I have many years experience writing for websites, both in my professional life working at national and international sporting organisations in the NRL, Super Rugby and Cricket Australia; and my own personal website - www.travellingapples.com. Since joining oDesk I have written for clients in a wide variety of industries including automotive, retail, health and fitness, real estate, sport and education. As you can see from my ratings and comments I am more than capable of producing high quality work across a wide range of areas. I have a Bachelor of Education Degree and was a schoolteacher for five years before embarking on a nine year career working in professional sport as a media manager, digital media manager and General Manager of Communications. I then started my own business from scratch, which was a first for me, before selling it to help fund my family's current global nomadic adventure. I also have extensive experience managing social media platforms, particularly Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I established the Melbourne Storm's social media platforms, building the Facebook following to over 110,000. I was also contracted by Etihad Stadium in Melbourne in 2013 to establish their social media presence, with particular focus on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, with huge success.
One thing businesses absolutely must understand if they want to succeed as businesses: your customers don't have to read anything if the writing is bad. They can click away from your website, put your sales letter in the trash with the rest of the junk mail, or delete your email. You have to make the reader WANT to keep reading. That's where I come in. I specialize in a style that's friendly, easy to read, and most importantly, fun. I want the reader to enjoy themselves while they're reading. That way, they can properly pay attention to the important stuff, without having to stifle a yawn. Because here's what all sales copy comes down to: using words to convince people to do something. And if you're going to be asking them to do something, don't you want them to be having a good time while you ask? I can help you to get inside the heads of your clients and customers and communicate directly with them. I can help you truly engage with your audience. I have been copywriting for more than 4 years, and I have plenty of experience up my sleeves. I've done everything from product descriptions to newsletters, from articles to brochures. I know how to get you the conversions you want and I have the history to back it up. Check out my portfolio if you want to see what I can do. I've got a broad range of skills, so hit me up! I'll be happy to work with you to get the results you want.
I am an experienced corporate professional (with military experience as a junior officer) that possesses strong organizational, writing and analytical skills. I have a Bachelors of Business Administration (BBA) from Texas A&M University - Kingsville and was a member of the Army ROTC program where I was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army upon graduation. I spent 4 years as an Army officer and have a depth of knowledge of military writing style, jargon and acronyms. I have spent the past seven years working for a Fortune 100 company (railway transportation) and the past 3 years have been spent working as an administrative director for the largest division in my company (4000 employees) where I created formal responses and letters to upper management within my company, labor organizations we work with, individual employees as well as members of surrounding communities our company operates in. I have also traveled abroad (Russia, Cyprus, Spain, Germany, Armenia, Hungary, Austria, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Iraq, Oman, Pakistan, Mexico and Canada) and understand various cultures around the world. My position also required that I become the resident expert regarding the organized labor contracts that existed within my company. At any given time, I have been required to work with employee work groups that have five different labor contracts among them, each with specific work, pay and discipline requirements. I was responsible for editing a bi-monthly newsletter sent out to our employees, the web content for our division website and the weekly broadcasts that were sent via internal television channels. I also have extensive experience reviewing transcripts from disciplinary investigations within my company. My position as director of administration also made me an informal assistant to the general manager for my division (a railroad GM is equivalent to a vice president in most other companies) and performed tasks for him such as managing his calendar and travel plans, writing letters and emails on his behalf and representing him at meetings.

They say if you want something done fast, well and cheap, the best you’ll ever get is two out of three. However, you can get your marketing content creation, copywriting and ghostwriting needs met fast, well and affordably – if you hire me. As a copywriter/editor, Fortune-500-executive speechwriter and marketing communications manager with 18+ years of experience, I’m at my best when delivering compelling, crystal-clear content that keeps audiences hooked. As a creative writer with produced stage and television credits, I’m called to breathe new life into subject matter previously considered dry, boring or terminally unexciting. I’ve spent most of my career supporting the efforts of large corporations (Sony, Disney, News Corporation, BNY/Mellon and Wells Fargo). Now I’m focused on writing and publishing e-books and other content focused on making people’s lives better, as well as ghostwriting for fellow author-publisher-entrepreneurs and supporting small-to-medium-sized businesses in effectively communicating to their audiences. (I’m also available for C-Level speechwriting, corporate communications strategy and marcom planning at different rates.) In short, please call on me to deliver the quality content or copy you need at any stage of your project, from initial concept to content creation to marketing and PR materials. Thank you for considering me and best of luck to you in your endeavors.
