    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 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

    Executive Summary: "Absolutely PHENOMENAL technical writer and communicator. Hire this person, seriously" - Client Feedback, ODesk, 2012 Professional freelance writer with 5 years experience, 3 as a seasoned veteran on ODesk. I Effectively create written material for a diverse clientele ranging from the translation of highly complex chemical concepts (a past project) into more "user friendly" material to general interest articles focused on SEO concepts and keyword usage. Adept at jumping into multiple roles and always eager to take on leadership roles and additional duties. Intelligent, creative, honest, and frank. Excellent at problem solving and taking initiative - if I do not know something, I will learn it and become an expert. I have a proven track record, a 4.88 rating, and a lot of very happy clients. Let me make you happy. Hire me and I will take care of all of your writing needs efficiently, with urgency, and with a sense of humor. I ask that you treat me with the same respect and courtesy that you would expect from me. I have worked with some borderline personalities in the very recent past and and will ONLY take clients who treat me with courtesy and respect, have excellent communication skills and who have clear goals and expectations from me for their project. There is no ODesk test for mind reading...yet. Please note, ODesk is ranking me as someone who only "replies rarely". This has only happened 3 times in the past 3 years and it was due to illness each time. I have learned how to disable my profile during these times and this shouldn't happen again.  less
