I first put pen to paper (professionally) in 2003 for an article published in The Hindu Business Line, a reputed newspaper in Chennai, India. Since then, my writing journey has involved writing copy at Cactus Communications (one of Ethiopia’s premier ad agencies), and freelancing.
Time flies by faster than I’d like to acknowledge, and I’ve now been freelancing for over seven years. During that time I’ve written product descriptions, buyer guides, how-to articles, news stories, business proposals, trivia questions, and more for dozens of clients around the globe (isn’t the Internet a wonderful thing?).
Stories that capture the reader’s attention
David is a great storyteller. Not just with the pen, but also in photography. With minimal direction, he captures stories that capture the reader’s attention. His prompt communication gave me the confidence that our coffee farmers' stories were in the right hands. If you have a chance to work with David, do it.
His writing and editing skills set the example in my office
For the 4 years he worked with us, David quickly became one of our most valuable team members. It’s been a weight off my shoulders knowing that I can trust David to provide an accurate assessment of each job. His writing and editing skills set the example in my office.
Got a lot of good feedback on David’s work
It was great to work with David as our lead Photographer for our Missions Magazine. We got a lot of good feedback on David’s work.
David provided some solid writing that stood out from the pack. Even for some of the mundane content, he managed to add some creativity and a unique touch to all the copy he wrote for us. On top of that, he's a great guy, bringing enthusiasm and good energy to the projects he works on. Highly recommended!
I also edit content for online lessons and publications and spend a decent amount of time translating content between English and Amharic.
I am currently available to:
- Write well-researched and in-depth articles for websites in English,
- Edit English content, and
- Translate documents between English and Amharic.
I am happy to work on any type of content (except adult-themed content), but I excel at topics related to travel, technology, and anything to do with a process of some sort (user manuals, how-to guides, etc.).
If you have a writing or editing need, send me a message and we’ll see how we can work together.
