Born in a competitive environment where a pause was an error and an error was a catastrophe I quickly learned that desires had to be gained too. A programming and IT industry background gave me an analytical thinking that, coupled with a natural cool blood and patience, makes me able to solve the most complex issues and obtain the best results even complex tasks with pressing deadlines. Well before the legal age I had to take the reins of a family business, giving it a x3 income boost in less than two years, while my home country faced one of the worst crises in the recent economical and political history. That was only the sparkle that started it all; I've already two successful start-up under my belt (from initial business plan to deploying) and the chance of new challenges makes my mind rev faster. I'm an "hands on" approach lover and if I choose to undertake a project I always succeed and exceed expectations. When I wished to learn about web and social media marketing I ended up writing a book aimed at new start-up and entrepreneurs. I'm a great buyer, I love it; give me an internet connection and an Excel spreadsheet and you'll have the best buy at the lowest possible price. When I find a good offer, then I'll make it a bargain. I've experience in leading and coaching small to big sized teams (50 people) through complex tasks and tight deadlines. As an added bonus I'm passionate in everything is complex and, thanks to a continuous learning process, my knowledge cover a vast amount of different topics.

STOP. If you're reading this, you've probably already gone through dozens of oDesk profiles looking for the right person who can turn your product around. It might be cliche to say this, but yes, I'm the person you're looking for. As the best UI & UX designers on oDesk (Top 1% rated on oDesk since 2012 with 2000+ hours worked), I constantly strive to understand how users react to certain elements and improve conversions. I consider good UX to be more than just pretty pixels. It's about user flow - being able to lead your customers step by step through each section of your site with minimal distraction. It's about making your users do what YOU want them to do, rather than helplessly hoping that they'll use the site the way you envision it. UI is like the makeup that goes on after - it's sole purpose is to attract and seduce customers to your site. This is exactly the reason why you would never see a model without makeup (Trust me, it's not a pretty sight). Without UI, you don't have a completed product. If you're looking for logo design, graphics design, photo editing, you're definitely looking at the wrong person. I focus on UI, UX and branding because that's what I'm GREAT at. Hiring me for something else is a waste of time for both you and I. I also don't negotiate rates (as seen by my previous billing history). I charge what I charge because I'm better than all the profiles you've already seen and having me on your project will save hundreds of hours in the long run by having your project completed correctly the first time around. For those looking for me to code the HTML/CSS/JS front end of your design to make it fully responsive and cross-browser compatible, I can do so at $120/hr. Still interested? Let's chat and talk about how my world-class branding services can help your business make a difference.

Every successful business begins with one person and a vision. Inevitably, that vision must segue to a strategic plan and focused execution. This is a space I've successfully lived in for over 20 years. My strengths lie in visionary business planning and strategy. I can take role as an advisor, collaborator, and/or team member to execute plans or strategic initiatives. I develop Business Plans, Strategic Plans, Operational plans, create financials, and help recruit top management. I help clients positively deliver results to their bottom line, take them from "marginal to viable", and often I help position them for a high(er) probability of an 'exit' when the time is right. I help deliver organized, business-focused narratives and messaging that inform internally and to external stakeholders, vendors, clients or investors. Whether a start up, early stage, or middle market, I approach every engagement in the same manner. I first establish an understanding of the business as it exists today. I review the current business structure. I peel back the layers to clearly assess the business, financials, market dynamics, team, and strategy. I look at the business in its current iteration and then sit down with you to discuss both the 'big picture' and what the goal line looks like to you. Early on, we may well reach a point where I share less-than-good news; There's still work to be done. But it is at this point where I see clients reach a level of cognitive realization, who understand and agree with my position or feedback, and that's where things can start to get exciting. Engage me on an initial consultation (no fee) regarding your business goals and strategy. The outcome of that dialogue will tell us both if there's a fit and whether it makes sense to engage in a mutually beneficial relationship to advance your goals. Michael
