    Freelance Writer/ Web Content Writer

    Philippines - Last active: 07/30/2014 - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 6

    I am a Dentist by profession and a writer at heart. I enjoy writing articles as my way of sharing thoughts and developing my skills as well. Unique and original, my works have reached people in different walks of life. I joined Odesk to further enhance my skills and at the same time help people in their concerns with regard to technical writing, proofreading and other related works in which my qualifications may apply. I’m a wide reader and so I am able to expound on an array of topics which are mostly related to travel, sports, health, social wellness, How-to articles, technology, Human interest story, and Inspirational articles. I also have work experience as an English Tutor and proofread most of my student's homework. I wrote essays and introductory notes for some people who engaged in public speaking. I already had an SEO writing experience before and I’m open to new ideas and experiences I may get here. I love to explore and learn more. I'm a fast learner and I’m capable of doing tasks efficiently and of good quality even when time pressured. I work with passion and I'm focused not only to meet your expectations but my own expectations as well.

    Writer, Editor, Poet

    United States - Last active: 07/09/2014 - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 7

    The love of writing is in my blood, literally. Both of my parents are English teachers, my mother is a published author, and my brother is a successful blogger. Genetically, I have the passion for the English language coursing through my veins. My adventure with writing began privately; solely as an outlet. Growing up, I would sit in my room late at night, pouring my thoughts into poetry. Fast forward 10 years- after college and after journals upon journals full of poems, I made the decision to share my writing with the world by self publishing my collection, and selling my line of poetry greeting cards, Cards of Clarity®. In addition to pursuing my poetry professionally, I also have had several experiences with blog writing, proofreading, editing, speech-writing, ghostwriting and content writing. I look forward to the opportunity to share those experiences with you, as well as my creativity, vigor, and hereditary adoration for the written word.
