    Journalist | Creative Writer | Graphic Designer

    Philippines - Last active: 02/05/2011 - Tests: 11 - Portfolio: 15

    As a graphic designer and a writer, I have combined the best of both disciplines to deliver high-quality projects on time. Always foremost on my mind is not only my integrity as a service provider (writer and graphic designer) but also the integrity of the client. Not only am I well-versed with the nuances of journalism, I have also enriched myself with the different facets of graphic design. From WordStar to Microsoft Word and from Aldus PageMaker to Adobe InDesign, I have been able to keep myself abreast with the latest wordprocessing and design software. This, in turn, has made me very capable in dealing with various projects. Knowing my background, my local clients not only trust my graphic design skills, they also trust my copywriting and editing skills -- a huge time-saver for them.

    Freelance writer, content manager & adventurer

    United States - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 3

    I've been writing website content professionally for over four years. From blog articles to social media to press releases, I've done it all - and on a number of platforms. I'm familiar with a list of content management systems, from WordPress to custom-made website back ends, to Joomla. I write to inform and entertain. My style is authoritative, but warm and tinged with just enough dry humor to prove I do have a soul. I'm looking for writing opportunities that'll give me the excuse to live and learn, and to pass my knowledge and experience to an audience on a multitude of channels. Along with over two years experience as a freelance writer and software tester, I have experience as a reporter, a pizza delivery driver, and I've even done maintenance on swimming pools. I'm currently earning a Bachelor's degree in Communications, and I hope to launch my own online content production service this year. Stay tuned!

For some their goal is to travel overseas and feel in control, for others it is finding a better job, for some, learning English enables them to meet a partner that they might never have been able to communicate with otherwise.
