Seeking writer ( student speaks and writes native English preferred ; but also consider Chinese writers or authors) who enjoys writing bios, stories, fictions, novels, especially biographies in English. Part-time paid hourly / daily. This is mainly to discuss with me or tutor me what's considered a good story from your perspective with selling points, with an aim of potentially collaborating together into finishing it as a biography of how an Asian immigrant from China spent many years studying and living in America through difficult times overcoming cultural and language barriers.
As an active boy I exceled in my elementary and high schools. I won first prize in English and second prize in Math at provincial level as a senior from my high school in my home province, beating hundreds and thousands of other participants. I was asked to enroll in the department of chemistry at Beijing Normal University due to lack of students who applied for this department at the time I applied for this university, and despite my choices of Mathematics and Physics as my major and despite Chemistry as my weakest. As a diligent student I excelled anyway, spending seven year at BNU getting a BSc and a MSc degree, with nearly a dozen research papers published in my name when I graduated from BNU with Boli Liu as my graduate advisor.
I went on to work as a college teacher at Fudan University in Shanghai for over three years. I finally boarded a flight from Shanghai to America on a student Visa with a full scholarship from Texas Tech, then at UCSD, then many years as a diligent chemist at several top notch research labs in scenic La Jolla, California. I even put a heavy desktop computer I just bought on the back of my bike and cycled over quite elevated Mt Soledad from the PC shop in Pacific Beach to my residence near UCSD. I finally got tired of chemistry and taught myself into a software engineer and computer programmer. I earned trust and successfully worked as contractor programmer in America's respectful space agency Johnson Space Center of NASA for over a year, over three years for State of Oregon DHS as programmer, as a contractor programmer for America's honorable Air National Guard cyber forces. I felt proud of being truly an American while serving in building one of NASA JSC, or serving in the plain looked concrete building at McChord Air Force base.
I was able to enter the door of Microsoft Corp as a contractor in 2007 and worked there many times as a contractor and vendor. I became more and more skilled as a data engineer and SQL / ETL developer. I obtained my MCDBA and MCSA certification in 2005 while serving State of Oregon DHS as a DBA and system engineer.

Life is always a challenging journey. I was able to bring my parents to America from rural China. Also my brothers. Thanks to the generous immigration laws of America. And thanks to America and employers or clients for giving me a chance to explore and enhance my intellectual boundaries.
Do you know shorthand, stenography, or some sort of framework to interview me in a very efficient or effective manner, so I could narrate, dictate, and you can record then convert recordings to drafts? What software or program do you use for this?
