    While a picture may be worth a thousands words, just a few words can paint a whole glorious picture. My copious inner fires dance each opportunity I get to exploit my fervent passion for words. Dubbed as a "grammar nazi" since my teen years, I've been known to mark up even published works. With 8 years in marketing and communications, copywriting, editing, and proofing are at the top of my list in favorite skills. I've also been known to dabble in technical writing. Furthermore, my bounteous affection for Art keeps things fresh and balanced, as I live for the creative process. I've been blessed with more than 7 years of graphic design experience, to include logos, business cards, brochures, restaurant menus, websites and more. Have Wordpress needs? My technical side loves customizing Wordpress themes. I've even been known to create themes from scratch, when none of the available themes fit the client's needs. I can also integrate Wordpress with a variety of apps through API. I welcome a variety of assignments, whether copywriting/editing, graphic/web design, Wordpress development, Infusionsoft administration and more. Please don't hesitate to submit inquiry for any needed clarity! Your Success is My Passion!

    I am a Project Manager and lead my team successfully in developing 100s of websites and applications. I am currently seeking a Project Management / Product Management role for immediate start preferably with opportunity for a long term relationship. I have immense experience in writing Functional Specification document that outlines the functionality of each of the elements of the application. It also contains acceptance criteria or use case that the developer may use to perform unit testing. I would love to offer my services in developing functional specification document for developers to follow. I can also deploy, if you don't have one in place, a task management system, upload the various components from the FS so that the developer can assign them to themselves, complete them, and have them ready for testing. I will then test the system so ensure that they meet the expectation, report all bugs, review them when fixed, then then retest to ensure that the app works perfectly. I will also monitor and coordinate tasks and developers to ensure that they are on track and conduct regular meeting with you or update you via email. All documentations will be maintained in Google drive and/or via the task management system for easy access. Link to Functional Specification Document extract:

    Experienced Journalism Major and Creative Writing Expert

    United States - Last active: 5 days ago - Tests: 5

    My life revolves around writing and organizing articles, essays, plays, books, short stories, editorials, and requires no small amount of luck and shameless advertising. While I know my way around a computer, and many consider me to be a social media and technology expert (sometimes better known as Cassie-the-hacker), my main job is to work with pictures, words, videos, music, and media. I have been a hired freelance writer on several different websites since my sophomore year of high school, and I receive a steady amount of work from those opportunities. I am a Journalism major at New York University in New York City, originally from Howell, MI and a graduate from Howell High School. My dream is to become a investigative journalist and novelist in a big city that never sleeps (much like I don’t). You can find stories anywhere and everywhere you look. And that is, in essence, what I spend my time doing. I also write music and spend my free time helping with local theatrical productions. And, of course, occasionally stirring up controversy between my school administration and members of the community through my work (but what journalist worth a damn doesn’t do that?). On that note, please feel free to contact me with any questions. My professional website is viewable at -Cassie Bondie
