    A business owner for the past 6 years I am interested in finding a career that is stable, challenging, and allows some relative freedom of work location. Previously as a business owner I had the opportunity, on several occasions to experience the perspective that a manager has about an employee. This perspective was priceless when making the move to becoming an employee as I came to understand the expectations that a manager has. As an employee I understand that honesty, communication, diligence, and attention to detail are extremely valuable traits that I must exhibit. General Skills · Attention to Detail · I believe that I am diligent, I wake up 5am MST and go to sleep at 12am MST, generally working on projects between those times. I like to start work early. · I believe I am a quick learner and often if I don’t understand something I will research it on my own time. · I like to regularly communicate the status of what I am working on, and note any issues I may have, and any updates I may have made. · I use the GTD(Getting Things Done Method) to take care of work projects and manage them. Software · Visual Studio: 3 Months · Adobe Dreamweaver: 12 Months(I was doing most of my web based programming in this before switching to Visual Studio) · UiPath Studio: 8 Months: A workflow manager with Screen Scraping capabilities loosely using C#. · General Microsoft Office: 10 years · myPHP Admin: 4 months: Manager for MySQL databases Coding Specific Experience · Javascript: 2 Months: By far the language that I am most skilled with · Java: 4 Month: During AP Computer Science Course · PHP 2 months · MySQL: 3 Months · C# 4 Months I also have the below experience and Skills that were developed through the time spent in business: 1. Large Data Entry tasks/projects(swivel chair) 2. Book keeping(I think it is very important to have very granular financial reports to know what is going on with all of your businesses money. 3.

Business Development(I believe in systemitizing businesses so that they can become scalable and/or franchisable. I use several pieces software to help automate the business process that can be automated. 7. Logo Design(I believe in creating minimalist logos that are visually striking, and memorable. I do this through a process of brain dumping, tradename, and trademark checking until I have the inspiration required to create your logo. 8.

    STOP. If you're reading this, you've probably already gone through dozens of oDesk profiles looking for the right person who can turn your product around. It might be cliche to say this, but yes, I'm the person you're looking for. ** I'm currently not accepting any new projects under 10 hours. Thanks for the interest. ** As one of the best UI & UX designers on oDesk, I constantly strive to understand how users react to certain elements and improve conversions. I consider good UX to be more than just pretty pixels. It's about user flow - being able to lead your customers step by step through each section of your site with minimal distraction. It's about making your users do what YOU want them to do, rather than helplessly hoping that they'll use the site the way you envision it. UI is like the makeup that goes on after - it's sole purpose is to attract and seduce customers to your site. This is exactly the reason why you would never see a model without makeup (Trust me, it's not a pretty sight). Without UI, you don't have a completed product. If you're looking for logo design, graphics design, photo editing, you're definitely looking at the wrong person. I focus on interface design and the user experience behind it because that's what I'm GREAT at. Hiring me for something else would just be a waste of time for both you and I. If you take a look at my profile, I don't negotiate rates. I charge what I charge because I'm better than all the profiles you've seen so far and it saves you hours of time in the long run because you'll end up with the finished product exactly the way you want it. I also specialize in Startup Consultation, having founded 6 startups myself ( 3 of them being marketplaces) and have worked for 5 companies including a Fortune 500. I've helped dozens of startups scale as a growth hacker and always come up with new innovative ways to beat the competition. You might have the world's greatest idea, but what's the use if it doesn't take off? I'm the guy you talk to for brutally honest, constructive feedback. I ask the hard questions and help you validate your idea because chances are - it's usually not as perfect an idea that you'd like to believe. I'll save you months (possibly years) of your time by teaching you what to focus on so you don't fail the first time. PLEASE NOTE: I am no longer doing UI without first doing a UX analysis. If users can't understand how to navigate through your site, it doesn't matter how pretty it looks because they're still going to be frustrated enough to never come back. I am open to signing NDAs if it makes you feel better, but I will no longer consult with startups until a contract has been made. Show me that you're serious and not wasting time by creating a contract upfront. For those looking for me to code the HTML/CSS/JS front end of your design to make it fully responsive and cross-browser compatible, I can do so at $100/hr. Still interested? Let's chat.  less
