David Kirba

Experienced copywriter, editor and web content developer


Addis Ababa, Ethiopia


« To exceed at anything I do » I am a copywriter who, over the past 8 years, has written content for ads, magazines, newspapers and websites. Always interested in exploring new skills, I have learnt how to design websites, become a photographer and start a blog. I have poured my heart into each of these. I believe that anything I happen to be doing will benefit from an extra bit of effort. I may be sweeping the floor, trying to frame a picture just right or polishing up an article. Whatever it is, I give it my best. Followed by more. ● Why ... moreis this important to you? When you entrust a job to me, you can rest assured that it will be handled professionally with the care that it deserves. If the job requires research, I will learn all there is to know. If it requires careful writing, the content will be meticulously written and edited till it resonates with the reader, is easy to read, and ultimately completes the goal it was meant for - whether that is selling a product or imparting information. ● Why I'm on oDesk I'm on oDesk looking for writing jobs as a source of extra income. I particularly enjoy writing web content and would like to gain experience in technical writing - something I seem to have a natural aptitude for. I also create presentations and can help you set up a Wordpress site. If you're looking for a writer who will go the extra mile to make your content perfect, just send me a message. less

Work History and Feedback

  • Feb 2015 - Jun 2015

    Website content writer required
    Completely let us down. Made promises on work that could not be completed.
    Freelancer's Response
    While the client is correct that I agreed to take on the job, I believe he is being unreasonably harsh in his feedback. Due to personal reasons, I was unable to continue the job a couple of weeks after I started. I informed the client, did not accept payment for the last week of work, and amicably ended the contract. At no time during this process did the client indicate that he thought I was being unreasonable, and in fact even offered me another writing contract a couple of months later. I do not understand the logic behind the feedback given to me here, and do not agree with it.
