    I am a computer scientist whose main skills are in the field of data analysis, pattern recognition, statistical software, machine learning and large scale system design and integration. I have developed systems using Neural Networks, Markov chains, Support Vector Machines in various applications: OCR, image processing, data analysis, text indexing and retrieval. I am also proficient in 3D image visualization using common off the shelf libraries and methodologies, either low or high level, like OpenGL, DirectX, VTK, Java3D. I understand and use common ray tracing programs. I understand image processing topics like segmentation, thresholding, classification. I have worked in the past in a 3d Face recognition European project. I know the OpenCV library quite well. In the field of "general programming" I have a good understanding of Databases, multi threaded applications, sockets, pipes, encryption (symmetric and asymmetric), compiler design, operating systems, low level data structure in memory and on disk, data integrity. I consider myself an expert in data structures and algorithms: trees, queues, lists, b-trees, hash tables; I use standard libraries like STL, Boost, Java generics. I have a good knowledge of SQL and data normalization however I have also used custom No-SQL databases like Datadraw, MapDB, Tokyo Cabinet, Zope. I know all the basic algorithms and templates used in every day coding; regarding data integrity and security. Compression (lossy and lossless), symmetric and asymmetric encryption, public certificates, I have worked with OpenSSL programming, encrypted web services, packet sniffers. I am proficient in all the common every day languages with an emphasis on C++ and Perl. But I can use: Java, Python, Visual Basic, C#, PLSQL, Delphi. I know all the Object Oriented Programming concepts and design patterns and I use them if the need arises, but I am also able to write object-free programs in C or functional languages (like Haskell or Scheme). I know modern version control systems like git and mercurial, even if I can use also older ones like Subversion or CVS. I know Windows programming and API quite well. I have used WPF and WCF to create desktop applications in Windows and web services. I have used Linux and Gui toolkits like Qt which are platform independent. I know XML, XSL, I have used several parsers like the MsXML or Xpath. I know how to validate a XML with a schema. I have worked with a team that handled thousands of XML documents relating to air crashes in a SQL server database. I am able to talk and write in English with fluency. If anything is not listed here either I have forgotten to list it or I can probably learn it quite fast, so don't hesitate in asking!  less

    I have been freelancing in video production for the past 6 years and on oDesk for 2. Having worked on everything from corporate/commercial videos to live events to music videos and feature films, my experience in the film and video industry is vast and varied. I bring a high level of polish and professionalism to all my projects and have a great eye for design and editing. Many will claim to be video professionals but can't produce anything of quality or note. I guarantee my work to be of top broadcast quality which will separate your product or service from the competition. I am located in Canada and as such will have no language barriers which could present problems in communication. I may not work as cheap as some contractors found elsewhere, but the old adage is true, you get what you pay for. If quality is of importance to you, the value of hiring me is clear. Thanks so much for taking the time to review my profile and I'm confident that I can deliver the highest quality video productions you require.  less

    I'm a gifted storyteller, dedicated to helping clients tell theirs. I say this unabashedly and with complete confidence. The proof, of course, is the words. Today, finding the right words is more important than ever, and I strive to under-promise but over-deliver. The name of my company says it all: words-are-my-biz And my philosophy is simple: The right words sell. The wrong words leave sales on the table. WHO AM I? I’m a professional writer living in Portland, Oregon with a lifelong passion for the power of the written word. I’ve written everything from novels to blogs, sales collateral to web content, ad copy to letters, business proposals to sales plans and training manuals. Not to mention a few thousand papers getting my four kids through high school and college. I love what I do. WHAT IS MY BACKGROUND? I bring more than thirty years of sales and marketing business management experience to every project, and by this I’m talking about major corporations to mid-size companies and start-ups, working in fields including software, real estate, law, publishing, advertising and services. I confess to having a particular fondness for high degree-of-difficulty challenges. JUST HOW DO I DO WHAT I DO? By asking questions, listening and considering what I hear, followed by collaborative brainstorming to develop a plan we both embrace with confidence and enthusiasm. As you seek synergy within your organization, I seek it with my clients. It pays huge dividends. The common thread is in finding the way to communicate more effectively, internally and externally, with staff, customers and prospects. The common challenge is in identifying the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and unique competitive factors confronting each client. HOW CAN YOU LEARN MORE ABOUT ME?

    I have 12+ years experience in professional acting, including a BFA from the University of Toronto. I have worked with celebrities such as Donald Trump, U2 and the Black Eyed Peas. I have been writing my own scripts and managing my own characters for many of those years, and have produced and written 4 full-length theatre shows. I have written many novels, short stories, and novellas.I have also written for non-fiction novels on entrepreneurship. I would like to explore my creative writing more, as it’s an avenue I enjoy just as much as playing the characters. I believe my years on stage and previous experience give me assets to bring to the table. My years of playing characters has given me creativity to write them.
