Overview

Creative writer, editor, content writer, poet, artist. Fast turn-around.

I grew up scribbling my prose on walls, bathroom stalls, and school room desks. The public forum took my imagination hostage at a tender age and instilled the exhilarating spark between creator and spectator in my heart. I am an award-winning artist and published poet* working in the fine and ancient trade of tattooing. I hold a B.F.A. in studio art and creative writing and enjoy collaborative, solo, and commissioned work for both writing and art projects. Every job...

Service Description

I am willing to take on any job in my fields of expertise with passion and diligence, and if requested, I will gladly research any topic relevant to the project at hand to get the job done quickly and correctly the first time.

So what sets me apart?

My day-to-day work as a Tattooist puts me in direct and intimate contact with people from all walks of life. This has greatly expanded my understanding of the intricacies surrounding the various social, economic, and psychological elements of society at large. I attribute my fresh voice to my unique life experiences in and out of academia as well as my proficiency in the great expression of poetry. I write daily, and the use of strong imagery spills from my artwork to my prose and back again resulting in interesting, versatile, and fresh content. I believe I would be an asset to anyone seeking a creative individual!

Areas of expertise:

Web content and blog writing with basic SEO knowledge, editing, speech writing, resume writing, academic writing, web research, letter writing, poetry, art (photography and photo editing, video editing, painting, drawing, design layout), Windows OS, word processing, Mac OSX, art gallery management, museum grade art installation, the service industry, technical support, customer service, the tattoo and body modification industry, childcare/parenting, literature, popular culture, music review, and censorship issues.
