I am 25 years old and living in New Hampshire. My primary skills are in English, writing, and literary arts, although I've recently been dabbling in photography with a growing interest. I can also pick up other skills rather quickly to complete a job. I've been writing for over 10 years. I've done nonfiction articles, essays, and papers; blogs; correspondence; and fiction pieces (i.e. poetry, narratives, short stories, etc). I can produce samples of my work upon request. Personally, I'm a quirky and creative person with a wide and varied range of interests. I love learning new things (I'm a continuous student to prove it!) so even if the topic isn't something I'm familiar with, I'll dive into with the same level of passion and probably bring a new perspective to the writing. As for photography, I usually do more artistic, personal stuff, but I can try my hand at other types as well. I promise that if chosen for a job, I will get it done to the best of my abilityand as quickly as the project will permit - meaning while I won't take my time, I'll take the time needed to do the best job possible for you. This is more of a way to build my portfolio than earn extra money, so I'm eager to look over any job offer! Thanks for reading.
