    As a graduate of Business Economics, I am very keen in terms of researching and writing papers.

    Sourcing and organizing quality information/data is what I love to do most. For me the beauty lies in not only sourcing the right information but also presenting in such a way as to give it meaning and help my client to change mere information into usable knowledge. I specialize in desktop research, data collection and analysis, while applying my writing skills to write outstanding, well researched reports. Preparing presentations or presentation notes for my clients has become one of the skills many rely on, especially when deadlines are looming. As web designer I focus on content rich sites using HTML or CMS design to build effective websites. As consultant my focus is on e-waste and hazardous waste management in Africa and I have been involved in research and report writing on several energy efficiency and renewable energy projects.  less
