Sauna Says "I'm a freelancer with a range of skills and experiences. I primarily work in the areas of technology, scientific research, and data analysis, but I also sometimes work as a community organizer, teacher, and writer. I'm always on the lookout for part time and/or temporary work, so if you need a contractor with good organizational and communications skills, an analytic mind, and a creative spirit, then I'm your girl."
