Overall, a young accomplished professional who is in on a mission to reach all the goals I've set for myself. With 7+ years of marketing, public relations, graphic design and journalism consulting under my belt. I am pushing for continued growth in both of my small business ventures: Halfstack Magazine and Bella+Sophia Clothing. I have found that in these rough times, being able to take on any opportunity that is presented to you and running with it can bring along many unexpected successes. Never give up is my mantra and as a professional I meet each day with the ambition and initiative that will allow me to face any road block head on. I put in 110% into every job and opportunity I am given and I am able to produce positive results for my clients and my businesses. My background includes writing for major online publications, creating graphics for interactive media, magazines and catalogs, writing copy for websites, writing press releases, pitching online and traditional media, getting product placement in national publications and on television, organizing and producing medium scale events for retailers, organizing sponsorship deals, working on charitable marketing directives, strategizing and executing social media endeavors and working with young companies to further develop their brand identity. My educational background is in fashion design, fashion marketing management with a concentration in graphics design and brand identity. I am a graduate of Benedictine University's MBA program focused on entrepreneurship and small business management. I truly believe that anything in life is possible, if you put your mind to it. I've come a long way from the ghettos of Chicago as a young Hispanic girl and I've made it my goal to never become a victim of my circumstances. I look to inspire others as much as I look to be inspired. Due to this, I also work as an adjunct professor teaching in local Art Schools in the Chicago area. I'm open to opportunities that I can share with my readers through Halfstack and on the lookout for Chicago's up and coming talent in the music, art and fashion worlds.
Never underestimate the power of a story. Throughout my 10-year career in journalism, communications, and content marketing marketing demonstrates storytelling's power to inform, persuade, and enlighten.

I believe everyone has a story worth telling, and my job is to tell it - how it deserves to be told. Talk to me, and let me tell your story.

I'm a specialist in the reporting of quantitative data. I use VBA in Excel and PowerPoint to automate report production, enabling fast, accurate and attractive visual output, online and offline. As well as traditional charts and tables, I can use VBA to automate the presentation of data in many different graphical ways, opening the door to a much wider range of infographic styles. PowerPoint doesn't have to look like PowerPoint! I have also used automation tool E-tabs Enterprise for 8 years and provided training and consultancy services in report automation. I also use SPSS syntax to clean, merge and aggregate respondent level data. I started working in market research in 1995 as a graduate trainee executive and worked my way up to director level, handing large international accounts and teams of executives. I have strong project management skills and detailed hands-on knowledge of market research processes, and in particular how data can be presented.
Highly motivated advertising sales/marketing Account Executive with professional voice over training and experience.

Thoroughly trained in media sales, I can begin pretty much any job right away. Should your project require a voice talent, I am able to record and send directly from my home office. I also have access to a professional recording studio for any final cuts. I look forward to hearing from and working with you. Thanks for your time and consideration. -Robert O'Riley

Since the beginning of my career I´ve centered my professional interests in learning and getting involved in new technologies, which took me to choose the Instrumentation and Control Systems disciplines as my main professional expertise. The involvement with other disciplines and the participation in the coordination of multidisciplinary teams came naturally, when I reached 34, I occupied the Technical direction of a multidisciplinary international company (Badger Engineers) a 900 employees company. Being involved in the state of the art of my specialty I´ve always worked with very special people with whom I´ve learned the dedication to the continuous effort to keep up dated, and the team work. Despite of being involved in Managerial activities, I never left behind the involvement in the technical tasks of the groups I´ve coordinated in several countries around the world. As a personal choice, even when occupying a C.E.O. position, I have always been involved in the phases of , Client´s negotiation, strategy definition, risk analysis, Definition of engineering solutions, Cost Control, Quality Control, Planning, FAT supervision, Commissioning and Start up. I´ve been involved in several International negotiations (Brazil, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Norway, Finland, Algeria, Morocco, Angola, Turkey, Russia, Mexico, USA) In July of the last year I decided to sell my shares of Contromation S.A. in order to freely look for a position where I could apply all the experience I´ve acquired during my 43 years career. I hope that you find that interesting enough to give me a chance to demonstrate what I can do for your company.
