Hello, my name is David Murphy, and I am a freelance writer with a BA in Journalism and a BA (Hons) in Journalism and Visual Media from Griffith College, Dublin, Ireland. I have a passion for storytelling and creating content for traditional and online media channels, and I am always striving to create high-quality and engaging content.
I am currently operating as a freelance writer creating proponent-specific content—for traditional and online channels—for various companies and groups. This work includes writing articles, profiles, event-coverage pieces, blog posts, marketing pieces, press releases and digital and social media content. Along with my writing, I am also working in a copyediting/writing and proofreading capacity on a project-by-project basis.
I have previously worked as a staff writer for the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) editorial team located in the university’s Marketing Communications Department (MARCOM). At KAUST, I focused on creating a variety of written content for the university’s traditional and online media channels. During my time at the university, I researched, edited and wrote over 130 science-related articles featuring KAUST researchers, postdocs, students and staff. I also worked on internal communications, including management of the university's blog and writing and publishing daily campus-wide email announcements.
Current projects include creating online and traditional print content for MARCOM and the KAUST Red Sea Research Center and various content creation and copywriting work for the international marketing and communications company, EMG. I am also working in a proofreading capacity for REDSTAR Works' Hangzhou and Qingdao monthly magazines.
