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.

I'm a professional multi-media journalist who can write, edit, research, produce, and design high-quality content on almost any topic and for any medium. From creating blog and social media posts to complete marketing communications plans, I have worked with clients including university programs, acupuncturists, chefs, commercial painters, e-commerce sites, news sites and forums, and more. I do not compromise my high ethical standards. Sorry, but I do not accept jobs that involve "ghostwriting" without credit, "spinning" and stealing others' copyrighted work, or other shady practices. What you get with me is a passionate, hard-working, detail-oriented, mass communications expert. What you do not get is someone who will rush the job or be a mindless "yes man" -- if I accept a job then I am committing to give you my best work effort, and that includes sometimes offering suggestions or advice -- getting you the final product you NEED, not just the one you think you want. I generally do not do Skype interviews or meetings for any projects paying less than $1,000. I am happy to answer any questions through ODesk or email, and I am happy to do a trial period for any ongoing positions. Sorry, but the reason I choose to do online freelancing is to make my own schedule and work in my pajamas; if you can't deal with that then best of luck finding someone who is a better fit for you.

VOICE TALENT: With approximately a decade of experience in the world of broadcasting, my on-air expertise extends beyond the camera. My voice can often be heard on the radio, over the Internet, and daily TV news stories.
