    I am a UK based Senior Consultant with Twelve years of experience, started out as a programmer, moved into Quality Assurance, then into Technical Authoring and then grew into a seasoned Consultant Business Analyst with hands on experience working for startups as well as Fortune 500 customers such as Oracle, GE Capital, Reuters Plc, etc to name a few. I have freed up enough of my time to be able to offer my skills as a Consultant for hire. I am a highly motivated self-starter who enjoys intrinsic job challenges and works well unsupervised with a team player attitude. I currently am very successful in my career using skills honed over the years. But working on just my own stuff is not enough for me. I need to be involved in other things, in other places, facing new challenges, dealing with people. If you are looking for an experienced Project Manager, Quality Manager, Documentation Manager, or a Software Consultant Analyst, please feel free to contact me. I do things right. Professionally. Properly. Always. I do not cut corners, and do not compromise on quality, accuracy, performance, usability or capability as I have done it all before. I give 100%. I may have other clients, I do have other projects, but yours, yours gets my undivided attention when I am on your clock. And even when I am off your clock, I still focus on and work on your needs. I put my name on things I do. On the documents I write, on the projects I deliver. By putting my name on them, I stand by them. I focus on agile deliverables. For documents, I iterate on drafts. For managing, I engage frequently. Experience has shown that time is the enemy, that things change over time and that long, slow, structured delivery, traditional delivery, no longer works. Flexibility, agility, and working closely together, works well. Here is a list of my Service Offerings: Technical Marketing - Web Copywriting - Brochures - Proposals - Presentations User Experience - User & Functional Guides - Operation Manuals - Training Manuals - Reference Guides - Online Help Systems - Wikis -eBooks - PPT/Flash Instructional Design, E-Courses - Documentation Evaluation Business Analysis - Requirements gathering - Functional Specifications - Technical Specifications - System Evaluation Technical Skills - HTML - Photoshop - Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PPT) - Adobe Acrobat Software Testing Project Management (Not exhaustive...)  less

    My career goal? Self-improvement! As a multimedia designer, my career depends on the quality of my work. So I strive for perfection, knowing I can never reach it. My desire? To continue improving my skills while making money. What does that mean for you? What problem of yours can I solve? If you need a well written article, I can do that for you and even toss in a bit of humor for free. Need a hip new 3D logo, I got you covered. If you want some sweet effects for your video, I might even be able to do that. And there are times when it seems my entire life has been spent fixing the computer problems of others. I am, however, a sociable person who enjoys talking and helping others have a better computer experience.  less
