I have over ten years experience of using Microsoft Word, and have many years experience of typing and word processing. My typing skills are very good and I am fairly quick. I have recently finished a Psychology degree. This involved writing a large number of essays and reports which took a lot of research to complete. As a result I have a lot of research skills and typing skills. As part of my degree I also had to transcribe three 30 minute interviews so I have some experience of transcribing. I managed to do this in a reasonably short space of time although I can't remember exactly how long! I also have spent the last year as an audio typist. This involved receiving audio files on a dictaphone and typing them up into a ready-made template in MS Word. The files were property related, and were inventories of the contents and conditions of houses prior to them being let out to tenants. So I have experience in this field too. I have a lot of experience of data entry into excel. I completed a job years ago for a friend which involved copy and pasting 2000 records into excel. I have recently completed a job on here which involved copy and pasting over 9000 fields from websites into excel. I can copy and paste an average of 630 fields an hour.

I started drawing my own comic books when I was 7 years old. These were the first comic books I had ever seen--even before buying professional comics. When I began buying comics in my pre-teens, I upgraded my art from stick figure-like books to whatever I could trace from the professional comics. I would place a shadeless lamp under a small glass table to light the picture visible under my notebook paper and trace. A few years later, I had gotten to the point of copying instead of tracing. In my early to mid-twenties, I became able to draw from memory or to make things up that I desired to draw. I am a self-taught artist. Currently, anything seen in my gallery is either drawn from nothing or copy drawn from some magazine. I don't have much, but I'm building a portfolio slowly; some things I don't want people to see, so I didn't upload those drawings. I might pull out old pictures and replace them with new ones. I have a free membership, so I think you can only see two skills, but I'm capable of more. Yes, I'm a little broke, but that's why I'm here. I'll purchase a better membership later. My other visible skill is writing. I can create stories for my drawings. I want to create super hero stories, but for now, I'm gonna start with a realistic story to test the waters. The skills this page might not let you see are other different types of drawings. The types range from fantasy, horror, cartoons, and so on. Hopefully, I can find where I fit in on this site and be chosen for jobs as well. If anyone takes interest in my ability and would like for me to draw for them, leave a number or e-mail me. I'll do all that my pencil and ink allows. Thanks for reading :)
