Raul Goncalves

Raul Goncalves

Psychologist, researcher and writer (Portuguese and English)

Brazil - Tests: 6

I am a creative and motivated professional, with excellent "people skills". As a MSc. student, I have worked in several research studies, some including international collaborators. One of the longest studies culminated in the development of a Learning Objects Repository, in which I learned to work along with programmers and designers, becoming able to understand and make changes to databases and to files that use html, php, javascript and other web languages. In the past, I owned my own printing store, creating fliers, folders, cards and other printed materials for companies and research groups, where I developed reasonable knowledge of MS Office, Open Office, Google Drive and other text and spreadsheet editing tools. For the last two years, I have worked as a clinical cognitive-behavioral psychotherapist in Brazil. Despite my light accent, I have excellent English skills, and absolute command over Brazilian Portuguese language. My mid-term goal is to start my own clinical practice. However, while I save up funds for such endeavor, I am offering my skills in the freelance market. I am looking for 30-50 hours/week jobs, and believe that my skills are suitable for a position as virtual assistant, remote sales agent and/or costumer support representative, but I would also welcome the opportunity to assist in researching, transcribing, writing and translating your content.

Katy Somerville


Australia - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 2

I am a caffeine fuelled 29 year old with a penchant for writing nonsense, singing loudly at every possible moment and making collages and other messes. Things I like: Writing, fashion, makeup, music, theatre, animals, drinking out of straws, talking in movie/television quotes when I’m nervous (or any time, really), reading, lipstick, llamas, going to the beach, road trips if there is a good soundtrack, colouring in, collecting random objects (keys, buttons, Peanuts comics), buying earrings and not wearing them. Things I do not like: Watching tennis, earwigs, strawberries, having to wear shoes, rude sales assistants, when people write could of, should of or would of, when people use my cups, when people spoil the end of a book/movie/television show, extended car chase scenes in movies, energy drinks that smell like medicine, eardrops. Things I have done: Been a vegetarian for 17 years, lived in approximately 21 houses, won a medal for writing a poem when I was 9, been married and separated, been a part of 45 amateur theatrical productions (on stage and off), got 4 tattoos (thus far), been to two Billy Joel concerts. I currently live in an oddly designed two-storey house with an actor/bartender, a science and maths teacher/outdoor camp activities guy, a graphic designer, a doctor, an art student, a green budgerigar and what I am sure are several possums in the walls/roof. Our house has an intercom system, a balcony with solar fairy lights, a shed full of power tools and a lot of bizarre lighting fixtures/wall and window décor. Writing and singing are my two great passions.

United States - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 5

Over the last 12 years, I have developed a varied skill set, which is applicable to a wide variety of competencies that I have had the pleasure of performing in both formal and informal settings. From leadership in small business to creative entrepreneurial endeavors to start-up consultation and more, I often find myself exploring new horizons, which keeps my brain active and engaged. My core competency is in creative writing, speaking and singing. I also have experience in the following areas: brainstorming, designing, testing, implementation and troubleshooting. I could also bore you with a long list of other skills that might seemingly have nothing to do with each other; however, I feel it would be more effective to say that these skills have contributed to my ability to flex into whatever prospect I am currently exploring. I strive to serve others instead of serving myself. Joshua Pattillo – Your happiness is my success!™
