Communication can be hard, even for those who feel they excel at the matter. Beyond the words, we often forget that we need to convey a message. Whether it's a fictional narrative or a press release, knowing what and how to communicate an idea effectively determines the degree to which your audience will engage with your message. In developing my skills as a writer, I have conceptualized a variety of methods by which to engage specific audiences. As writing for oneself means considering only your own likes and dislikes, writing for others, or for that matter writing with a purpose requires a rhetoric all its own.

Born in Northridge, California in 1983. I've always had a fascination with illustration and design. Even at the young age of three I experimented with drawing things like the fictional starship Enterprise from 'Star Trek'. Those drawings may have been primitive, but my interest in the subject of illustration persisted. While my life has pursued practical means, I have kept my skills as an illustrator. Even through my enlistment in the United States Army as a medic, I found myself regularly participating in logo and emblem design. I remember one of my NCOs asking, "Why the hell are you in the Army when you can draw!?" So now I'd like to have a go and freelancing. I hope the best!
