    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.

    Professional Speech Writer

    Australia - Last active: 8 days ago - Tests: 5

    I don't find myself with a lot of time, but I have a special talent in writing prose that is profound, erudite and abundantly clear. If you have a high-value task that requires that special x-factor; the additional 'oomph' to get it across the line from average to exceptional, you can entrust it to me. I have written speeches for many important people, including prominent politicians. I have also contributed language to determinations and communiques from some of the world's highest-profile bodies, including the United Nations and the G20. As a qualified lawyer with a Master's Degree in international law, I have extensive experience in drafting both domestic and international legal instruments (legislation, regulations, treaties and travaux preparatioux). I have also worked as a financial analyst, financial advisor and currently have my own start-up company. I love to write, but am picky with my projects. I have my own style, which I have fine-tuned over more than a decade writing in a private and government context, for Ministers across a range of portfolio areas. If you would like to see a sample of my writing, please contact me. For an honest sample of my work, I include below a link to a second reading speech I wrote for the Australian (Commonwealth) Attorney-General introducing a Bill to the Federal Parliament. This speech was written in two hours and was delivered unedited from my original version. http://www.aph.gov.au/binaries/hansard/reps/dailys/dr240311.pdf (pp 3143-5)
