About Me

I am an author of more than 15 books with topics including self-help, inspirational, religious and poetry. I also write on Medium, Substack and my own websites. Being a CPA and a former auditor, I also have experience writing business, personal finance and other technical articles.

I have more than 10 years of experience in blogging and freelance writing. This experience has taught me various skills I needed to learn online such as creating SEO-optimized posts, managing newsletter subscriptions, and using the various features of a web host provider. I have also learned about advertising, marketing online and social media management.

Before working as a blogger and freelance writer, I have had more than twelve years of experience in internal/risk-based audit.

My unique combination of creative and technical skills has a strong impact on my present endeavor as a freelance and technical writer. Having a solid background as an auditor and a risk officer, I am knowledgeable in business and financial areas. I am also adept in quickly familiarizing myself with a new assignment and in learning new technical skills like various computer applications.

My keen understanding of computer applications also enabled me to develop my own Android applications that have been downloaded by more than 500,000 users.
