Overview

From a hundred-page document to a single well-composed tweet, I love to communicate through the words I write. As a freelance writer I am messenger, and I'm confident in my ability to deliver a client's good news.

I graduated from the University of Minnesota and have experience writing news, ads, web and print copy, blog posts, and content for social media. Past clients include Minnesota Life College, Comics Beat, and West Side Perk. Check out my samples on Elance and my portfolio at mattokeefe.weebly.com.
