I am 25, married, and based out of Kaneohe, Hawaii. After I graduated from the University of Hawaii in 2011, I moved to Washington, DC where I began working for an online education startup, Saylor.org. I gained a ton of experience there as I worked in all aspects of the small foundation: administrative/office duties, content development, as well as business development. I loved my two and half years there, but wanted to experience living abroad for a while. My goal is create work opportunities for myself that aren't tied down to a physical location. A location independent career is my ultimate goal. Whether that's something I find on oDesk or not, it is something I will pursue until it becomes a reality. I am a very hard-working and dedicated person. I don't feel like any job is below me as I've seen first hand how important every facet of an organization is in order for it to run smoothly. I have a breadth of experience in creative and technical writing, online research, copyediting, and content development. I take great pride in everything I do, whether big or small. I want people to feel confident that when they assign something to me, they know they will get in back quickly and exactly to their specifications -- and I think I have done that throughout my working life. Here is snippet of a letter of recommendation my former boss at Saylor.org (now CIO at Moneythink in Chicago) wrote for me: "David on many occasions took on additional work without being asked in order to make my life easier and improve the overall process for our faculty. He would do this without fanfare or the desire or need for acknowledgment. This thoughtfulness and commitment to his work and to our organization bowled me over. When the opportunity for promotion into a different role within the organization emerged, I sadly but willingly recommended him for the role, knowing he was capable of nearly anything but of course disappointed that I would be losing him in my department. I can frankly say that no one was able to fill his shoes in the position!" Loyalty and seeing things through are also very important to me. During my last few months at Saylor.org, I was working on a joint course project with NASA. This project had been my baby for the past six months and although my wife and I were eager to start our life abroad together, I needed to see my project through to the end. From the first meeting to the last, I was the project lead and managed a team of instructional designers, subject matter experts, and AV specialists to create a course that had nearly 10,000 students enrolled. I also have experience working remotely, so I know how to manage my time appropriately and stay on task outside the traditional office environment. Since June 2014, I have been freelance writing for clients mainly found on oDesk. I write primarily on travel, education, personal finance, and health. I have never had a client who was unsatisfied with my work and continually receive praise not only for the content I produce, but for the timely manner in which I get it in, the responsiveness I display, and the general ease of working with me. These are all qualities I pride myself on and always want to be known for. If you choose me for your project, I can guarantee you will be satisfied with the results. I will commit myself to the work and will always see the project through to completion. Should there be additional work available after the initial project, I would love the opportunity to work on that as well. If you would like me to complete a small test project first, I would be more than happy to do that as well.
