    Writer Specializing in Beauty, SFX Make-up and Baking

    United States - Last active: 20 days ago - Tests: 3

    I try to give my writing a humorous and relatable voice; more notably in creative works, but also in researched articles. In that style, I have written online tutorials on some basic make up applications as well as written movie reviews and articles about urban legends, on the same website. Educationally, I completed an aesthetician course at an accredited cosmetology academy and earned an Associate's Degree in Specialized Business learning more advanced techniques in make-up, sculpture, special FX and fashion/performance make up. Offline, my career has been in cafes and kitchens for six years, ranging from simple prep work, to management, to developing a bakery in an already established cafe.

    Canada - Last active: 5 days ago

    I am a freelance writer in Toronto. My first book, Being Mystic, was published by O-Books of the UK, in 2011 and was bought by Indiana Press of New Delhi. It has been published in Nepal, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Malaysia. I am interested in writing on a variety of topics, not just the metaphysical. As a columnist in Toronto, at The Toronto Voice, I covered cultural, community and political events. As well, I wrote comedy for stand up comics and 7 TV pilots. I have extensive PR experience booking guests on radio shows in the USA and Canada. In 2012 I booked fellow author, Deborah Lloyd, of North Carolina, on Oprah's show, yes, that Oprah, "Life Lessons." I am producer and host of the online podcast, Tuning in with Betsy (since 2006). On my show I have featured NYTBSA, a Pulitzer Prize winning author (Bill Dietrich), Keving Harrington of Shark Tank (ABC), and many other notables in the MBS genre of books. I write to deadline and can beat the clock. I enjoy using humor in my writing. I am able to assist writers who need assistance editing, marketing their books and themselves. I look forward to working together.

    Classically trained musician with commercial arranging experience.

    United States - Last active: 5 days ago - Tests: 2

    Performer and composer, well-versed in many genres of music: classical, jazz, rock, funk, soul, cinematic, etc. I typically have a fast turnaround on any project I take, and have the tools necessary to help make the music you want and need for your project - whether that's a film, video game, or music video. Your project will sound as great as it looks - guaranteed. I pursued my Bachelor's in Classical Performance at Belmont University in Nashville, TN, where I also took composition on the side. I have chosen to continue on with graduate school there as well, this time taking a keener interest in commercial styles of playing, composing, and arranging. Specific strengths: -In terms of arranging, I can do anything you want. Horn line for a soul chart? Easy. Harmonizing a jazz piece? Wonderful. Have a film score that's just piano, but want a full orchestration? You'll have it quick. I've trained (and am always sharpening my skills) to be able to help people make their music sound as good as they hear it in their heads. -In terms of composition, my personal style is typically orchestral in nature, though I enjoy writing jazz charts and electronica as well. I also enjoy world/ethnic music, and try to incorporate those elements where appropriate. That being said, I'll write in any style you need. What you can expect of me: -Knowledgeable of just about every Western genre and instrument. (And a few Eastern ones, too!) This knowledge is based on my own research and backed up with the various performing opportunities I have found both in school and in the professional world. -A fast turnaround on the work you ask of me. While the turnaround changes based on the project's needs, my personal goal is to get you your music at a rate slightly faster than industry standard (ex. On average, it takes an entire working day to write two complete minutes of film score music - my goal is to give you three. A small difference, but one that adds up significantly in the long run). -Devotion to the project. I will stick the project out to the very end, and will ensure that it is made/performed entirely to your satisfaction. No corners will be cut.

    Writer/Editor/Proofreader (peddling witty, wise and well-weeded words)

    United Kingdom - Last active: 21 days ago - Tests: 5

    After graduating in English Lit (with a first), I co-wrote a travel guide, and then wangled my way into advertising as a copywriter. In the seven years that followed, I created brochures for high street banks, TV commercials for beer companies, press ads for fashion stores (catering to the 'larger lady'), radio jingles for the Armed Forces, direct mail pieces for fake diamond manufacturers, and web content for the mothers of children who wet the bed. You name it, and I probably wrote it - and always without any mistakes in or I wouldn't have been paid. These days, I prefer to write more factually and freely. Highly-readable takes on serious topics for the web (with jokes in, and take-aways, too). Travellers' tales. Complicated information made easy. And nothing too long. I'm also keen to tinker with other people's words: correcting the grammar, punctuation and spelling, and making sure it is a pleasure to read. Oh, and I'm also a professional photographer and picture-editor based on a tropical island in Thailand - though I'm not sure if oDesk is the place to be mentioning that. ;)
