    Web Developer and Systems Architect

    United States - Last active: 05/31/2014 - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 1

    Programming has always been a calling for me, so it makes sense to do it for a living. However, I've got a number of other callings including music, photography, engineering, biking, baking and travel, so I don't want to put myself on a corporate career path that forces me into 1-week-off-per-year jobs. I've tried that and - luckily - escaped, hopefully never to return to Corporate America to discuss Facebook tactics with the Marketing Exec on a lunch meeting. My objective is to do what I love: to create and maintain beautiful solutions for small businesses and real people - to create logic from the chaos of life.

    So yeah, a little about me. I'm 26yo from Slovenia. I just finished my study (masters) with the official title Organization And Management Of Information Systems. I was creating webpages since I was like 12 years old (Notepad, FrontPage, Dreamweaver and what not), then I got into hacking with PHP and working first at SmartCom building internal applications for about a year and a half and then with the biggest Slovenian web agency Innovatif for about 2 years. Next I got into freelancing where I did a Mac app with Objective-C and many Ruby/Rails web apps. For the last 2 years I'm almost exclusively a Ruby developer. I'm also the organizer of Slovenia Ruby User Group. If you want to know more, please don't hesitate to contact me.

    Machine Learning Specialist

    United States - Last active: 01/19/2014 - Tests: 4

    I worked as an artificial intelligence specialist at Pearson for several months after my freshman year of college. I have created novel approaches to a number of natural language processing challenges, and have soundly beat the Stanford NLP project on a number of standard benchmarks. I was scouted by Basis technologies during my sophomore year for work alongside PhDs in the field of Digital Forensics, and Natural Language Processing. I released the first and only open-source sentiment analysis library with near state-of-the-art benchmarks. I have pioneered a number of novel approaches in the fields of predictive analytics and big data analysis, regularly acting as a consultant for the Harvard Innovation Lab. I am currently working with one of the original developers of SolidWorks to create an adaptive gesture recognition platform interfacing with the Leap Motion. I'm fairly new to oDesk, and though I've used it regularly as a project manager, I've not yet signed up as a contractor. Looking for part-time work to discover cool new problems. I am extremely comfortable implementing support vector machines, genetic algorithms, neural nets, latent semantic indexing, pachinko allocation, and a wide variety of other machine learning algorithms, both supervised and unsupervised in Java, Python, C, Ruby, and Javascript.
