    Freelance Writer & German-English Translator

    New Zealand - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 1

    I write, I translate, and I do anything in between. I have a passion for writing, and this includes free writing, proofreading, translating, and rewriting. I'm a native English-speaker from the United States, and have my Bachelor's degree in German and Anthropology from Luther College. "Very nicely done. It is obvious that you have experience writing online, but what was most striking about your writing is your ability to maintain a sincere and friendly voice. I truly felt like you were a friend offering expert travel advice- and that is exactly what the client is looking for. I'd be honored to have you help me finish this project." - my first paying client Since childhood I have always been the one peers and coworkers come to when they need an something proofread. I consistently receive good feedback for my writing - especially for my strong "writing voice." I now freelance write as a profession rather than just a hobby - and my passion for it is only getting stronger.
