Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $18

Loving a challenge, I thrive in all creative, changeable and fast paced environments. I'm a highly articulate communicator with excellent writing, research and presentation skills. English is also my native language.

As a freelance writer I run a column for a Milan-based fashion and culture online magazine. Its only Rome correspondent, I create well-crafted, humorous, and engaging articles for newcomers and expatriates in the Eternal City. The 'How To' pieces are informative yet fun, and have increased the site's readership.

Service Description

Due to having worked on a wide variety of topics, I have a flexible and adaptable writing style. Respecting and understanding the goals of my employers is vital when crafting content, both for consistency and professional integrity.

My work ranges from punchy and gritty, to objective and academic. Passionate and goal-driven, I'm comfortable working in varying projects. My writing style in my column is humorous, and based on my life in Rome. For my health pieces however, the content is research-based, factual, and meant to create awareness on positive health practices.

I'm respectful of deadlines, and pledge to provide material to be proud of. I believe that two-way communication is essential in task completion, and am willing to utilise Skype or Viber along with email correspondence. As a published author of short stories, and with my background in creative writing, I can provide articulate material that is engaging for a desired audience. I like to think outside of the box, and brainstorm new, and innovative ways to inform and entice my readership. I'm also an advocate of team work, and am keen to combine my professional experiences with like-minded employers.
