    I deliver apt copy, buzz-worthy stories, and original commentary. Experienced writing scripts, blogs, whitepapers, press releases, and more, I offer style and substance within a number of mediums. From semantics to subtext, my work is your work. Topics I've covered include medicine, finance, relationship advice, politics, landscaping marketing, travel, entertainment, nutrition, and technology. While writing is my passion, learning is my lifelong mission. I'm up for any subject, no matter how bizarre or mundane. I've been a full time freelancer since 2011, when I obtained my B.S. in History from the University of Oregon. There I took too many classes for my own good, continued my illustrious extracurricular of competitive debate, gained entry to the Kidd Tutorial for creative writing, made dean's list a few times, and was nominated for the Undergraduate Research Award. I prefer hourly compensation. That mentioned, my base rates are: Rewrites: $.03/word Edits and emails: $.05/word Blogs, creative fiction, and academic work: $.06/word Miscellaneous promotional copy and newsletters: $.07/word Webpage copy: $.1/word Scripts: $.2/word Do not contact me if you're unwilling to pay these rates nor use the hourly system.  less

    Don’t let the title mislead you. As the Merchant of Words, I’m not related to the Merchant of Venice. To be honest, Shakespeare never appealed to me. Neither did academics. Thus, I just about managed to complete my schooling – or let’s just say that my teachers got fed up of me. After all, I was an immense strain on their conscience. It couldn’t have been easy deciding where I deserved fractional marks for an answer i.e. a 0.3 here or a 0.6 there etc., could it? Suffice it to say that my academic success in school resembled a village after a Mongol raid. A few years later, I began working as a software developer. In that time, I learnt that I could create software for an accounting system. Considering that all I knew about accounting was the definition of debit and credit, it was an educational achievement on the job. I also learned how to travel to various parts of the city. An online job that taught me several offline things! Later, I found myself applying for an executive position to answer e-mail queries sent by Amazon.com’s customers. However, the powers that were thought I was a glutton for punishment. Therefore, they made me a Quality Editor instead. I handled the responses for the escalation e-mail queues. I also trained and audited e-mail responses for 15 executives. A relocation ended this brief but enlightening dalliance. My next assignment was as a back office executive in insurance processing. I processed transactions related to insurance cover. In some time, my supervisors realised that my innocent smiles (certainly not my good looks!) lay behind all their troubles. So they gave me charge of a team, of a process and of a client relationship too. From indexing scanned images of insurance claims related post to recovering money from at-fault third parties, my team did it all. Sadly, they also did me in… I finally turned to becoming a freelance content developer: writing about things I hadn’t heard of or seen, for clients I hadn’t ever seen (or ever would, for that matter!) at places I didn’t even know existed. After such an extensive background, can I really write? Well, in over 16 years of experience that is the only thing I’ve done. See how: • As a software developer, I WROTE computer programs and manuals • As a quality editor, I WROTE e-mails and responses • As an executive in back office processing, I WROTE manuals, desktop procedures and white papers • As a team leader, I WROTE policies, manuals, emails, white papers etc. • As a content developer, I WRITE articles, blogs, website content, product descriptions etc. So what’s common across: softWare – auditOr – data-entRy – team leaDer and writing Stuff fulltime? The answer is simple: All of them deal in WORDS…that express what needs to be done in the best way possible…  less

    Sometimes, no matter how professional we are in a particular field, we find our-self requiring an extra hand to assist us complete tasks that; sometimes, we can comfortably handle. In other occasions, we desire to achieve something, but we have no idea how to do it, or where to start. Here is where I came in. Nevertheless; on the onset, I admit that I am not a jack of all trade. I am an adept academic writer, economist and business analyst with over 5 years experience in the above fields. I am particularly experienced in writing dissertations, essays, reports, analytical papers, research papers, statistical analysis and other technical writings. Over the years, I have practiced and perfected the art of writing in various styles like APA, MLA, Chicago and Harvard among others. I have also learnt how to use various editing and plagiarism checkers like grammarly and turnitin that comes in handy in any form of writing. Finally, I have learnt to respect and understand every client since, we are all different; hence, the variation in our demands and requirements. This said; I am always willing to accord my services to all deserving clients. Whatever I do, I do it to please my God!  less

    As a full-time freelance writer specializing in blogs, articles, e-books, product descriptions, and web content, I continuously seek long-term opportunities with great potential for growth in which I can utilize my skills and talents.

I have also conducted writing workshops and training seminars on oral and written communication for students, teachers, and company staff. Aside from my background in the education industry, I am well-versed with online marketing because of the many related articles I have done about it in the past and also because it is one of my interests. I am also trained in direct sales, business, self-development, and financial literacy as I have worked as a part-time financial adviser in the past and am currently involved in a MLM business/company.

    I have been involved in all sections of the educational field, secondary and tertiary, as a teacher and as administrator. I am an avid reader of a multitude of genres and a writer of non fiction material. Added to this, I am also a proof reader and editor. Yes I have a large skills base, but then I am no spring chicken! I am fluent in two languages, with English being my home language and the one I am most comfortable using. Due to family commitments, I have been out of the job market for the last four years. However, with children all grown and finally living their own lives, I have decided to get the brain cells into motion again, doing what I love best: being involved in an area that uses words! As a result, I have decided to offer my services as a freelancer, affording me the opportunity to work in the most relaxed atmosphere possible which is my own home, and supplying a professional service at the same time. I have written various eBooks and done a plethora of editing and proof reading for clients on Odesk in the short while I have been here. Most of my clients do not close the contracts due to them asking to be able to use my services at their convenience at any given time. (That sentence can lead to all kinds of conclusions but let us stick to the professional Odesk one please!) I like to stay in constant communication with my clients as I complete a project. Transparency is important to me.  less
