    Expert Editor and Writer

    Saudi Arabia - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 3

    I am a writer not a fighter! I also am a Pakistani, having lived as an expat in Australia and Saudi Arabia. I used to edit academic papers for my dad (who is an academic) but I thought now is the time to get paid for doing what I do best which is being particularly finicky about grammar, punctuation and spelling. I am a Law student and an ex-Literature student which means that writing is kind of my forte (even if nothing else is). So in conclusion (of this extremely unprofessional sell), if you are thinking of someone to fulfill your writing and editing needs, perhaps, I might be the one you want.

    Writer: Content / SEO / Copywriter / Creative

    United States - Tests: 2

    Over the past 15 years I have developed a wide range of skills working as an independent contractor. I love to learn and because of that there are multiple jobs that I enjoy and excel at. Although I enjoy all of my jobs, I am most passionate about writing. I am fortunate to have a lot of experience in many areas, such as: Writing: SEO Content, Copy writer, Creative (bachelor's degree in Journalism), Mac Specialist, IT (tech support for AOL), Paralegal (legal asst. degree), Private Investigation (licensed), Researcher, Data Entry, Writing for ChaCha and Ask.com, Accounts Payable and Receivable, General Automotive Knowledge (1 year auto mechanics), and more. However, whatever it is that I am tasked to do I give my all. It is very important to me that I do the job to my employer's expectations; it makes them feel good which makes me feel good.

    Writer

    United States - Tests: 1

    I write. National Public Radio, USA Today, The American Institute of Physics, and The Smithsonian have published my work. I've prepared patents, developed instructions for computer users, worked at Ehow, and published an Amazon Bestseller that hit #1 in astronomy, surpassing even Stephen Hawking's books. I started in the computer field. After developing training materials and publishing newsletters, I worked in Washington and Tokyo in the patent field. I specialized in semiconductors and computers. Then I spent eight years in public policy. Always a Star Trek fan, I published a way of reaching Alpha Centauri, our nearest star. I co-authored the paper with a friend from the Peace Corps. I've been writing about life in Jupiter's moon Europa recently. My electrical engineering studies at George Washington University helped me understand the nature of Europa. The electrical field data collected by NASA's Galileo probe prove that this moon of Jupiter holds an ocean. Unfortunately, many still don't understand that. I hope to promote exploration of this moon so we can confirm life. I also hold a law degree from George Washington University and an information systems degree from Georgia.

    Paralegal/Bankruptcy Paralegal/Content Writer

    United States - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 3

    I am a paralegal with over 26 years experience in several areas of the legal field (18 years as a bankruptcy paralegal and trustee paralegal). I hold a BS in Political Science in addition to my degree as a paralegal. I wrote content for a popular online site for over 6 years and wanted to branch out to reach other clients in need of someone with excellent writing skills. I would like to address my Job Success rate. I have finished each job assigned to me (as you can see I have an overall rating of 4.95 stars) but some of my clients did not end the contract when the job was complete. I ended those contracts, left positive feedback for the client, and requested feedback. However, those clients did not provide feedback (the jobs were 8 to 12 months ago). The jobs were completed and payment was received. If you view additional reviews, you will see comments from clients who took the time to leave feedback.
