Writing is my passion and this translates into both my creative fiction and copywriting skills. Although I am fairly new to fiction writing, I have successfully sold short stories to popular British magazines and have finished my first novel. Since beginning work via odesk I have taken on a wide variety of projects; producing sales letters, e-books, travel articles, product reviews and many other types of articles. I have a high level of English language skills with an O level qualification grade A (1984).I write regularly for various blogs, am familiar with wordpress and can produce SEO articles with related keywords.My work is always fully edited before submission and I can complete articles in both UK and US English. I fully believe in good employer/contractor relationships and seek to establish ongoing, professional relationships.
I have over twenty years experience in customer service, Arts administration, teaching, voice-over work, management, creative writing, non-profit work, improvisational comedy and public speaking. I hold two BA degrees, one in Communication Studies and one in Theater Performance, and also a Masters degree in Liberal Studies/Interdisciplinary Studies. I have taught privately, in the NC school system and also as an adjunct professor (during which time I served on various thesis committees). Presently I serve as the Artistic Director of a non-profit theater company.I have also been the co-company manager of an improv comedy group for the last 20 years. I have numerous years experience writing press releases, forming curriculum, training employees, leading group activities and workshops (corporate and public sector) and also managed a retail establishment for 5 years. I am comfortable working as part of a team or on my own, and have a strong work ethic, accompanied by a professional attitude and good time management skills. Along with my "real world" experience, I have been a director of plays and variety shows for over 20 years, and have directed casts of over 100 people on quite a few occasions. I have strong leadership skills, enjoy helping others reach their goals and an active imagination that I enjoy applying to projects. I have also organized several fund raisers and charitable events. Regardless of the work setting, whether customer service, writing, management or performance, I posess the ability to be creative and have relied upon my ability to think "outside the box" to the benefit of myself and my employers. I also have a strong sense of humor (which goes a long way towards avoiding experiencing or causing stress!). I enjoy researching and am a quick study of disciplines that are new to me.

Please feel free to contact me about "unusual" jobs as well (legal of course!). Thank you for reading my profile, hope to hear from you!
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, they can delete your email. You have to make the reader WANT to keep reading. That's where I come in. I specialise in a style that's friendly, easy to read, and most importantly, fun. I want the reader to have a good time while they're reading. That way, they can properly pay attention to the important stuff, without having to stifle a yawn. 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 enjoy motivating people and have a varied business background. As a result, I have a deep well of resources to draw from when working on particular projects. I have authored two books and love the the creative side of that process. I plan on becoming an accomplished author and speaker; traveling the country, inspiring people to reach their dreams. The potential is there for all of us to become something spectacular. With that stated, I would love to help you with your project needs. I possess a strong command of the English language. I will not be satisfied unless you are. I took my last business venture to 22 million dollars living by that very simple principle. Customer service is an art as much as it is a science. I look forward to serving you.
I am a multi-talented creative thinker with an academic twist. I have always loved art and writing but I studied Psychology and Economics at University instead. I started my career tutoring young adults as well as children with special needs and only recently returned to my love of art by taking courses in Graphic Design. All of this means that I can draw from many different sources of experience to produce excellent results in a host of different fields. I look forward to working with you!

They have the ability to soothe, hypnotize, agitate, or energize. They are a weapon to be used with care and precision, requiring mastery of both pace and tone. Because of my experiences in the film industry, both with screenwriting and physical production, as well as having nearly 8 years of experience in the field of copywriting, I have become accustomed to free flowing creative interaction, and concise and efficient communication. I have also come to appreciate the necessity for candor, criticism, and honesty when deadlines and budgets simply cannot be compromised. Because businesses and sales are moving more and more away from handshaking and into satellite negotiations, companies, perhaps more than ever, need writers who can make connections, evoke emotion, and incite action through the power of the written word. People see too much "advertising," and will not give you long to excite them, which is why good copywriters are direct, persuasive and efficient. The copywriter is the gateway to your potential customers. But today's copywriter must be more than that. They must be part psychologist, part public relations. They have to be able to translate complex thoughts and business jargon into relatable text any layman can grasp. They need to be teachers, and sellers, and friends to your client base. These necessary elements that a copywriter must possess are my strengths. I spent nearly 15 years in the film industry, which taught me politics and persuasion. I'm a trained life coach, which means I know how to read and inspire people. I have contracted and currently contract for companies like Warner Bros., Knot Standard, Cheap Caribbean, American Express, IHG, Travel + Leisure, MapQuest, Ariba and SAP, which means I'm very experienced in high-level marketing and ad copy. I was a full time screenwriter for more than ten years, which means I know how to produce dynamic elements with pace, rhythm and punch. I have written for film, television commercials/one hour dramas, and sitcoms. I have penned one sheets, taglines, synopses, pitches, professional bios, web content, proposals, press releases, SEO laden content, Meta Descriptions and Title Tags, marketing letters, business proposals, radio spots, game reviews, film reviews, :30 second television ads, and feature articles. I have been published many times online and in print and recently did some freelance work for Groupon. I believe I can offer you an excellent resource for fresh new material given the opportunity to do so. If you have a dropbox account, I have an online digital portfolio that is quite hefty. Please let me know and I’ll send you an invite, or be happy to mail you a hard copy of my portfolio at your request. I also have an extensive portfolio and resume on oDesk. I thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Christopher Kusiak CLK Industries
