a freelance business journalist and my subsequent training in Sub-Editing and Design at the London School of Journalism fully qualifies me for the position of a Content News Manager at The SOP.
I possess excellent researching, analytical, interviewing, writing and subbing skills developed over more than six years as a freelance feature and business writer and editor that enable me to work and deliver under pressure to beat tight deadlines while keeping an eye for accurate, balanced and clear editorial copy.
I am a team player in the editorial department as I have worked under some of the most demanding editors in Kenya, the US, the UK and Canada by delivering new editorial ideas as well as working with editorial ideas and copy generated by other writers and editors. My multi-tasking skills further enable me to produce and design web copy for web pages and online publications such as e-zines and websites.
I am published in authoritative business magazines and websites such as Jane`s Airport Review, Packaging Magazine, B/OSS World Magazine, Composites Manufacturing, Sign Business Magazine, Ground Support Magazine, www.billingworld.com, www.intertechpira.com, Biofuels Magazine, Airlines Magazine amongst others.
My training in Sub-Editing and Design at the London School of Journalism has equipped me with subbing and proofing skills to edit copy for publication, crop, edit and write appropriate picture captions and catchy editorial headlines. I have successfully edited copy written by industry experts as well as freelance journalists for the Chicago-based Stylus Communications and successfully written and edited copy and photographs for the ninth edition of Ziara Magazine and newsletter.
I have a flair for writing and working with editorial copy as well as an eye for laying out copy and graphics in a publication. I possess working knowledge of various industry page design and layout applications such as Adobe InDesign and QuarkXPress and photo and graphics editing applications such as Adobe PhotoShop and Adobe Illustrator.
