If you're looking for a low risk, high reward writer who can get the job done on time and without hassle, you just found him. My writing for digital content, advertising, direct marketing, and collateral has won national awards and I've taught the subject for ADWEEK magazine and the University of Washington. My background is also well-suited to business writing, proposals, speeches, and presentations. I have written and delivered hundreds of presentations, keynote speeches, and seminars. I'm a full-time freelance writer so I always have time to get your project completed quickly. While new to the employee side of Freelancer, I've been an employer since 2008 with 110 five-star projects. I know what clients want from a freelancer and can deliver. I also develop web sites and have good working knowledge of WordPress, PHP, mySQL, and Apache. This has been valuable to some clients when the words spill over into technical issues. I look forward to working with you!

    “islandcommuter was amazing to work with... There aren't words to describe how much I enjoyed working with him on this project. But if there were words to accurately describe the fantastic experience I had, I am sure islandcommuter could come up with them. I am not great at writing reviews - but if I were to hire anyone to do the perfect job for me, it would be islandcommuter. I look forward to hopefully working with him in the future. I would absolutely recommend this freelancer to anyone that needs any type of writing done, in a heartbeat. Thanks again!”

    “Islandcommuter did a fantastic job on navigating through quite a tedious project. I had six bios that I needed written. He was able to make each one unique and stand-out even when there could be a lot of similarities between the six. He was able to communicate not only the skills and background that each person brought to the table but also embody the experience and the benefits of working with each of the individuals. Islandcommuter has continued to be an ease to work with and return work that is on time, on budget and helps me to continue my marketing efforts.”
