    I'm just starting here at upwork. I can say that I am good at working with Microsoft Office Softwares mainly because of school work. I can work pretty well with data entry involving Microsoft Office and PDF files. I also am good with researching for things using the internet.

    United States - Last active: 09/16/2013 - Tests: 3

    I am an English native speaker and writer who has written a large number of novels. For the past two years I have also written a number of short stories as a freelance writer for a gaming company in Florida. In the past seven years I have taught high school Physics (among other things) in both Texas and now Florida. Before that I designed video game with a focus on writing dialogue and storyline. Over the past ten years I have done a number of professional editing jobs that included everything from term papers, memos, and advertisements to full length novels. One thing that drives me as a writer is continual education to improve my writing skills. I have taken a number of writing classes through various media including classes on self-editing. I also maintain a blog that has an established viewership. My goal as a writer is to continue to publish novels, expanding that into a full company that includes multiple authors, video games, movies, and other forms of entertainment and informational media. In the short term, I would like to expand into the freelance market further to help financially facilitate the expansion of that company.

    Freelance writer with 7 years of experience

    Croatia - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 2

    Over the past 7 years, I've written for a variety of IT related magazines and web sites including being a head editor of a prominent Croatian gaming portal. "On the side" so to speak, I've been writing different fictious and philosophical works covering all genres and themes. My goal here is to develop my skills further because there is always room for that, and of course, maybe make some money by dabbling in the fine art of hitting the letters on a keyboard.
