Who I am... Network Engineer with 5+ years of experience working with a variety of technologies from different vendor like Cisco, VMware, Microsoft, Watchguard, Barracuda, etc. I had designed and implemented networks from scratch starting on the infrastructure (Routing and Switching), Security and finally the Applications (Unified Communications and Collaboration). My Mission... I specialized on designing and implementing network solutions for small, medium and large businesses in many different vertical markets like the oil and gas industry, banking, food and beverages industry and others. I had achieved customer satisfaction 100% of the time and exceeded their expectations while staying on-budget, meeting deadlines and finding new business opportunities inside the company and the customers. Always looking for the biggest challenges that help me excel myself not only in the networking field, but also in the business management side of the company making myself an integral and interdisciplinary engineer capable of achieving the impossible.
My 20+ year career in communicating ideas has come full circle on the Web. I am a trained Journalist, Filmmaker, and former Fulbright Scholar who can work with you on a variety of writing, marketing, crowdfunding, and media needs. Special knowledge in film history, film criticism, and the arts. An American English native speaker, I also have a background teaching English as a second language.
My ideas begin with the belief that for good design, everything must have a purpose. When everything has a purpose, design is useful, beneficial and aids understanding. Good design comes from a unity of purpose that’s visible when the client’s message, the product and the presentation are all interrelated. My design process starts with detailed planning. This helps create economy of design, an economy that’s not wasteful, respects our client’s investment of time and money and is built to last. I strive for communication that is clear, simple and centered on the message. I seek an appropriate and just solution in all jobs, whether that’s a full re brand for a large company or major public body, or a business card for a small start-up.
During the last two decades, I have written or edited for top global companies such as Lockheed Martin, Philips Consumer Electronics, and Siemens Medical Solutions. I have also performed video script writing and voice-over for international power equipment company Husqvarna. For one contractor I had outside of ODesk, I traveled to interview or talked on the phone with subjects for profile articles and received some very favorable response from the subjects and the employer about the articles I produced. The contract, which lasted nearly two years, was a very fruitful association. I am an excellent editor and derive satisfaction from helping people sharpen their content. A challenge of editing is its subjective nature--all sorts of styles exist within the parameters of commonly accepted grammar guidelines. So, every editing job involves give and take between writer and editor, as well as a "meeting of the minds" in terms word usage, phrasing, and style. I enjoy working with authors to craft content that is clear and interesting and accomplishes their goals. I really appreciate ODesk because of its professionalism and the opportunity it offers to work with people involved in interesting projects all over the world.
I have over 20 years of experience in the customer service/sales field as a call center specialist. Achieved top producer in sales for your Travel Biz in 2009. Worked with At&t wireless services where I started out as a customer service representative moved up to retention department where my retention rate was very high and advance into technical support as well. I have worked in several fields from customer service to sales, appointment setter, telesales, cold calling, to appointment scheduler for doctors and other companies. I now work from home part-time with STS Capital Ventures as a setter. With my wide variety of experience and expertise I believe I would be a great candidate to work for your company. I am also bilingual English and Spanish. I have a deep passion in helping people in providing the best customer service/sales or in whatever field I work in. I'm self-Motivated, welcome change and challenges and strive to be the best in all I do.
I am a senior web programmer offering website development services that include full website development, custom JS programming, design, linux server configuration, SEO and more. For best results, please challenge me with something new to create from the ground up. I'm highly motivated by modern design. For example, why require unnecessary server interactions when the browser can process WEB services via AJAX only when required? Efficient modern software architecture is both elegant and practical: apps run faster.
Professional and hobbyist developer, with over 15 years of actual development under the belt and 6 years in 'hands-on' management positions (as engagement manager in a consulting firm and then as a CTO in a web startup). My technical experience ranges from desktop (C/C++/C#/Java/VB, scripting in Python/Ruby/VBA), embedded (PIC, ATMEGA, ARM), web (PHP, Ruby on Rails, JS/Coffeescript, HTML5 and some understanding of web design principles and UX construction) and ERP/Business Intelligence (SAP BW, QlickView). These days (2014), I am mostly doing web dev (front-end/back-end) in Ruby, Python and CoffeeScript - they allow very quick iterations and cutting through tons of boilerplate to get to a MVP as quickly as possible. My skills in C/C++ are a bit rusty, but I'll gladly dust them off for an interesting project :) I read Java and C# and don't mind using them as external dependencies, but I do not enjoy working with those. As for my management experience, I have been leading small and large engagements (up to 2 millions EUR) in offshore settings (India, China), both on-site and remotely I feel like I have a good understanding of the communication and management challenges involved in freelancing. As your contractor, I see myself adding value by challenging your requirements, helping you define clear specifications and, if the assignment is large enough to need more than myself as a developer, I can help you screen out other offshore resources and simplify your outsourcing experience.

Greetings! My name is Daniel Edwards. I'm a graphic designer with 15 years of experience in print, web and brand design. I charge a little more than some of the designers on oDesk, but what you get for that extra money is someone who's a fast, efficient, and who will deliver an amazing product the first time without any of the complications you might get from someone charging less. I'm all about communication and I love feedback, because every project is a group effort between the client and the designer. I'm also absolutely professional, very prompt, and I can turn around a project lightening fast. My experience includes designing magazines, books, brochures, presentations, websites and web graphics, mobile apps, logos and identities, outdoor campaigns, vehicle and textile graphics and a lot more. You can find more of my work on my freelance site at mindcontrolindustries.com, as well as more about who I am and what I can do. I'm happy to provide work samples, and if you have any questions or need any other information, just let me know :). Thanks, - Daniel Edwards
