    Tom McMeekin

    Multi-Media Journalist, Writer, and Artist

    United States - Last active: 12 days ago - Tests: 4

    I'm a professional multi-media journalist who can write, edit, research, produce, and design high-quality content on almost any topic and for any medium. From creating blog and social media posts to complete marketing communications plans, I have worked with clients including university programs, acupuncturists, chefs, commercial painters, e-commerce sites, news sites and forums, and more. I do not compromise my high ethical standards. Sorry, but I do not accept jobs that involve "ghostwriting" without credit, "spinning" and stealing others' copyrighted work, or other shady practices. What you get with me is a passionate, hard-working, detail-oriented, mass communications expert. What you do not get is someone who will rush the job or be a mindless "yes man" -- if I accept a job then I am committing to give you my best work effort, and that includes sometimes offering suggestions or advice -- getting you the final product you NEED, not just the one you think you want. I generally do not do Skype interviews or meetings for any projects paying less than $1,000. I am happy to answer any questions through ODesk or email, and I am happy to do a trial period for any ongoing positions. Sorry, but the reason I choose to do online freelancing is to make my own schedule and work in my pajamas; if you can't deal with that then best of luck finding someone who is a better fit for you.

    Mary Bon RIBA: (Architect) Writer - Environmentalist

    France - Last active: 7 days ago - Tests: 2

    I am a native English chartered member of the RIBA but for the last three years I have been rsearching/writing (and rewriting/editing and proofreading) via Elance and Odesk/Upwork.on a full time basis serving the construction industry and associated professions. More often than not I have written on environmental issues (such as resilient flood defence, SUDS, Passivhaus, prefabrication, landscape, LEED...) My professional background is coupled with extensive international work experience, including commercial experience outside the profession - for both large and small businesses. I have lived and worked in either highly urban or extremely remote locations in several climatically different countries, including the UK, Eire, Chile, Italy, France, French Polynesia and the USA. I am married and raising 2 bi-lingual children. I use my French, Spanish, Italian and English skills to enhance my work, particularly my research capability. I enjoy supporting environmental causes through my work. In contrast to my hardworking online time, I can be found exploring my immediate surroundings in the wild and rural Aveyron region of France, sketchbook in hand.
