    Senior Software Architect

    United States - Last active: 12/27/2014

    I'm a senior software architect (with a degree in computer engineering) with 10 years of commercial software design and development experience and over 20 years of experience troubleshooting and administering Windows, Linux, Mac, and FreeBSD machines. I have designed and developed dozens of successful small and medium commercial applications, consulted for startups that went on to get multi-million dollar acquisitions, led teams of more than a dozen individuals at a software development firm, founded my own software development company, designed custom operating system distributions, programmed microcontrollers and designed hardware for gizmos and gadgets, administered servers, designed databases, and much more. My experience in software development covers C, C++, C#, and PHP on Windows, Linux, Mac, and FreeBSD. I've developed entire backends for cloud applications, eCommerce platforms, desktop utilities and applications, firmware for embedded devices I've designed and developed myself, and more. I've administered Windows, FreeBSD, and Linux servers, and use Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, and Mac on a daily basis. I always have at least 4 or 5 virtual machines running at a time, and am very well-versed in both administering and developing for the cloud, mainly AWS (currently using EC2, S3, CloudFront, Route53) plus Azure. I've worked on ultra-high-performance libraries and pride myself in designing and developing fast, succinct, and highly-reliable code. I'm constantly approached to consult with regards to the best strategies to adopt when approaching an idea for a startup or application, and provide valuable feedback on perceived difficulties and vantages. I love to learn and challenge myself constantly to do so, love both technical and regular writing, and am always trying something new. I'm a native English speaker and express myself fluently. I take great pride in my work, and am an extreme perfectionist by nature. I regularly contribute to open source projects, and have a real passion for everything to do with computers and especially with software development. I'm on oDesk to find something new to challenge myself with and experience a wider range of technical challenges and to push myself to the limits.

I've been designing websites, graphics, spreadsheets and software for over 17 years, over 95% from scratch. My specialty is the area having to do with "Direct Response" methods of lead generation, having studied almost every Dan Kennedy book and dozens of self-study courses over the years. I eat, breathe, sleep and dream sales and marketing. You think like an entrepreneur, and so do I...because that's almost all I've known for over a decade. I've been self-employed in some form my entire adult life. Borderline-obsessive work ethic is just another day at the office. I've gone through Tim Ferriss' "4-Hour Work Week" almost a dozen times.

I made $2.50 in 15 minutes. My mom yelled at me and made me return the money. It was on this day that my disdain for authority was born...) - I own (and actually completed) more sales, marketing, real estate investing, and real estate agent training courses than I can count (over 100 at least) - I hired a professional sales and marketing coach for approximately two years while practicing real estate, and amassed a well-rounded business education along the way - Barely old enough to vote, I spent 3 years selling telecommunications service and building sales teams I've also spent more time than I can count on: - Writing custom email campaigns - Writing eBooks and Free Reports for website give-aways - Designing custom graphics, flyers, and advertisements - Designing website elements (logos, buttons, banner graphics, backgrounds, etc) - Copy writing / sales letters (long- and short-form) Long story short: I have a strong background in the many aspects of internet-based sales and marketing, I love sales and marketing, and I'm a stickler for details. Send me an interview request today and let's see how I can be an asset to your project! I'm very familiar with the following languages and tools (if your project requires them): - HTML / PHP / CSS - Javascript / jQuery / jQuery Mobile / AJAX - Adobe Photoshop / PSD-to-HTML - MySQL databases (and website integration) - Microsoft Excel (I've designed hundreds of custom spreadsheets and 3 complete software solutions for myself and clients) If you're looking for a developer or content writer with a strong background in the finer points of sales and marketing, one with an obsession over the details, one with a thorough understanding of what it takes to generate you more business and get you more email subscribers, send me an interview request today and let's see if we're a match.

    United States - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

    Hello! For 14 years I have been growing companies through effective and out-of-the-box marketing strategies. At first it was my own companies. Then friends sought me for advice and I'd get endless invitations to become their partners in existing and upcoming businesses. Before I knew, I had become a marketing consultant and was spending my days helping clients grow their businesses. I could talk about the IT company that I rebranded as technology consultants, and as results, their contracts increased 4 times in price. I could also talk about the tables and chairs company that, without spending a single dollar in advertising, got on the first page of Google, Bing, and Yahoo!, sold to government agencies, including the U.S. Navy, famous universities, and Fortune 500 companies. And I could tell you about other clients' success stories. But I'd prefer to talk about you and how to make yours a success story. --- / --- \ --- Services Description: CLIENT ACQUISITION AND RETENTION We help companies get new clients and keep the current ones. Most marketing agencies and professionals focus solely on helping their customers get new clients. They ignore that it is easier and more profitable to keep current clients satisfied than it is to get new clients. UNCOVERING YOUR REAL NEEDS We start by understanding the real needs and goals of clients and helping them getting there. The main challenge with marketing today is that there are too many choices available; it can be daunting deciding what the best strategy for your firm is. For example, people often think that they need one specific solution, say a beautiful new website. But that might not be what they really need. Chances are your site is fine, and instead of a total makeover you simply need a remodeling. Instead of simply selling you a website, we'd prefer to talk to you and understand your real goals and then create and implement a strategy to get you there. We work with firms of different sizes and budgets. We create beautiful and functional websites that clearly describe what you do, how you will defend/support your clients, and how they can contact you. Then we can get you on top of Google (but it takes time), and bring leads to your site (immediately) through online advertising (pay-per click or display ads). Also, we can increase your reputation online and help you communicate with prospective clients even before they need your services through effective social media marketing. And when you get prospects knocking on your door or calling you, we will teach you how to turn them into paying clients who will tell Here's a list of services that we provide: Branding Marketing Consulting Web Design and Development Sales Coaching Mobile Application Testing, UI/UX Website Conversion Optimization Marketing Planning Copywriting Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Graphic Design Video Production Printing Pay-Per-Click Advertisement campaign creation and management Social Media Management Web Hosting and Security Marketing Audits Branding
