Hi, I'm Jon Simpson - thank you for visiting my profile. I am a multi-media artist and producer that specializes in creating across a broad range of visual, audio and conceptual contexts. Since earliest memory I have been very diversely creative and I am now utilizing a wide array of professional design tools that channel that ever-expanding experience within the digital realm. As a "generalist" artist I seek to master and stay current with each software tool, not merely to maintain cutting edge capability, but also to maximize and expand the creative options available to myself and my clients. My primary video/2D animation software is Adobe After Effects (5 years), which is now integrated with and partnering with Maxon's Cinema 4D, my 3D software. I am currently ranked in the top 20 out of more than 6,000 on the oDesk After Effects skills test, and in the top 2 percentile on the basic English skills test. For audio, I have been producing in Adobe Audition for over 10 years, everything from music composition (5 instruments across diverse genres, including full symphonic orchestration), to managing multi-language voice overs, world-class singers, genuine foley sound effects, podcasts, instructional courses, children's stories and more: http://www.reverbnation.com/AvalonStudios I also have more than 7 years of experience in Photoshop and Flash and over 3 years with Illustrator, Camtasia and Cinema 4D. Educationally, I have a Bachelor's degree in philosophy from the University of North Florida with subsequently highly developed critical writing skills, able to help you with scripts, articles, copy, editing and much more. I am in the -5 GMT time zone but as I am willing to accommodate any time zone and schedule, my availability is very flexible and generous. Contract-wise, I enjoy doing various kinds of projects but I am also interested in developing long-term relationships in more specific contexts with individuals and organizations I resonate with. Please enjoy examples of my work in my oDesk portfolio, read client reviews, and feel free to contact me, even if you just have questions and want to explore possibilities. I look forward to the opportunity of creating with you! Jon

I've been working with words since I learned what words are. I love the way they let me deliver an urgent message, a funny anecdote, or essential information to the people who will want to know. I have published short stories, articles, reviews, and full-length books. My plays, screenplays, and audio plays have been produced and published. I am currently writing two choose-your-own-adventure games, a medium that lets the reader help build the story. As an editor, my job is to clear away the clutter of grammatical errors,awkward word choices, and other text issues so readers aren't disrupted and can move easily with the flow of your text. I have been associate editor of a publishing house, editor of two newspapers, and dramaturg of a collective of playwrights. I am an excellent proofreader and redactor. As a content provider I have written web content, marketing collateral, advertising (print, radio, and web), brochures, speeches, and incidental materials. In the software world I have been a part of, and have occasionally managed, technical documentation teams for several companies large and small. I have produced help documentation, knowledge-base articles, tutorials, and many kinds of internal document. Your text is important to you. Therefore it is very important to me. === I am also a trained voice talent and performer, and have recorded hundreds of hours of tutorials, audio books, advertisements, and other materials.

I am a wide range writer and a photographer as well. My ambition is something I will never give up on. By ambition, I consider a satisfaction with the done. Satisfaction is, in my world, writing and playing with words. That has always been my greatest passion. Not so much out of a wish that it will be liked by others but that it will be something that will be talked about. As most people think, this introduction is supposed to be ''serious'' enough for someone to decide to trust and believe you can do the job. If you ask me, it is something that should be intriguing enough for anyone to become interested to find out more. My vanity considers first few sentences to be enough. The rest is being written just because I am ''imaginative, creative, original'' and only with the hope that I have tickled your curiosity into being interested. To let the ''game'' begin there is only one word needed out of two possible. Yes or no.
