I thoroughly enjoy research and writing about a wide range of animal subjects.

My long career of professional writing means I have developed impeccable writing, grammar, spelling, punctuation and proof-reading skills.

Data Scientist

Spain - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 16 - Portfolio: 7

Do you have some question that requires a statistical or machine learning answer? No problem. As a data scientist with 15 years of experience, I have the technical knowledge and the communication skills needed to solve your problem and, most important, give an answer that you can apply to your field of interest. What I offer to you is a full data analysis/machine learning stack, including: - Getting and organizing your data. - Selecting the most relevant statistical or machine learning technique for your case. - Applying the technique to your data. - Writing a report that explains every step taken and makes a interpretation of the results. All written with enough technical detail, but that doesn't require a depth statistical knowledge to follow. - Assistance in applying the results to your specific field. I can do all this using any or several of the following: R, MATLAB, Python, MySQL. Everybody can apply an out of the shell statistical algorithm to some benchmark data. But I'm an expert in the tricks needed to apply those algorithms to real data.

eCommerce Marketing Manager & Analyst

United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 6

I'm an experienced eComm marketing strategist, with a focus on data analysis. If you sell products or services online, you (hopefully!) already have the data necessary to make smart, strategic marketing decisions. My focus is on synthesizing what your customers and potential customers are already telling you through their user behavior, and turning that into actionable tactics. I've worked with both small ($1M/yr revenue) and large ($4B+/yr) companies. My experience is broad, across various marketing channels like PPC, email, social, mobile, SEO, affiliate, content, retargeting, PLA. I enjoy it all, but my passion is the combination of data and creativity. Ask yourself this: what effect does my visitors' screen resolution have on my conversion rate? Or: What was the result of the most recent A/B landing page test for my Widget Adwords campaign? Or even: Traffic from social media channels has spiked over the past two months thanks to our content efforts. What sort of revenue or ROI are we seeing across each channel? I'm well-equipped and experienced to handle all of these and more! I think most businesses don't need marketers...they need someone who can turn the available data into a legitimate test and who understand the driving mechanisms of purchase mentality. Send me an invite today, and let's talk!
