They have the ability to soothe, hypnotize, agitate, or energize. They are a weapon to be used with care and precision, requiring mastery of both pace and tone. Because of my experiences in the film industry, both with screenwriting and physical production, as well as having nearly 8 years of experience in the field of copywriting, I have become accustomed to free flowing creative interaction, and concise and efficient communication. I have also come to appreciate the necessity for candor, criticism, and honesty when deadlines and budgets simply cannot be compromised. Because businesses and sales are moving more and more away from handshaking and into satellite negotiations, companies, perhaps more than ever, need writers who can make connections, evoke emotion, and incite action through the power of the written word. People see too much "advertising," and will not give you long to excite them, which is why good copywriters are direct, persuasive and efficient. The copywriter is the gateway to your potential customers. But today's copywriter must be more than that. They must be part psychologist, part public relations. They have to be able to translate complex thoughts and business jargon into relatable text any layman can grasp. They need to be teachers, and sellers, and friends to your client base. These necessary elements that a copywriter must possess are my strengths. I spent nearly 15 years in the film industry, which taught me politics and persuasion. I'm a trained life coach, which means I know how to read and inspire people. I have contracted and currently contract for companies like Warner Bros., Knot Standard, Cheap Caribbean, American Express, IHG, Travel + Leisure, MapQuest, Ariba and SAP, which means I'm very experienced in high-level marketing and ad copy. I was a full time screenwriter for more than ten years, which means I know how to produce dynamic elements with pace, rhythm and punch. I have written for film, television commercials/one hour dramas, and sitcoms. I have penned one sheets, taglines, synopses, pitches, professional bios, web content, proposals, press releases, SEO laden content, Meta Descriptions and Title Tags, marketing letters, business proposals, radio spots, game reviews, film reviews, :30 second television ads, and feature articles. I have been published many times online and in print and recently did some freelance work for Groupon. I believe I can offer you an excellent resource for fresh new material given the opportunity to do so. If you have a dropbox account, I have an online digital portfolio that is quite hefty. Please let me know and I’ll send you an invite, or be happy to mail you a hard copy of my portfolio at your request. I also have an extensive portfolio and resume on oDesk. I thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Christopher Kusiak CLK Industries

    PHP/MySQL Developer,Javascript,Web Designer,Client and Server Side exp

    United States - Last active: 07/29/2014 - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 20

    I started programming computers when I was eight years old, and, over the last 30 years, I've realized that I am, well, a programmer. That said, I do have the "people skills" necessary to remain competitive in the world of programming. When needed, I'm a "sit in the corner and program til the wee hours of the morning geek"... otherwise, I'm just a "fun to talk to, easy to get along with normal person". I have always enjoyed the challenge of creating interactive software. With the birth of the modern Internet, I found a new love in web development and web programming. I face every new piece of code as a fresh new beginning... a chance to do it even better, while, still using "what works" from the past. My objective, here at oDesk, it to provide potential employers with my expertise in the field of website design, development, and programming. My skill include, in no particular order: PHP MySQL HTML/HTML5 CSS/CSS3 JavaScript jQuery AJAX Big Data Laravel WordPress Magento CodeIgniter Zend Python PhpDocumenter (PHPDOC) XMPP, OpenFire Google Places API Angular.js Revive Adserver OpenX Adserver OpenX REST API Revive XMLRPC API BitBucket Web Scraping C# ASP.NET Classic ASP MSSQL Twitter API Facebook API Google API Google Maps API Google AdSense API Backbone.js Smarty MS Access Linux Apache nginx PHP Data Objects (PHP: PDO) MailChimp, MailChimp API Google GeoCode API MongoDB LAMP LEMP Ember.js IIS Photoshop Flash ActionScript Intuit Quickbooks API Mint API Twitter Bootstrap cPanel Plesk Authorize.net Stripe PayPal Google Checkout BASIC RackSpace API (OpenStack, OpenCloud, etc.) SalesForce / SalesForce API TinyMCE Yoast SEO MailGun / MailGun API JIRA Confluence

    Mechanical Design Engineer

    Philippines - Last active: 08/07/2014 - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 6

    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.
