I have a wide variety of multimedia skills from video and audio editing to logo design and photo editing. My primary focus is on front-end web design for small businesses. My platform of choice is WordPress due to it flexibility and popularity. I can build just about any style website with a custom WordPress theme. I tend to choose projects that I'm interested in. It's important to me to create things I'm proud of. I try to be clear in my communications and I try to work closely with my clients to create something that the feel fits them ... well. I am not the cheapest option on oDesk. There are people in the world willing to work for nearly free just to get a start. Their skill level often match I will never be the low bidder on a job. I just apply my going rate and work to create something my clients with be happy with. I do this for a living. I'm not a "rock star", "ninja" or "guru". I'm a designer. This is a jobs that requires experience, honesty, insight, skill and good communication to do properly. Some advise if you don't hire me.. There are good and bad ways to do things even if the result is the same. The two biggest mistakes I would warn anyone about is modifying a theme that will be updated (and wipe out the changes) and working on a live server. I code on my home workstation, demonstrate on my staging server.. then publish to the live server(your actual website) when everything is working properly! Don't let any developer work on your live site. You don't want your customers seeing a server error.
