The One Up Guy

United States - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 5

I've been working in content production since I was a child. Web design, digital audio production, image/video editing, and more. If it involves a computer I can probably take care of the details for you. My strengths are in high quality product fulfillment and resolving existing problems. My weaknesses are early stage design on my end only, like drafting mock ups - I usually end up making something nearly finished, and original art (I never was good at hand drawing). I'm better at editing, touching up, converting to digital, layout, etc. I also work in internet marketing and business development, and when working on design projects keep these in mind when drafting interfaces I'm now regularly active on Upwork. I'm looking for odd jobs for extra income since I can't do as much physical work on the side due to recently breaking a couple ribs. I'm interested mostly in weekend work such as fixing up existing interfaces, Raster/Vector editing, Audio Mixing & Editing, and less than three month site design/development tasks. For general computer odd jobs (for example a simple data entry assignment), my rate is negotiable. My rates assume I'm taking on web design or skilled editing work. Thank you for taking a look at my profile, if you are interested in working with me please send an invitation.
