    Philippines - Last active: 06/25/2013 - Tests: 11 - Portfolio: 4

    My skills gravitate on writing and research. In the three years that I've been working with oDesk, I have gained new insights about online working and believe there is still a lot to know about it. Among these are the future of SEO article writing, the function of social media and the increasing reliance of people all over the world for the web. And it is for these same insights that I aim to further hone my skills to cater to clients looking for carefully crafted writing, learn what I can about SEO and practice it, and harness the power of social media and the web to gain foothold, if not a small recognition, in the online writing industry/community.
