    As a graduate of Columbia College's Creative Writing program, I have been published in a variety of publications and anthology collections and produce/host a weekly open mic comedy night in Chicago. I am able to produce sharply written material on a wide range of topics in blog, article, essay, and narrative form. Hard working with a close eye for detail, I can produce pieces of writing that are high in quality and readability while meeting tight deadlines. I also have a proven knack for social media branding and building an online presence. I have received excellent feedback for my many hours and fixed rate projects on oDesk, and I am confident that any potential client will delight in what I have to offer. I manage to gain and retain new opportunities on a regular basis, and would be happy to have a chat with anyone about a potential project. My portfolio contains a handful of my published work.

    Great copy writing is a balancing act. On the one side you have boundless imagination and infinite possibilities - the need to capture the attention of an audience, tell a great story and create emotional investment in the product. On the other side are the functional requirements of the project - the structure needed to hit selling points, understand the market and ensure that the message is clear, concise and on brief. Creative writing is my great passion. I have a background in writing for film and comics, which allowed me develop a range of tones, voices and how to combine them in order to tell the best "story". Working for a production company as a writer, video editor and producer, has given me the advertising experience needed to create copy on brief. I've seen video and print campaigns from many different angles, which was crucial in helping me understand what is required in every part of the chain. Many writers only have experience from that point of view, which can be limiting. I have a lot of web experience and am currently focusing on brand identity, strategic writing, and web content.  less

    Hey there! I am a passionate freelancer with interests and experience in various fields such as adventure, fashion, ecology, wildlife and many more. Even though writing is my number one priority, I am also very keen on other aspects of life as well, and am currently in the process of completing my master's in Clinical and Counselling Psychology. Even though I am relatively new to oDesk, I do have sufficient writing experience - I've done work for travel/adventure websites, extreme sports, psychology and others. What I would say is the biggest advantage to my writing is that I am able to mold my words to suit all kinds of audiences, while staying true to my own style and incorporating a bit of myself into every text I create. I also have experience working as an ESL teacher for both children and adults, which was an amazing adventure and serves to show you that I have a very thorough understanding of the English language. I hope we can get to know each other and do some great work together! :)  less

    Language is my passion, and my love of language is the constant theme in all of my pursuits. I currently work as an English teacher in Japan, where I design fun, original lesson plans in both Japanese and English. I'm also a capable translator of Japanese to English, my love of both tongues ensuring that working with them never feels like work. A graduate of The College of William and Mary, I completed my college's rigorous creative writing degree, including studying under the acclaimed poet Joshua Poteat. I also got a taste of marketing in college, founding, promoting, and leading my own film club, which has continued to be a success after my graduation. I hope my eye for honing any kind of text to perfection can be of service to you!  less
