I have been writing stories and poetry since the age of five. When I was in elementary school, I participated in an early-achievers program focused upon establishing a love, interest, and talent for writing at an early age. In middle school, I participated off and on with the school news paper. In both middle and high school, I took English Honors, and participated in on and off campus writing programs. For the past two years, I have been working online doing some basic freelance article writing for companies such as Content Galore, via Mturk. I also used to run an online book business with my mother, via Half.com, Amazon.com, and Abebooks.com. I did all of the article and advertisement writing for her site, which generated an average of five to ten sales a day. In addition, I also wrote her product descriptions. I have self-published two books also.
I was interested in photography at an early age. Mostly, I prefer to photograph Nature or People, versus buildings or cities or any of the like. I took all of the photgraphs for my mother's online business as well, and took the photographs (as well as edited them) for my books. I also won a few contests on weatherchannel.com, for my pictures depicting the weather. I also photograph the majority of family events.
