United Kingdom - Last active: 01/05/2014 - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 1

Hello, I'm currently working as a freelance writer, and always on the look out for more work. I enjoy writing about a variety of topics, including travel, film, music, literature, fashion and food. I'm also comfortable taking on topics I've not tackled before, such as guaranteed rent schemes and property management. I'm savvy at researching and have a fair bit of experience with SEO from my time working in house as a content writer at various companies. I'm an avid social media user too, and have experience of sharing material and enhancing brand names through this. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Skilled all-round writer with college experience.

Canada - Last active: 08/12/2013 - Tests: 2

I say 'college experience' because I didn't finish my journalism and mass communications degree/s. I love travelling and new experiences so I dropped out after 2 years and up and moved from Australia to Canada for little-to-no reason. After a serious health scare, I realized how much I missed writing and so am working my way back towards it. I'm currently taking several online writing courses and working a job I would much rather quit to become a full time writer.
