    Matthew Berg Agency Contractor

    Freelance writer, content manager & adventurer

    United States - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 2

    I've been writing website content professionally for over four years. From blog articles to social media to press releases, I've done it all - and on a number of platforms. I'm familiar with a list of content management systems, from WordPress to custom-made website back ends, to Joomla. I write to inform and entertain. My style is authoritative, but warm and tinged with just enough dry humor to prove I do have a soul. I'm looking for writing opportunities that'll give me the excuse to live and learn, and to pass my knowledge and experience to an audience on a multitude of channels. Along with over two years experience as a freelance writer and software tester, I have experience as a reporter, a pizza delivery driver, and I've even done maintenance on swimming pools. I'm currently earning a Bachelor's degree in Communications, and I hope to launch my own online content production service this year. Stay tuned!
