I provide for my family by doing something I love and doing it well. With 15+ years of web development experience, I've been full-time freelance since 2011, focusing on custom admin consoles, data-driven sites, and API integration. My "go to toolbox" is PHP ( preferably with Symfony or CodeIgniter ), MySQL, jQuery, Linux sys admin knowledge, Git, and Bootstrap.

I believe in excellence. Writing isn't about just putting words on paper, it's about expressing ideas. Like any art, the writer has only been successful if the reader sees what he sees, hears what he hears, and feels what he feels. I am an experienced writer with over 180 books published; in addition to my 500+ page web site and 3 blogs. Let's just say, I've been writing for a while. I started writing as an engineer, writing proposals for the company I worked for. As such, my writing had to be clear, concise and answer the questions before they were asked. My writing had to convince the higher-ups in the company to spend money, make changes and believe in what I was saying. When I write, I strive for clarity, simplicity and something that will stir the reader to action. Any subject, no matter how dull it seems, has something in it that can excite; otherwise it would die from apathy. I want to find that thing which excites and express it to others. I have Five general areas in which I consider myself a strong writer. While each of them seem totally separate from each other, they form the structure of who I am, and where I've come from. 2 - Survival and Prepping - I started out as a survivalist as a teen, in the 1970s. That was the latter days of the Cold War and along with some friends, I had plans to head for the Colorado Rockies. Seeing the need, I started studying survival. I guess that just never left me. With the resurgence of interest in survival brought about in the modern prepping movement, I decided that my knowledge was needed. There is too much being written by people who don't know survival, to sell to this niche. When I write about it, it's from the viewpoint of personal experience. When I explain how to do something, it's because I've already done it. 1 - Technical subjects - I'm not talking about product reviews here, I'm talking about engineering technical subjects. As a former engineer, I can grasp technical issues, and explain them in a way that others can grasp what I am saying. Although not normally considered "technical" I must include the building trades amongst this, as I have also been a contractor. If you need "how-to" articles written on the building trades, I can almost do it in my sleep. I find that very few technical people can write well, and very few writers understand technical issues well. I guess that makes me the oddball. Maybe I'm the oddball you need. 2 - Education - I am passionate about the need to educate our children; to bring about reform in our schools; and to bring technology into the classroom. If something isn't done about our educational system, the United States will no longer be able to be world leader, we'll slide back into being a third world country. 3 - Marriage and Family - Amongst my personal writing, there is a fairly large section dealing with marriage, family issues, child raising, and maintaining a healthy marriage relationship. Of my three blogs, one is a daily posting; it is called: "Romantic Act of the Day." Need I say any more? 4 - Christianity and the Bible - Most of the books I have written are for Christians, the Church and teaching about the Bible. I hold a masters degree in Biblical Studies, and an honorary doctorate degree, awarded to me for my writing. No, I don't know it all, I'm just trying to learn it all. I won't say that I can't write about other areas, because I can. I have written a fair amount about business as well. But these four areas are my strengths. The question is, are those the strengths you need?
Hi, I'm Jon Simpson - thank you for visiting my profile. I am a multi-media artist and producer that specializes in creating across a broad range of visual, audio and conceptual contexts. Since earliest memory I have been very diversely creative and I am now utilizing a wide array of professional design tools that channel that ever-expanding experience within the digital realm. As a "generalist" artist I seek to master and stay current with each software tool, not merely to maintain cutting edge capability, but also to maximize and expand the creative options available to myself and my clients. My primary video/2D animation software is Adobe After Effects (5 years), which is now integrated with and partnering with Maxon's Cinema 4D, my 3D software. I am currently ranked in the top 20 out of more than 6,000 on the oDesk After Effects skills test, and in the top 2 percentile on the basic English skills test. For audio, I have been producing in Adobe Audition for over 10 years, everything from music composition (5 instruments across diverse genres, including full symphonic orchestration), to managing multi-language voice overs, world-class singers, genuine foley sound effects, podcasts, instructional courses, children's stories and more: http://www.reverbnation.com/AvalonStudios I also have more than 7 years of experience in Photoshop and Flash and over 3 years with Illustrator, Camtasia and Cinema 4D. Educationally, I have a Bachelor's degree in philosophy from the University of North Florida with subsequently highly developed critical writing skills, able to help you with scripts, articles, copy, editing and much more. I am in the -5 GMT time zone but as I am willing to accommodate any time zone and schedule, my availability is very flexible and generous. Contract-wise, I enjoy doing various kinds of projects but I am also interested in developing long-term relationships in more specific contexts with individuals and organizations I resonate with. Please enjoy examples of my work in my oDesk portfolio, read client reviews, and feel free to contact me, even if you just have questions and want to explore possibilities. I look forward to the opportunity of creating with you! Jon
