    Canadian writer abroad: web content and more.

    Israel - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 33

    You're looking for writing that gets the point across - clear, entertaining, and maybe even SEO-friendly; you'd probably love to make it to the top in an incredibly competitive online world. I can do that for you. As a Canadian writer living abroad, I've written professionally both online and for print on topics ranging from computer security to medicine and science to parenting and spirituality. You name it, I've written it - and if you check my client reviews here, you'll see that I'm doing it unbelievably well! You'll probably get proposals with a lower bottom line. There's lots of competition here, I'm afraid. But I doubt you'll find many native-English writers out there who can do what I do for the same price. And none will bring the same professionalism and team spirit as I can to your website, publication or blog. If you're not sure what I can do for you - just ask!

    Rigorous. Responsive. Cuts to the chase.

    Kenya - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 11

    My professional experience started in the employ of a Software Development firm. In the past 4 years, however, I have exploited my research and analytical skills to make a living out of full-time writing. In addition to numerous product reviews, more than three thousand (3000) academic papers and eight hundred (800) articles are testament to my output. I will work with you to understand your ideas before transforming them to the right words. I do not use article-spinning software nor re-assign my projects. My writing is 100% unique, well-researched and unpretentious.
