Our Team

PenStars is the brainchild of two freelancers with more than 15 years’ combined experience in online work.

Walter Akolo is a trusted trainer, blogger and marketer, best known as the owner of the resource-rich FreelancerKenya. Named one of the fastest-rising entrepreneurs in Kenya by a top Kenyan blog, Walter has won an international traffic contest, written for the Huffington Post and been featured in Paysa. He’s been running online businesses since 2011 and brings both training and business acumen to our team.

Spike Wyatt is a published author and freelance editor. He’s been freelancing since 2008. He usually stays out of the limelight, editing articles and books and working with companies such as PetMD, Springbok Properties and SpinOutDay. Spike handles the technical side of PenStars and adds his editing experience to the team.

We also have an incredible group of international writers, editors and scorers, mostly from the US and the UK. They assess your submissions and provide critical insight to help you craft outstanding content every time.

We look forward to working with you!
