I'm a quick-change artist all wrapped up in the written word, swiftly juggling serious reports, fun features, personal essays, and objective reviews for newspapers, magazines and websites with persistence, clarity, and accuracy. I also edit columns and books when I am not writing for them. And I am schooled in social media, having conceived, developed, and marketed a Facebook Page for a regional dance troupe.
My topics run the gamut -- family, education, religion, travel, health, beauty, books -- and I am particularly familiar with autism, psychology, young adult issues, divorce, female empowerment, and Latin and South Florida cultures. And I always "give good lede." Please see www.caranissman.com for more information about me. I look forward to working with you!

Foreign Language Skills
I am not a native speaker, but I speak, write, and read Spanish proficiently, having studied Spanish literature at Boston University and lived in South Florida for nearly a decade. I am immersed in the immigrant culture here.
I can handle most of what you throw at me on my iMac, with OS X Version 10.6.5, iLife '11, Adobe CS5, Word, Excel, and other applications. Just ask me!
I have a desktop, a laptop, film and digital cameras, a digital voice recorder, and a smart phone.
