Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

My neurodiversity makes me hyper obsessed with attention to detail, something that's aided me in past jobs. As a former editor, I regularly analyzed and evaluated my staff's work from proper grammar, spelling and narrative consistency, which helped maintain the site's quality. It also means that, when I'm very interested in a subject, I go out of my way to learn all about it so that the articles feel very comprehensive.
