    (Overview) "Man of all work" that is what sometimes my clients label me, I can assure you that I have a mastery in two skills: Content Writing and Graphic Designing (I have bits of knowledge related to Software Development as well). (The Writer Within me) A topic is just what I need to brainstorm what I should be writing about it, it can be anything because I usually read a lot. Researching is my hobby, when I have no work or no University assignments, I spend my time researching things on my own. Someone told me I have a very good taste in writing, although I myself think I can improve much more, especially if I get hired here, it would be a very good experience. I work on several pages and with my friend on his Blog ( I think I have excellent writing skills, so if there is something I can do for (Some topics I have researched on and I can write comfortably) (Priorities top to bottom) - Science - Programming - Blog Writing (SEO) - Sports (Football/Soccer, Cricket) - Non- Fiction - Architecture - Animals - Mathematics - Literature and a little more regarding or related to my own interests." (Programming) I'm a Student of Software Engineering and I've been working on Java and C up till now, my recent studies are mostly related to what the University schedule holds, but I myself like to study more and gain extra knowledge about things. One of my interest is also related to Web Development. (Graphic Designing) I've already designed logos, flyers and advertisements for many companies and I can design them for you too, I've always had positive reviews on my designing. (Project Management) My personal interest is Project Management, to be honest, I want to continue my life aim as becoming a Software Project Manager and I'm pretty good at it. If you have some work related to this, feel free to ask. (Why oDesk) This must be an experience what I always wanted, I have done content writing for different websites, but a place where I can find different people looking for Freelancers is a paradise for people like me. Looking forward in working with you.
