Creative/Copy/Content Writer, Musician, Guitar Ins...

United States - Last active: 15 hours ago - Tests: 5

I am an economical writer with a Creative Writing Bachelor's from the University of Central Florida. I discovered my love for language long before I traipsed into my first college classroom. As such, I possess a great command of the English language and its intricacies. My life's passion is music; however. The first time I heard an electric guitar I was entranced. My father taught me three simple chords when I was nine, and the fourteen years to follow have seen me obtain an Associate's in Music from Daytona State College. I have performed intricate jazz standards in ensembles and explored my own interests and talent in my personal projects. Since I have joined oDesk, I have applied my creative writing skills to write copy and edit pieces for multiple satisfied clients. I have even established myself as a musical instructor through one of them. If you have been searching for a freelancer that will dedicate the time and effort needed to realize your vision AND double as an effective communicator -- look no further.
