My professional brand is: ”I am an award-winning cultural journalist writing stories about people, their passions, and their magnificent obsessions.” If you are looking for top-notch writing help with articles, newsletters, press releases, company or family histories, biographies, historical narratives, scripts, and other writing products, then I offer my gallery of work as proof that I can deliver the goods. My publication writing is for newspapers and magazines, most of them based in Omaha, although I have written for out state and state-wide publications as well as for a few national publications. Many of Omaha’s leading publications, corporations, and organizations have hired me to execute writing projects: Omaha World-Herald Creighton University University of Nebraska Medical Center Valmont Industries (through David Day & Associates) University of Nebraska at Omaha Nebraska Jewish Historical Society Omaha Public Power District Woodmen of the World Life Insurance Company Opera Omaha My rates are competitive. Depending on the assignment or commission, I charge a per project or per hour fee. If you haven’t already, visit the About Me page. Find more useful information at my LinkedIn page- www.linkedin.com/in/leoadambiga You can contact me at: 402-445-4666 leo32158@cox.net The following resume provides a fair overview of my writing career: LEO ADAM BIGA’S RESUME Leo Adam Biga • 10629 Cuming St., Omaha, NE 68114 (402) 445-4666 • leo32158@cox.net Goals: • I look to apply my superior writing expertise to publications, organizations, institutions that value the written word and strive to be market leaders and community anchors. Capabilities: • I bring to the keyboard extensive experience as a working journalist, with more than a thousand published articles, on a wide array of subject matter, to my credit. If I am best known for anything it is for the cultural writing/reporting I do. I have written for both general interest and niche magazines/newspapers based in Omaha and in surrounding markets. I have also had work published in some national publications. I exemplify the strong work ethic for which Midwesterners are famous. The breadth and volume of my work, plus the longstanding relationships I have enjoyed with clients, speak to my being highly reliable and adaptable. • In addition to straight journalism, I also write public relations/marketing copy. Whatever the assignment, no matter its subject or length or intended audience, I take a serious, considered approach.

Testimonials: “I’ve long admired Leo Biga’s journalism and prose portraiture for its honesty, thoughtfulness, and accuracy. On a personal note, throughout many years of being interviewed, I find Mr. Biga’s articles about me to be the most complete and perceptive of any journalist’s anywhere. They ring true to me — even in critique — in a way that reveals the depth of his talent in observation, understanding, and expression.” Alexander Payne, filmmaker (Citizen Ruth, Election, About Schmidt, Sideways) “Leo Adam Biga portrays his subjects with both precision and generosity, practicing a literary journalism that is enlightening, honest, and immensely readable. His writing is eloquent and provocative, and quite often moving.” Timothy Schaffert, novelist (Phantom Limbs of the Rollow Sisters) “Leo Adam Biga is an astute, conscientious journalist whose interviews and articles have been widely admired for their accuracy, generosity, depth, and perceptiveness. I would position him among the finest of our national reporters on the arts and culture.” Ron Hansen, novelist (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) “Leo Biga personifies one of H.L. Mencken’s more memorable observations: ‘There are no dull subjects. There are only dull writers.’ Biga consistently teaches and delights, not with showy vocabulary or flashy syntax, but by placing his prodigious talents in the service of his subject and his readers.” Richard Dooling, author (White Man’s Grave and Brain Storm) “Leo is one of the best prepared and most thorough writers I’ve ever worked with. With painstaking detail he builds well-crafted, well-researched stories that are a pleasure to read. Leo is truly one of the finest wordsmiths around.” John Heaston, Publisher, The Reader, 2312 M St., Omaha, NE 68105 “Leo is a talented writer who handles each assignment with passion, style, and a commitment to quality.” Jeff Reinhardt, Editor, New Horizons, 4223 Center St., Omaha, NE 68105 “Leo is one of those inquisitive writers who knows just what probing questions to ask in order to get a fascinating story. He provides the Jewish Press with a behind-the-scenes look at people doing extraordinary things in their lives.” Carol Katzman, Former Editor, Jewish Press, 333 So. 132nd St., Omaha, NE 68154

My name is Nate Flanigan. I am a full-time PVCC student majoring in Fine Arts. I look forward to diving into multiple facets of art to take it to the next level. I would like to welcome you to the inner workings of what I like to refer to as my mind/body connection.Through my heart, mind, and soul I describe life and the meaning in an abstract point of view. Along this journey my passion brings me to re-discover who I am, all while enticing the imagination of all who view my work. To offer insight into the inner-working of my creative process; would best be described in an aesthetic/epistemological type of a vision. In order to understand my passion behind the vision, you must take the true nature behind the complex biological devices we as humans come so spoiled with and misuse; the eyes. As we all are limited to which parts of the light spectrum we accompany reality with, so do all other mammals and life forms. My vision blurs the line between spirituality and actuality. I encourage my viewers to take a seat and induce a dream-like state of observation and let our shared imagination bring forth a hallucination of the senses and let the common become more than common. A vivid delusion of reality is only a matter of opinion and where you decide to view it from.
