    Marketing Strategist // Content Specialist Learn more at www.beforrestal.com. I work full-time for a technology-driven marketing company, and I wear many hats. As it turns out, I'm a jack of all trades and a master of none -- except writing. I have a BA in English, and during college, I was a communications fellow for a clean energy non-profit and a staff writer for my university's newspaper. More recently, I was an editorial intern-turned-assistant for a reputable nonprofit encyclopedia, and I continue to generate content as a social media and marketing specialist for a grassroots-but-growing cancer charity.

    Eloquent Automotive technical researcher and writer

    South Africa

    I'm an Automotive Engineer turned Blogger. I've been the Ghostwriter on an exclusive, bespoke on Supercars, bikes & planes. Subsequent to the successful completion of this piece I've written articles on everything from "how to articles" around practical guides to carrying out repairs, to copy for performance workshops and sales outlets around the world. I've established a long-term research and writing relationship with a European company that facilitates seminars and workshops for OEM's and first tier industry suppliers. This has expanded to my own monthly column where I focus on current topical events and developments within the industry. I'm conscientious, an independent free thinker with the engineering discipline of logic and the ability to research difficult topics. I only write challenging articles and deliver on time. Examples of my work are available to all interested parties. Hope to hear from you Peter

    experienced writer branching out into new things

    United Kingdom - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 5

    My first degree is in English and Education studies from the University of Chester, but I also hold qualifications in psychology, teaching, mathematics, history and out door activities. I am currently a privet tutor working only 3-5 hours daily so I have time on my hands and can't stand being idol. I've had work published in several peer reviewed journals and have been writing for as long as I can remember - I even got a Blue Peter badge for a book review at the age of 8. I have done a lot of jobs in my time, making my experience very varied. From Sunday School teaching to working in a PRU (referral school for children with behavioral problems) and dog walking to dietitian. I spent a long time as a story teller and still get the odd job at schools and events weaving tales and making magic. You name it, I've probably done it. I even make wooden instruments with my father.

    If you can dream it, I can weave it.

    South Africa - Portfolio: 3

    A creative writer by heart, a storyteller by choice. With words, I weave worlds. Creating landscapes, characters and images that lure you away from the mundane, make your heart pound a little faster and your breath hitch in anticipation. Be your hero a downtrodden slave, a dashing shape shifter, or a lost soul seeking revenge in a world filled with disloyalty (known to us as high school), their worlds become a reality.
