Human Encyclopedia/Research


30 per hour - Virtual OK - Posted Jan 22, 2018

If you want to understand something better, I can work up some videos, readings, resources on any topic. I can do background research & write up a summary of recent developments. Like a personalized version of an explainer video. I am particularly good with:
Curriculum Design
Conflict Resolution
Supervision/management issues
Group dynamics/organizational development
Brain storming/Problem solving
Social Issues & Politics (US)
Global geography/history
Chronic pain/illness/caregiving/HIV
Nonprofit tech/
Virtual events/moderation/zoom
Integral theory/systems thinking
Sustainability/renewable energy
Social justice
Disaster prep/resilience

Looking at my other services will give you an idea of my range. If it's outside my experience, I will come up with resources for you to explore.
If you want to understand the war in ukraine, why your grandson's generation are still living with their parents and can't find a job. If a loved one has a particular type of cancer and you want to understand etc.

I have experience with medical, tech, academic, political, social service and linguistic arenas

Send me a quick description/proposal of what you're looking for, in what arena, and what the final product should look like. I am not looking to do simple data entry projects, compile a list or do your boring grunt work you're trying to outsource. More looking to help you brainstorm, discover resources, learn what current scientific or academic investigations have discovered lately or solve a problem.

Training & Qualifications

Some of my friends call me the human encyclopedia. I was raised by a genius who instilled an insaitable curiosity in me

And have done research for multiple administrative jobs including working in a teaching hospital so i'm familiar with some of the techniques and can comprehend basic medical summaries.

I can scan & research in multiple langauges.

Availability & Preferences

I freelance so my schedule is flexible. Book time with me here, in green:

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

See the tone is his review versus mine? His message: “sorry again, I need more than a couple hours notice if you want to schedule tomorrow or after.... i 'm no longer available this afternoon. this have been overly comp,licated but we should be able to make it work. thanks marty” I followed directions and I did send my resume. After his message, I went to check and my resume was uploaded but didnt send and he never said anything until his review so kinda catty. So based on his review, he seems mean hearted- do not more

He has a online calendar that said he was available but cancelled 3 times on me 😢. Never got to meet up with him. I have a tight schedule so when I s...chedule a time and he cancels it’s a huge inconvenience to me. But it’s okay! Hopefully it works out for someone else. I will keep looking for the well needed support. show more
