    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. I started my career tutoring young adults as well as children with special needs and only recently returned to my love of art by taking courses in Graphic Design. 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!

    United States - Last active: 08/13/2013 - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 4

    I work as a freelance writer. I attended college at both the University of Southern Mississippi and the University of Alabama, where I majored in psychology. I possess excellent research and writing skills and can write about a wide variety of topics. I chose this career path because writing has always been my strongest skill and feels very natural for me. I am able to work quickly and efficiently under time constraints. I am proficient at many styles of writing, both academic and creative, and if I have not written in a particular style I am adept at picking it up quickly and adapting to it. I am easy to work with, not argumentative, and FAST. I will get the job done by deadline, usually before, and it will be high quality writing and exactly what you asked for. I am a native English writer. My work is 100 percent original and of my own imagination. I do not use spin or re-write programs which leave the work sounding awkward and computer-written. Odesk asked me to supply an hourly rate; however I rarely work for that amount or on an hourly basis. Sometimes I will work for less, if I have a low workload at the time and the project is not overly difficult. Other times I ask for a higher amount based on the difficulty of the project and amount of research required. Please inquire with details of your specific project and I will quote a rate for you.
