Ruby Davy's Summary

I am a writer, broadcaster and voiceover artist with a background in theater, music, and radio. I have worked as a radio broadcaster and voice over artist since 2006, and I also write and maintain a blog that has been recognized by InterNations.org as a "Top Expat Blog." Previous employers have found me to be friendly, hard-working and eager to learn. I'm a native English speaker, but am also fluent in Danish, after spending the past 2 years living in Copenhagen.

I have just arrived in Seattle, WA, and am currently looking for work in the area.
