I have been writing for about nine years and am extremely passionate about continuing to do so. I do both creative and formal writing, depending on the circumstance, of course and am hoping to use this opportunity to expand on the different options in various jobs. If you wish to see some of my freeform poetry writing, see http://www.writerscafe.org/spruce.stream for reference. Though I do not have much concrete experience in other types of writing, I take pride in my poetry. There are many levels to my poetry and it is a great passion of mine. I also have recently signed a two-year contract with a publishing company that has agreed to use my poetry in a book. I would love the chance to help you with this job.

Ever since I can remember I have been inventing worlds or characters, and using my imagery skills to bring them to life. I am passionate about creating new designs and breaking out of the proverbial box. I use anything from designing a comic to a full illustration to get my ideas down on paper. I am hard-working, enthusiastic and I put my best effort into everything I attempt.
