Service Description

Whilst I have no formal degree I do have plenty of professional, business experience and on-the-job training; firstly in the Information Technology sector and later in Telecommunications. I am PRINCE2 Practitioner certified (project management).

I am proficient in the following:
- Web development on various platforms (html, WordPress, Blogger, ASP, Joomla) including hosting management and setup
- Google Adwords and various SEO practices
- Database design and administration (sql, myPHP)
- UNIX administration and installation
- Cisco and Juniper routing
- Technical writing and system design
- Project management

I am experienced in business, technical and report writing. I work as a ghost-writer on several blogs and websites on subjects ranging from relocation to child-birth. I also keep my own active blog about my life and experiences in Dubai.

I have a keen eye, pay great attention to detail and am super organised and efficient.

I would be happy to assist you with your project no matter how small it may be, in a professional and competent manner.
