I have enjoyed doing some freelance editing and writing for Sharecare.com over the past few months.
Sharecare is an interactive, social Q&A platform designed to simplify the search for quality healthcare information and help consumers live their healthiest life. Sharecare is empowering users with high-quality, relevant answers to their health questions from multiple expert perspectives and with interactive health and wellness tools to take action on what they’ve learned.
Below are examples of quizzes I compiled for them from their expert resources.
The St. Christopher Project, an organization dedicated to saving lives by improving the safety of drivers everywhere, approached me to write a white paper on the dangers of distracted driving and roadside crashes. Their new and innovative product, the CrashFlasher, is designed to help alert traffic of a roadside vehicle. Of interest to them for this effort were 1) the prevalence of distracted driving due to inattention other than the obvious and well-researched effect of the use of technology and 2) roadside crashes into disabled or stationary vehicles.

The white paper,Crashes Into Disabled or Stopped Vehicles: An Under-Estimated Danger in Today’s Distracted World, is currently in use on their web site as a marketing tool for fleet sales of the product.
As a research scientist at a small biotech start-up, I was Principal Investigator on and helped write several successful Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) grants to NASA and NIH. Total funding for these grants alone was over 2.3 million dollars.
- Defined Biomatrix Model for Human Vascular Studies
- High Resolution Robotic Telemammography System
- Automated PC-Based Spot Detection for 2D Gel Analysis
- A Dynamically Controlled Vapor Diffusion Protein Crystal Growth.
- A Dynamically Controlled Temperature-Induced Protein Crystal Growth System.
- High-throughput micro-crystallization system.
- Raman Spectroscopy as a Non-Invasive Indicator of Protein Crystal Quality.
During my academic career and while at a biotech start-up, several articles were published in peer-reviewed journals. The titles of these papers are:
