Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $16

I completed my degree in journalism last January and since then have completed a postgraduate diploma in London.

I have experience at a number of regional newspapers, some on the sports desk, and for magazines. I have also been part of a team starting a magazine and website from scratch and releasing it to the public following my time working on Street Food Business.

I have held a blog for a number of years that showcases my work as well as for general blogging. (oneclearagenda.blogspot.com).

Get in touch if you want to know more.
