Writer, Editor, Traveler, Recovering Journalist, and So Much More

Hello. My name is Andrew Davey. I have over eight years’ experience in journalism, and seventeen years' experience in blogging and content creation. Having worked my way up over these last seventeen years, I am continually on the lookout for new challenges in media, and I truly want to achieve new professional goals and grow further as a content creator. I have worked for over a decade and a half to improve my skill set in this realm, and I am hopeful that I can do and experience more by venturing into new realms of the media landscape going forward. Throughout my previous positions: I blogged about what happened in my local community, I jumped into more professional journalist roles, I navigated my way through two presidential elections in an early nominating state and a swing state as a credentialed journalist, I covered multiple state legislative sessions, and I jumped head-first into covering multiple complex policy fields - from public education to public lands and public health. I believe that this experience, coupled with my excellent interpersonal and organizational skills, make me a strong candidate for this position. In my previous roles at Let's Talk Nevada, Nevada Forward, and Nevada Today, I was responsible for juggling day-to-day local news coverage - from public lands "range war" to public health emergencies. In the 2016 and 2020 election cycles, I worked on these stories alongside presidential election coverage, and I did my best to "connect the dots" with readers as we sought answers from the candidates when they came to visit. More recently, I have worked as a writer for Digital Trends' The Manual. There, I have written brand new content and brought older content up to date. Thus far, I have completed multiple travel guides, special travel content, outdoor adventure guides, product reviews, and additional educational content. In addition, I've created content for sites like Dreams Abroad (an online travel publication) and Financially Well Off (a MSN Partner). Last year, I actually found another longer-term contract right here at Upwork. At Let's Roam, I put together many, many scavenger hunts, and I learned plenty of new and amazing skills during my time there. That, in turn, made me more flexible and better able to deliver all kinds of SEO and consumer-friendly content. Going forward, I definitely want to write and develop more travel content. If you need someone to write travel guides, provide helpful travel tips, write reviews (for hotels, vacation rentals, airlines, transit systems, etc.), and create additional travel content, I hope you consider me. If you're looking for a writer to handle other topics, I am open to learning more about who you are, what you do, and how I can help you. Even if you're interested in me doing some different kinds of writing for you, please feel free to reach out. I'm open to expanding my horizons further, and I'm interested in helping you reach your goals while I make progress on mine.
