My strong organizational skills have allowed me to assist a number of clients in maintaining their company databases, emails, and project management tasks, among other things.

I’ve written articles for a number of blogs and websites, both creative and commercial. With a typing speed averaging at 90 wpm, I’ve proven to be an efficient audio transcriptionist. I’ve worked with various clients in providing transcriptions for vlogs and closed captioning for a variety of televised programs.

    Writer

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago

    I do a lot of ghost writing, but if you want to post under my pen name, I won't say no. I have a lot of people who try to find anything I've written. I'm a good typist (I average around 120wpm). I also use duplichecker.com to ensure my work is original before I submit it. While I always write everything from scratch - I just double check it for your protection. I have a fast turn over rate, and I usually produce content and deliver faster than deadlines ask for. I'm a published author and have been writing my entire life and am always working on perfecting and adding to my knowledge base. I'm passionate about my work and a little bit of a perfectionist. I'm energetic, eager to please and won't commit to work if I can't promise to meet deadlines. I pride myself on being on time. I can follow a specific set of instructions, or if given the opportunity, have a good imagination and am very creative. My goal is to please my client and achieve a good quality product. I am quick to get back to people and will work hard on any project I take on. My specialty is creative writing.
