    I am a multi-talented creative thinker with an academic twist. I have always loved art and writing but I studied Psychology and Economics at University instead.

All of this means that I can draw from many different sources of experience to produce excellent results in a host of different fields. I look forward to working with you!

    Experienced Content Manager, Project Manager, and Lead Editor

    United States - Last active: 7 days ago - Tests: 21

    Outside of the freelance world, I work for an Associated Press affiliated company, covering a Major League Baseball team. Within the freelance realm, I currently hold positions such as Senior Editor, Lead Editor, Editor Trainer, and Project Manager; some requiring roles as the direct point man to Fortune 500 companies. If you need to ensure that your content is the best possible, I encourage you to read my past feedback, check out some of the dozens of tests I have taken, and contact me with your project details so I can tell you how I can help. Whether you need someone to monitor the content on your small business blog, or you need someone to handle the hiring and managing of a team of 200 writers and proofreaders, I can help. Just as a note, not to demean the position, since it is often the core of any good content strategy, but I have no interest in being a "writer" at this point in my career, so please do not invite me to jobs in that role.

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 2

    Writing and editing are passions I have had for some time now, and it is very exciting to get to work on my love for the written word every day. I have a proven track record of excellent results, where my passion shines through in my work. I have experience in editing articles, eBooks, novels, and marketing materials. I also have experience writing website content as well as creative writing. I have been a freelancer full-time now for a few of months, and I have to say, I should have done it sooner! I love the work I do in writing, copy-writing, editing, and proofreading. Every day that goes by, I learn something new, and I can add it to my knowledge. I never stop learning and I apply that to the work I do everyday.
