ABOUT ME

Screen Shot 2018-09-14 at 6.00.22 AM.png

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 create proponent-specific content for traditional and online channels for various international companies, groups and institutions. 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) Marketing Communications Department (MARCOM) editorial team. As part of a diverse editorial team, I focused on delivering various science-related content for the university’s traditional and online media channels. My role also included the management and publication of daily campus-wide email announcements and university blog posts. During my time at KAUST, from 2014 to 2018, I researched, edited and wrote over 130 science-related articles featuring researchers, postdoctoral fellows, students and staff. 


Since leaving KAUST in August 2018, I have continued to write and produce content for multiple Divisions and Centers at the university, including the Red Sea Research Center, Computer, Electrical and Mathematical Science and Engineering (CEMSE) Division, Global Branding and Communications, Marketing and Communications, the Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Department, and the Physical Science and Engineering (PSE) Division.


I have also worked with and created content for a broad range of international companies, including EMG Marcom and Milliken, among others.

TESTIMONIALS

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.
