    My passions are taking on challenging accounting work and creative writing. Highly contrasting interests, but equally enjoyable to me!!

I have 20 years experience in accounting work and have used Xero, QuickBooks, MYOB, Access Data Bases, Excel and other related software during the course of my work. I have worked in Australia and Sri Lanka. I am good at writing about anything and everything but writing fiction is at the top of my list. I love creating interesting and witty stories based on any story outline given to me. All the stories I have written so far have been highly appreciated!

    Jarkko Helenius

    Creative Writer / Travel Writer / Translator / Data Entry Specialist

    Finland - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 1

    I'm a writer aspiring to go full-time pro. Though not native English speaker, I've managed to develop my writing skills to great levels and I often get remarks I write better than some natives. Yet I keep pushing my edge and improving my writing every day. The fact that I've built such strong ability in English and speak Finnish natively means that I am capable of translation work as well. I have studied translation theory on my own. I have accounts on other freelancing sites and I have been writing there with good reviews for about a year now. I know I'm a capable writer and I always work extremely hard for people who hire me. Essentially the initial rate I'm putting up is a ridiculous undervaluing of my skills, but I want to be out of the blocks fast on this site. My best suit is fiction writing in all forms, but I'm just as capable of writing any web content or other similar articles. I know sports and fitness very well so that is my strongest subject matter. I've also published my own nutritional ebook on Kindle. You can ask me for the link. Also I am very capable travel writer. Currently I've travelled to 11 countries and spent over 200 days of my life outside of my native Finland. Cities I've been to include, but are not limited to Sao Paulo, Rio De Janeiro, Tokyo, Osaka, Bangkok, Manila, Hong Kong, Macau, Istanbul, Stockholm and Kuala Lumpur. I own two websites of my one, one being a personal development / travel blog and the other being a Finnish fitness site. I also am familiar with the SEO so my writing skills can help you in that regard as well. While writing is what I consider my primary niche, I've garnered a massive pool of experience as a data entry specialist during my nearly two years on oDesk.

    Ryan Colangelo

    Teacher, Editor, Writer, Proofreader

    Canada - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 3

    I have a B.A. (Honours) with a double major in History and English, as well as a B.Ed. in which I received a 4.09 GPA (on a 4.3 scale). In total I have six years of university education and two years of college, during which I wrote many essays, articles, and reports that garnered praise from my professors for my conversational yet formal style. I have experience writing and editing grant proposals, news articles, and convention asset proposals, as well as experience as a Teaching Assistant in Graduate School, helping students with their work. All students that came to me for help received higher marks than they would have otherwise. I am constantly reading, and thus increasing my vocabulary and grammar skills. I am never satisfied with an end product until its spelling and grammar are complete, and strive to maintain the original wording and intent of anything I edit. Finally, I am very capable of understanding legal jargon, as well as determining the appropriate sense of a word based on its context. If I run into a problem with the text, I will note it, and begin communication with you to solve it, while continuing with the rest of the task. It would be unprofessional to delay the task needlessly, or to expect you to pay more than you should need to.
