Andrew McCormick

Game Designer and Project Manager

Turkey - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 12

I'm a creative problem solver with a strong vision, and I excel at communicating my ideas. I have designed various games for Facebook and mobile devices: puzzle, arcade, educational, gambling, farming, etc. I am experienced with monetization, virality, retention, and community engagement. Being a certified graphic designer, I use those skills to clearly explain game concepts and features through visual aids such as screen mockups, diagrams, and flow charts. This allows me to inspire artists and to provide unambiguous specifications to developers. It also allows me to present complex design possibilities to management in a concise, actionable format. As a Project Manager, I use Agile/Scrum methodologies to manage workflow and track tasks. I support an iterative workflow that puts features into the game quickly and allows for employees to develop as professionals. Games are my passion, and I'd love to help you turn your vision into reality.

Ashley P.

Professional Writer and Editor, degree in English and Creative Writing

United States - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 2

I graduated in 2010 with a BA in English and Creative Writing. In the years since graduating from college I have held positions as an Editor in Chief, Administrative Assistant, Social Media Manager, Lead Content Creator, and various other positions which involved a great deal of professional writing. I believe my writing ability is what sets me apart from other freelancers on the site. I am also adept at administrative tasks such as data entry, creating schedules, communicating with clients, and other organizational duties. Some of my skills include typing a clean 90 WPM, basic HTML knowledge, a strong proficiency in all Word software, professional editing, writing, administrative tasks, and having 11 years of professional experience in these fields. As you can also see from my tests, I placed 1st out of 600k+ test takers on the US Spelling Test. Aside from the professional description above I am absolutely in love with writing and words. I've always been told I have a knack for writing the perfect description that people never knew they wanted. Since I was young I devoured books like The Hobbit and a lot of children's books. I decided after college I wanted to devote myself to actually doing what I went to college for. And living in a small town doesn't lend well for writing outside of your home. So I decided the best step to take was to become a freelancer and help people all over the world with their writing needs. I've written everything from stories about video games to a memorial for a loved one. I hope by reading this you can see just how much I love to write. If you're looking for someone who is truly passionate about reading, writing, and language in general, I hope you contact me and let me assist you with the perfect phrase. - Ashley

I have been with the Business Process Outsourcing sector since 2004. I was part of several customer service and technical support campaigns including a US-based pioneer in computer products and services and later on, a leading Internet Service Provider. I literally rose from the ranks as I had started as a Frontline Technical Support Engineer then to a Resolutions Specialist (floor walker), Frontline Operations Team Leader, Escalations Team Leader and then last but not the least as a Senior Team Leader/Operations Manager. I am well versed in the English language and a workhorse in terms of customer satisfaction, leadership and discipline. I am also self-reliant, very keen to details, a great team player and can easily find ways to motivate myself and my co-workers. Academically speaking, I was a graduate of the University of Santo Tomas in the Philippines with a degree of Bachelor of Science in Electronics and Communications Engineering. I took my oath as a full-pledged Engineer the succeeding year after my graduation and had my first hand experiences in regards to project management right after.
