    Philippines - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 2

    "Writing is something I do everyday and I never give it a second thought." Over the years, I have held the principle that writing indeed matters. It is more permanent than anything else in the world. Hence, I value the elements of good writing in my work: organized, coherent, specific, error-free, original and of course time-bound. The relevance of my experience in journalism as well as in teaching English justify my core competencies, which I am certain are needless to say. I am new to Odesk, yet I am confident that in no time I can prove my expertise in SEO, copy writing, blog and article writing, creative writing and sorts of technical writing.
