Over the past 10 years I've taken on a plethora of artistic projects, gradually developing an arsenal of tricks and skills which define my current day areas of expertise. I've spearheaded everything from ceiling murals, grant proposal development and children's book illustration, to academic research, novel writing, editing and proofreading and character design. Today I'm moonlighting as a resume and cover letter writer and learning the ins and outs of copywriting and SEO content writing. My experience spans across the design spectrum from business, academic and advertising to illustration, fiction and character development. My notable accomplishments of late include 20+ illustrations for a children's book, meticulous proofreading of several choose your own adventure novels, content writing for a mental health care marketing company and canvas shoe painting for TOMS: Style Your Sole Events. I am a creative Jack of All Trades and continuously searching for new and challenging projects.

Most recently, I've launched a blog for my resume and writing services:

In Fall of 2011 I conceptualized, drew and painted the illustrations for book called Sparky, written by a talented new children's book author, M.D. Hicken. Selections from that project are featured in my portfolio.

Sparky is available for purchase on amazon.com!
