    Jim D.

    Freelance Writer

    United States - Portfolio: 3

    I am a patient and laid back former corporate engineering executive and Naval officer both of which I retired from so I could expand my horizons and do more of the things I enjoy. One of those things is writing which I do very well. The other is to learn new things through research and study. My writing style is generally conversational in tone with a soft, easy flow to it. My research style is exhaustive and well-founded. I find both styles to fit well with the work presented in this venue. I am also able to adapt to the more formal APA and Chicago style manuals to write highly effective technical and academic literature as it presents itself. Talk to me and you will see that I can give you the value-added products you need for your website, blog, business or hobby. I am not afraid to take on the difficult task. My rating reflects that. Hard jobs do not always come out the way it was envisioned as we learn while we do. But, I can guarantee you that we will learn together.

    Learning and translating all the time.

    Mexico - Portfolio: 1

    I was an English and French teacher for over ten years. I worked on academic magazines, as a freelancer, writing on very diverse subjects, from Comunication to Psychology... I love languages, I even met my french husband speaking just French and English, despite the fact that I'm Mexican and my first language is Spanish. I'd love to keep conquering interesting challenges, writing and most of all, learning. Each job, each new employer, represents a challenge, and I think, there's no better way of learning than challenging yourself. These past months working as a freelancer here in elance, I've also refined my skills in SEO and SEO writing. As I've said, I love the journey.

    Putting everything I have into everything you do. Let my passion work for you. I will write energetically about a cause, give your product a believable but glowing review, or write a moving article about... well, anything that moves you. While I do hold a BA in English with a General Business minor, my devotion to the written word has underscored every accomplishment in my life. While capable of writing about any given topic, I am specifically knowledgeable in the fields of education (Montessori, Public, Homeschooling), family, relationships, spirituality, child development, fiction, healthy eating, natural living, the Metro Detroit Area, and all things coffee. Yes, coffee. I have published advertorials and articles for a local city guide, written text for a school web page, and edited a children's book. I have works published on various web sites under my own name and pen names. I also teach a screenplay-writing class and maintain two active blogs.
