I started my first premium shoe shine business at age 5 and have dabbled in business most of my life.

With these core skills, I can assist any founder in almost all needs a startup team has

    I am here at Upwork to find freelance tasks to help supplement my income working as a per diem Medical Assistant in a hospital, and hopefully transition to a full-time self-employed freelance expert. With that being said, I am also here to gain and enhance skills that will be helpful in my advancement. I am currently pursuing my Bachelor of Arts In Computer Science and hoping to graduate anytime between 2016 to 2017. Moreover, I am a certified medical assistant in the state of Washington and has a license for medical assisting with the Washington State Department of Health. I am currently working on my own website and looking forward to launch it next year (2016). My website will showcase the services that I will be offering such as web designing, brand building, entrepreneurship, and more. You might be wondering about the sudden change in career - from healthcare to web development. My true passion in life is to create and produce art. I love to tinker with codes and applaud myself for designs I creatively finish. I am more of a self-studious person who believes in education that is fully-integrated with my own schedule & liking.

I hold work experience in marketing, writing/journalism, accounting, video production, graphics/web design, office administration, and business management. **MARKETING CONSULTANT** I founded Initiated Marketing as an online marketing, public relations, and image consulting firm that has been outsourced by corporate marketing departments and publicists worldwide. Also the winner of the 2012 Business Excellence Award for Most Innovative Company in Marketing and Advertising. I changed fields to public relations and political strategy. The most notable success was as manager of the 2008 'Israel for Obama Campaign'. Afterward I became a strategic marketing consultant to celebrities for this award-winning online firm I founded. Over the years have had the privilege to work with companies and political organizations like Kidzui and the Tea Party Express. While working here I've also written several articles and press releases with Rolling Stone Brazil, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Yisrael Today News and others. This includes interviews with several celebrities such as the stars of A&E reality TV show 'Flip This House', Julian Lennon, Mark Ballas, and more. "Yeshiyah achieved great results with a slim budget for a non-profit organization client of mine. He proved to be very pro-active and thought out of the box, coming up with creative solutions to their PR needs. The result was international media coverage of their recently released CD album with big-name artists working together to raise funds for the charity. I would highly recommend Yeshiyah and his team to others seeking PR work." -Dylan Robertson **CLERK & OFFICE ASSISTANT** I've worked in office environments on a number of jobs and for a variety of purposes before. - In Israel, I worked as a financial clerk for the Tel Arad National Park and held duties including collecting daily entrance fees, keeping financial records, filling out accounting records with the Manager. - I worked for Da'Real Distributions in Beth-Shemesh where my job included communicating with clients oversea & record companies in Israel.

I'm dedicated to creating high quality video productions for interesting clients and "turning their dreams into reality". And in 2002, I and Watchmen Productions (which is in association with Amariel Family Entertainment) put together a film entitled "Search for Zion". It was aired in July of 2003 in the Midwest on Can TV Chicago. By 2007, my skills advanced to blend live action with 3D animated video editing for a non profit organization in Florida. For my works in visual productions over the years I have professional recommendations (can provide them on request) from other graphic artists including "Michael Netzer", formerly of Marvel Comics and DC comics. **WEB DESIGN ** I've been web design for 9 years with the Tabernacle Congregation of Prayer organization and other less consistent clients.
