    Portugal - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 6

    Born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal, I'm currently studying Communication Sciences (I found my true love!) in Porto. I also have some background in Multimedia, given by a 3-years professional course. I'm interested in many types of jobs and I'll only apply to the ones that I feel I can do. My goal is to finish my tasks with the maximum quality within the minimum time possible I worked before in door-to-door telecommunication companies and at an hostel reception, a job that I loved because I could talk with many foreigners and see the cultural differences between almost every country in the world. Currently I work as a part-time writer for a Portuguese online music magazine. I love everything that involves writing and the creative process to write the best text/article possible. This is the reason I said I found my true love in Communication Sciences - because, honestly, this is the one thing that I feel I love to do and that I see myself doing forever. Trust me to help you and I'll make everything I can to make the best work possible.

    A Good CERTIFIED Contractor – every team needs one, and there’s none better than me.... When hiring a contractor on any marketplace like oDesk, it will be made as stress free as possible when you take on somebody with honesty, integrity, knowledge and expertise..... Somebody who is committed to achieving the best possible result for you. Above all, you need to deal with a person you can relate to and trust implicitly - which is why my focus is on creating a relationship of respect and trust with all my clients. 80% of my work is either repeat or referral..... it's not hard to see why....
