I'm known for my fast turnaround time and ability to fix difficult problems that other freelancers have failed to solve. As I always say, hire me when everyone else fails, and I'll not leave you disappointed! My expertise is solving difficult problems and making things happen in the following areas: Linux system administration, website/server migration, malware cleaning, various CMS and eCommerce solutions, and more. In 2012, I was selected as the first-ever Featured Freelancer by Freelancer.com. As of 2015, I'm a part of Preferred Freelancer program, the group of elite of the elite freelancers as they say. My timezone is GMT +6, though I work round-the-clock to cater the needs of my clients in over 60 countries worldwide.
