    Highly Fluent Writer - Creative, SEO Copy, Edit, Proof

    United States - Last active: 10 days ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 12

    Are you looking for a copywriter to add REAL value by helping improve on your product or service? Someone to bounce ideas off? To generate increased sales and revenue for you? I take time to listen, think outside the box, and position you using my expertise as a writer. I’ll ask a lot of questions to save you time and money in the long run. Just one idea I contribute could be worth much more than the hours for which you’ll pay. Here’s my offer: • Freedom. I’ll take your idea and run with it until it works. • Results. I’ll deliver top shelf on time – every time. • Peace of mind, as you put your project in my capable hands. • High ROI, as my dedication furthers your vision and goals. If you pay your plumber $90 per hour but expect someone with a Masters degree to churn out an article for a pittance, please don't contact me. I only accept offers to which I feel a strong connection. I prefer to work with the best - those who see how good writing can add value to a bottom line. If you have a serious offer, I invite you to leverage my expertise to your company’s success.

    Senior Software Developer

    Canada - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 2

    I have extensive experience developing enterprise-grade network-based web applications and desktop software for clients in government, health care, finance, and academia. I'm the lead developer on several web-based and game engine products, some open-source. I'm strongly familiar with major proprietary and open source development tools and libraries. I'm both an experienced team leader and a fast and reliable solo developer, and as an entrepreneur I understand how to balance high-quality work with the need to ship. I have an academic background with training in both statistics and research methodologies, so I particularly enjoy working on challenging projects that require analysis and creative problem-solving, and which aren't simply clones of existing software. I look forward to working with you!
