I am an Irish web designer and online business consultant, currently living and working in Berlin. I am passionate about helping small businesses and startups achieve their business goals; whether through building ecommerce and service websites that perfectly serve your online needs, or using data and analytics to optimise online marketing strategies and maximise your resources. My skills have been acquired through over a decade of personal, hands-on experience. It was while working as a freelance fashion photographer in Dublin some ten years ago that I realised I was enjoying coding my website and learning online marketing strategies more than the actual photo shoots! I retrained as a social media strategist and Google Analytics consultant, and gradually honed my knowledge and skills until I became Director of Ecommerce for an international fashion label. It was during this period that I noticed the overwhelming number of decisions facing business owners and entrepreneurs trying to establish an online presence. Even the first step of setting up a website involves a huge range of decisions, from choosing a good hosting provider to finding the right platform to manage your website; all the while trying to manage the time and budget constraints that affect every business. I realised with my combination of web design and online marketing skills I was perfectly placed to be able help navigate this maze of options – so now that's exactly what I do. I am committed to clear, open communication, and my ultimate goal is a happy client. I treat each client's business as though it were my own and am dedicated to helping you find ways of taking your business to the next level, whether you're just starting out, or feeling in needing of a fresh strategy. Looking forward to working with you!

I currently work as a web designer for the one of the largest pro audio retailers in the country. I'm proficient in HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery with a significant amount of experience with PHP and Bootstrap. I focus a lot on User Interface (UI) design and optimizing the User Experience (UX). I work quickly and design/develop to the highest standards. I'm really easygoing and fun to work with and I'm not afraid to buckle down and things done. On top of all the web stuff I also do logo and branding design, t-shirt designs, photo editing and manipulation, and a bunch of other random design work. I'm not afraid to take on new things and I'm always willing to learn. I am also a big believer in "You get what you put into it" because this applies to all aspects of life. With freelance work if someone is asking $5/hour chances are you're going to get website that looks like you paid $5/hour. If I ask for $50/hour I am going to put in at least $100/hour worth of work and provide a result that more often than not reflects work worth more than $50/hour. I do not by any means try to take advantage of anybody. A big reason I do freelance work is because, well, I enjoy doing it. But at the same time, one's most valuable asset is their time, and I still need to be compensated for mine. Bottom line is — I will charge, after much consideration, what I feel would be a very fair price for both the client and myself.
I have done masters in BUSINESS AND MARKETING and have, " MORE THEN TEN YEARS OF EXPERIENCE" in the fields of, SALES DEVELOPMENT, PROJECT MANAGEMENT, TELEMARKETING, AUDIO PRODUCTION, STATISTICS, BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT, CUSTOMER SERVICES, CUSTOMER SUPPORT, ADMINISTRATION, EMAIL HANDLING, VIRTUAL ASSISTANCE AND CREATIVE WRITING etc I have a diversified experience assisting Asian, American., Canadian, Australian and the British customers.

During the last two decades, I have written or edited for top global companies such as Lockheed Martin, Philips Consumer Electronics, and Siemens Medical Solutions. I have also performed video script writing and voice-over for international power equipment company Husqvarna. For one contractor I had outside of ODesk, I traveled to interview or talked on the phone with subjects for profile articles and received some very favorable response from the subjects and the employer about the articles I produced. The contract, which lasted nearly two years, was a very fruitful association. I am an excellent editor and derive satisfaction from helping people sharpen their content. A challenge of editing is its subjective nature--all sorts of styles exist within the parameters of commonly accepted grammar guidelines. So, every editing job involves give and take between writer and editor, as well as a "meeting of the minds" in terms word usage, phrasing, and style. I enjoy working with authors to craft content that is clear and interesting and accomplishes their goals. I really appreciate ODesk because of its professionalism and the opportunity it offers to work with people involved in interesting projects all over the world.
