Structural engineer for AutoCAD

United Kingdom - Portfolio: 71

STRUCTURAL ENGINEER for technical drawing, modelling or structural analysis My main goal is to help with my AutoCAD and ArchiCAD which softwares I use in a daily basis since 2009. I'm also here to use my knowledge in steel, timber and reinforced concrete structural design for projects which require such skills. I uploaded some of my design plans in my profile what I made in the past. What you can see there is mostly in Hungarian but the titles explain the plans. I also worked using imperial using so any clients from Canad or the USA can hire me without concern. I'm flexible in working hours and if an urgent job comes in I won't stop working after 8 hours if the client needs the plans soon.

Copywriting Extraordinaire, E-Mail Marketing Expert

United Kingdom - Portfolio: 3

If you're looking for sales letters that bring in the big bucks, email campaigns that hit home runs, or web copy that not only stands out but also packs a massive punch, you’re in the right place. Hi, my name is Trish and I’ve been successfully writing for the online web for close to a decade now. I’ve worked for a wide variety of online markets; from internet marketing, to horse riding, to real estate all the way to tailgating……and everything in between. I’ve gained enough experience and been around the block enough times to figure out how to blend engaging content with the element of sales and do 'Stealth Selling'. I don’t write the usual, cookie-cutter, 'put you to sleep type content'. I write with a style that is unique, has a distinct voice and is drilled with personality so that it not only stands out on the web but also bonds with the reader. I mean, content is freakin’ everywhere. I've seen what works online and can make it work for you. Trish
