Service Description

I am a free-lancing writer and artist, operating from home. I enjoy creating things, whether through art, music, or writing. Whatever I do, I give it my best.

I am a college graduate, familiar with both PC and Mac, and I currently use a Mac OS X with Adobe software such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Fireworks, and Flash.

I am very creative and imaginative, with a good eye for art and a strong sense of story. I am good at digital art, writing, and video editing. My goals are to get involved in the video game industry, work with visual effects, and one day get a job with a company like Pixar!

I am very attentive to detail and serious about my work, but I also love what I do. And I won't give up until it is the best it can be!
