I was an advisor to the BBC in London for two years. I am now a freelance writer and editor for discerning (and usually delighted) clients, itching to unleash affecting prose, or massage others' to fluidity. My natural writing style is engaging (and educational if needs be), entertaining and memorably unusual. I employ my vivacious imagination, broad awareness of evocative vocabulary, and thoroughly objectionable sense of humour. In the case of non-fiction, I incorporate research credibly into the flow of the text. I've written published books (e-books and hard copy), magazine articles, music reviews, copy, medical articles and website content. I consider myself a highly capable and perceptive editor. I have years of experience meticulously tightening and colouring novels, hundreds of articles and essays, non-fiction books, two film scripts, an e-book by an established UK psychologist, a book by an award-winning photographer and an e-book serving as guidance for professional writers. I am diligent to the point of beneficial neurosis: I notice mistakes (or thoughtlessness) in typography, flow, punctuation, structure or word choice in published works. I'm also a registered paediatric and emergency nurse, with a particular interest in holistic therapies. After graduating with Kingston University's highest mark, I went on to be a health lecturer, disaster relief worker, and advisor to various UK and Sri Lankan health charities. I helped create pilot schemes for the National Health Service. Now as a professional writer and explorer, I have no 'normal job' to interfere with my writing commissions. Writing specialisms: Humour Travel Health Music Food Film Fairytales / fantasy Children's Please see portfolio for examples of work. I currently reside in a dilapidated South-East Asian beach hut with a large spider and an internet connection. I enjoy eating, motorcycling and thaumatology.

Personal website with more detail: http://www.brianfrydenborg.com LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/brianfrydenborg I have almost 15 years of experience writing about, researching, and analyzing complex public policy, historical, political, and international affairs subjects ranging from UN peacekeeping to Ancient Rome. My Bachelor of Arts degree from Washington and Lee University is a double major in History (concentration Asia and Russia) and Politics, and my Master of Science degree from the George Mason University School of Public Policy is in Peace Operations, a term which basically refers to everything that occurs in and concerns conflict/postconflict and disaster/postdisaster zones, especially international development, humanitarian relief and aid, and governance/institution building. I can easily provide a quality work product concerning any of these topics and many others, and can also easily research, write, and analyze new subjects. I also have extensive travel experience, including to Japan, Cuba, Liberia, Israel and the West Bank, and Jordan, to list some examples. My resume, which provides more detail, can be found on my LinkedIn profile http://www.linkedin.com/in/brianfrydenborg/ Please feel free to contact me regarding any of your research, writing, analysis, and consulting needs. I am also available for interviews as a subject-matter expert. NOTE TO CLIENTS: I DO NOT DO FIXED-PRICE CONTRACTS USING ODESK'S FIXED-PRICE SYSTEM. oDesk removed most protections for contractors with its new fixed price system so this is non-negotiable. HOWEVER, WE CAN AGREE TO A FIXED PRICE USING THE HOURLY SYSTEM TO BILL in that you can set an hourly cap on your end that will not allow the price to go past a certain point without your permission and action on your end and the system will not let me bill past this limit. In this situation, depending on our arrangement I can work until the job is done regardless of how many more hours past the cap it takes. My basic ground rules are 1.) any contract we make is going to only be the project outlined in that contract; additional work will require a separate contract as opposed to just adding to existing contract to keep things clear, and so that the client rating can reflect the actual work stipulated in said contract and not additional requests made after a contract is agreed upon 2.) I will be very responsive in my communication expect a similar responsiveness in return 3.) I ask that I not be held responsible for a third party's satisfaction with my work since you as the client, not I, have the relationship with the third party, but I will be happy to work off of feedback from a third party for any contract in order to address that third party's concerns 4.) if for any reason you are unsatisfied with my work I ask that you communicate to me the reasons why so that I may address any issues or offer a resolution that will bring you to a state of satisfaction 5.) If your work requires the APA documentation format and it is something other than a very short assignment, there will be a non-negotiable 10% surcharge because of the extra time this style requires. I look forward to doing business with you!

I have moved into freelance writing from a business and entertainment background. I have 5 years experience in the mobile phone industry where I have gained vast experience in sales (both face to face and on the phone), business management and expert knowledge in telecommunications. I have experience in entertainment as a performer (professional wrestling and stand up comedy), event management (3 years experience running a comedy club) and comedy writing (3 years experience as a newspaper columnist). This wide range of experience lends itself to freelance writing exceptionally well as I am able to use my knowledge gained in a number of different areas to help provide articles that are brilliantly informative and can help people learn from my experience. My experience as a comedy writer also helps me provide a comedic take on subjects which means that my articles are likely to be read, enjoyed and shared by a wider range of people.
