    My first employer was the US Coast Guard as a Damage Controlman. This entailed plumbing, carpentry, shipboard firefighting, chemical biological warfare and environmental protection. My job had me out in the field but I also did a lot of record keeping and imputing data into the computer. For the last 6 years I have worked for a company called PK Safety Supply. I wore many hats and did many jobs. I was customer service which entailed answering phone calls, order impute, estimates, researching for customer applications, walk-ins. I also learned the accounting aspect as far as billing customers and imputing invoices from vendors. I learned the shipping and receiving so I could receive shipments and ship orders out. I also helped with the 3 web sites that PK Safety had. I added item description, updated prices, added new item pages with the pictures, prices, detailed descriptions and any file or instruction manual relevant to the item. Last but not least I was also the gas monitor repair technician for the company. I repaired gas monitors that came in. I replaced pumps, sensors, batteries, and screens and calibrated the instruments.  less

    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

    Well, I can go on and fill up this section with lot of stupid, wordy and boring stuff that most of the clients don't even have enough time to read. I can also talk about my skills, passion, vision and everything, but what's point? I mean I have been looking at the profiles of thousands of other freelancers around and one thing is unfortunately very common there: People copy each other's info just to make their profile look as good as someone else's is. I won't do the same mistake. But what I do want to tell you, is this: * I am a fast, furious and extremely curious software tester ** If you work with me once, you will never have to look for any other software tester around. You have my word on this *** I am equipped with a variety of android and iOS gadgets, mobile phones and tablets **** I can write comprehensive test plans, test cases and bug reports ***** Bring me your application and I will get you a complete list of all functional, usability, text, layout, cross-browser compatibility and various other types of bugs that your past testers could never find out for you ****** I know you want someone with amazing English communication skills. I am the one you were looking for Enough talking, let's get to work now!  less
