A Passionate Storyteller.



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.

Please get in touch at dmurphyfreelance1@outlook.com if you need help with any of the following services:• Brand narrative and messaging • Content Production (both traditional and online) • Content Marketing and Development • Corporate Communications • Copywriting and Editing • Creative and Technical Writing • Digital and Social Media Content • Proofreading • Public Relations Content • Thought Leadership Content.

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 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.



Throughout my career, I have developed a talent for finding and covering some of the most interesting stories. I never write an article and then forget about it. Take a look below at a selection of my most interesting published articles.



Thanks to her globetrotting family, KAUST postdoctoral fellow Isabelle Schulz's earliest journey came at five months old, when her German parents Manfred and Doris moved from Switzerland to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

My portfolio contains all of my published content, including over 200+ articles for both online and traditional media channels.



Professional and deadline orientated are the words that come to mind when I think of David Murphy. I worked with David at KAUST University. Each writing assignment that I handed him was completed with dedication and completed on time. He is an accomplished writer who can handle anything from journalistic articles to marketing copywriting and web content. In addition, he comes up with ideas for content and recommendations to make processes smoother. I highly recommend David. He was easy to work with and his flexibility as a writer was always appreciated. He would be an asset to any organization.

Through his passion for story-telling, David has contributed enormously to advancing the Alumni Affairs agenda at KAUST. His stories about alumni have captured the essence of what makes our university community truly special, and have perfectly communicated the academic and professional achievements of KAUST alumni living in Saudi Arabia and all over the world. As a colleague, David is highly professional, detail oriented, a fantastic listener, and someone who keeps his promises in delivering a high-quality product by deadline.
