My main fields of expertise are Medical and Technical texts, with extensive experience in IT/Electronics and Business, and of course, general texts. Whether working in a team or by myself, I strive to make the best possible use of my strong points.

I am familiar with MS Office tools, and I type approximately 50 wpm. My work experiences are varied and in several of my previous jobs I have had managerial responsibilities. As such I am used to being a self-starter and getting things done.
http://www.bazdeas.com I'm a UX / UI designer with a serious hankering for creating handsome interfaces—be it web or mobile. I believe in absolute focus, which means that I put all my energy into designing. I don't code. I do know how to code, but I prefer not to because I don't get the kind of joy and thrill from it that I do from designing. I prefer to let a dedicated coder handle that. Also, I only work on one project at a time, so that I can put all my energy and passion into it.

Over the last 13 years, I have been working primarily on product design and development of consumer products. When I say " I have been working..", I am directly involved on every process of the product development as follows : 1. Concept generation / Brain storming 2. Engineering design 3. Rapid prototyping (CNC, SLA, SLS, FDM, objet), prototype assembly and prototype evaluation 4. Design adjustments (if needed) based on the prototype 5. Mold meeting / Mold design approval 6. First article inspection 7. Parts approval during injection / Parts approval for non-injected parts 8. Mass production supervision I am also familiar with different manufacturing processes like metal stamping, ultrasonic welding, blow molding, compression molding and extrusion (both metal and plastic). With all the knowledge and exposures that I have acquired, I would say that I am not contractor by the "drawing board" only but a contractor who can deliver any consumer product to the market.
