Hi Everyone!  I work in the Accounting/Finance area and I'm located in Los Angeles, CA.

 

I'm hoping to learn the strategy for successfully getting projects.

 

My Dad inspires me the most.  He turns 92 this year and he is still very active, still drives, and has all his faculties.

Hi there, Upwork community.


With more than ten years of graphic and five years plus motion design experience, I am a senior motion designer. For the past seven-plus years, we have been heading a small but talented team at an animation studio, with a focus on 3D motion design, product visualization, and state-of-the-art motion graphics.

I'm starting a new chapter and reaching out to a wider audience on Upwork with my skills. Please feel free to share your advice and criticism as well if you can be kind enough to visit my profile too. 

Regards,

Sayed Kaysar

Hello Everyone, I just started my Upwork journey and I'm thrilled to be a part of this community.

 

I am a Data Science and Machine Learning Engineer from Pakistan, and I am almost done with my Computer Science bachelor's degree.

 

I just got my first client, and I'm excited to share that AH I successfully executed his NSGA2 Algorithm for multiobjective optimization. I aim to learn and grow in the field of AI and Machine Learning, as this field is not just a buzz word, instead, it's actually quite revolutionary.

 

I'm looking forward to connecting with more clients, so together we can achieve various accomplishments.

Hi! I am a writer. I enjoy writing because I can express my thoughts genuinely. It is , in fact, my comfort zone. I am located in the Philippines. 

I am hoping to learn more about writing and how does this platform works. My inspiration is my family. It's cliche, I know, but it really is my family. I am the eldest so I actually have a lot of responsibilities and that inspired me to work harder.

Hi everyone,

 

Another newbie here, well I should say, new to offering my services online as opposed to through traditional recruitment agencies.

 

Okay, so with the answers to your questions Andrea;

 

Location is an easy one, I've been living in wnderful New Zealand for just over welve years now but I am originally from Nottingham in the UK. As to my field of work, I've done/tried pretty much everything over the years however I would say that my main experience would be in Software Testing, Training Provider (course creation and delivery), Graphic Design (comes in handy for course creation).

 

What am I hoping to learn from others in the community, well I suppose it would be the best way to navigate around Upwork, not so much the website/application but more the processes involved in applying/bidding for work as that side is very new to me.

 

Finally, who (what)  inspires me, that's an easy one my wonderful and beautiful Wife of twenty years. She has stood by me through all the up's and down's that life throws at you. She accepts (well she say's she does) lots of my starnge and sometimes wierd suggestion, usually in the job/business front, but also my crazy artwork ideas.

 

Well I think that about covers the questions, no doubt they'll be plenty of opportunites to give you guys more insights into who I am and what I do, outside of work, but I'll give you a little teaser. We run an animal sanctuary here in New Zealand and amoungst our rescued family members (as we call them) we have Eleven goats, Two pigs, Twenty chooks & Twenty cats.

 

Okay, I'll say Ta' ra for now, take it easy everyone.

 

Cheers

Paul

 

Pretty detailed Paul, Good Luck in the virtual workplace.

Hi I'm Nik, and I am from the beautiful state of Montana! I am studying to become a copywriter, and have finished a course with AWAI on writing email copy. 

I am hoping to learn more about attracting and interacting with clients. While the AWAI courses have done well with training us to write, and even going over our examples, I feel that this is something that was lacking and I could use help with.

Seeing the success of other AWAI students inspires me, but deep down its looking at where I am currently in life that inspires and motivates me to be be and do better.

Wow, What a wonderful place to live.

I bet i could also hire you for some fantastic nature footage for a video project too!

Good Luck
