    Before I get to introduce myself, YOU HAVE AN ADVANTAGE IF YOU CHOOSE ME. I render free samples before hiring on the topic you want. Yes, You give me a topic and I write a one page sample on the topic you want so that you can see whether I am your best fit before you hire me. This is a FREE SAMPLE. The main reason why I am into Odesk is to learn a lot by exploring an array of topics. Ofcourse, I am honest at what I deliver and that's the main reason you find most of the feedback as 5 on 5. My positives are my high determination and perfection at work. More than half of my employers come back to me with their second jobs since they were impressed with my dedication, honesty, quality and adherence to deadline at the first job I worked with them. I have employers who pay me 100% in advance before I even started their second work. That is the trust I build.
