Professional/Personal Overview
  I've covered technology, crime and homeland security, but these days, my experience in political and business reporting can come in handy. I've worked in Washington and know how DC and Congress works. I'm in the perfect position to write for DC- or NY-based pubs looking to make sense of what's coming out of DC that will affect Wall Street and Main Street.

I've also written on U.N. peacekeeping missions, new technologies like Google Earth and biometrics, the 2008 presidential elections, battle against avian flu, and career features. Please visit my Web site, www.lizapviana.com, for more.

I've worked for FOXNews.com, AOL News, and National Journal (DC). I am a detailed, thorough reporter and editor with great interviewing and leadership skills. Most of my experience has been with Web-based publications, so I'm comfortable working at a fast pace. I have magazine experience, as well.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch.
