    Ashley P.

    Professional Writer and Editor, degree in English and Creative Writing

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 2

    I graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Art in English and Creative Writing. In the years since graduating from college I have held positions as an Editor in Chief, Administrative Assistant, Chief Blogger, and various other positions wich involved a great deal of professional writing. I believe my writing ability is what sets me apart from other freelancers on the site. I am also adept at administrative tasks such as data entry, creating schedules, communicating with clients, and other organizational duties. Some of my skills include typing a clean 90 WPM, basic HTML knowledge, a strong proficiency in all Word software, professional editing, writing, administrative tasks, and having 11 years of professional experience in these fields. As you can also see from my tests I placed 1st out of 400k+ test takers on the US Spelling Test. Aside from the professional description above I am absolutely in love with writing and words. I've always been told I have a knack for writing the perfect description that people never knew they wanted. Since I was young I devoured books like The Hobbit and a lot of children's books. I decided after college I wanted to devote myself to actually doing what I went to college for. And living in a small town doesn't lend well for writing outside of your home. So I decided the best step to take was to become a freelancer and help people all over the world with their writing needs. I've written everything from stories about video games to a memorial for a loved one. I hope by reading this you can see just how much I love to write. If you're looking for someone who is truly passionate about reading, writing, and language in general, I hope you contact me and let me assist you with the perfect phrase. - Ashley

    Back-end (ASP.NET) / front-end (HTML/CSS/jQuery)

    Croatia - Last active: 5 days ago - Portfolio: 7

    I am a .NET developer with 8 years of experience in .NET programming and over 15 years of experience in HTML. HTML/CSS is modern and W3C compliant. My specialty are custom web applications (time / inventory tracking, simple CRM, e-commerce) and fully customized CMS solutions, which can fit to absolutely any design and without tons of options that you don't need and will never use. Hence the UI of the CMS is much cleaner and simpler to use, even for those aren't very literate when it comes to computers. Besides my custom CMS I prefer to use Orchard CMS (based on ASP.NET MVC) for customers that require open source CMS, or don't need too much modifications to the code.
