    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!

    Experienced Journalism Major and Creative Writing Expert

    United States - Last active: 4 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
