Self-Taught Artist that has a hand in all the art-forms -Painting -Drawing -Sculpture -Ceramics -Design (Murals,Portraits,Landscapes,Abstract,Experimental,Line-work,Anatomical Figures,Conceptual,Design,Maquettes,Sculpture molds, Adobe Photoshop,Illustrator, Paint SAI,Miniature Model Customization) - As an artist, I feel that boundaries must be broken and reinvented. In art, originality is the key. I live and create my work on these principles. I'm always compelled to cut my own path in a sea of giants and surface with a vision of my own. My imagination and emotions have always been the driving force in everything I do. I have an imagination that is a never ending stream of ideas. Some of my concepts are so far-fetched only through my art I’m able to create them. I tend to bind all these theories and designs with great passion for art. I put much thought into what I create before it drips of the brush or runs of the pen. I maintain a well balance of imaginative juices and expressive forms to create the foundation of my artistic ways. For the most part really, I mix the world of reality against the world in which my imagination is liberated to run rampant. I take the laws of physics and the usual norms and press them against their breaking points. The reality vs. unreal is seen throughout my creature concepts and lavish landscapes. I also reside in the real aspect of life but usually the outer limits are where I feel more comfortable with my art. The occult, monsters, creatures, imaginary landscapes, basically all unreal but very imaginative enriched conceptual art is my playing field. While I rather spend time creating conceptual art all art is welcome on my pen, pencil, brush, wacom tablet, aerosol can of paint, and sculpting tools. Jorge S.

An advanced photographer with many texture, filter and design skills. I create every album from each client. I believe that these memories are the most significant purchase that the client can take with them. Reliving their precious moments are significant. I also design logos and magazine layouts which have been featured in The Knot magazine. I am extremely creative and go beyond the lens and software to capture the soul of the moment. I have been in the business for over 7 years. There is nothing that I can't achieve. There is no design to difficult for me to master. I work with my clients to in a collabrative relationship so that there is nothing they feel denied of. I have created many albums and each spread is created to stand alone as a gallery art spread. My clients have a name and they are important to me.

With 12 years experience, Speak And Be Heard's Chief Communications Officer has degrees in International relations, Communications and technology transfer. She has worked extensively in government, business and human services and enjoys multi-media communication across the Internet. She is a high energy, gregarious and personable individual with psychological interviewing, political, international relations, PR and marketing, communications and creative writing skills. She has a wide personal and professional network and has been hired as a speech writer, public speaker, blogger, business, science and comedy fiction writer. She works easily with high level leaders in science, technology, business and government. She has has built a broad global vision and a strong personal network. She understands complex relationships and multi-faceted needs of industry and government and technology markets including bioscience, healthcare, aerospace, IT and green technologies. She can attract, assist, promote and persuade people, programs, companies and initiatives directly or indirectly by managing teams of technical and creatively skilled professionals. How Our Chief Communications Officer Describes Herself: I enjoy stories- personal, professional and technical. Often- the people with the most to say are quite introverted. I facilitate better communication and cross-cultural understanding between academics, inventors, entrepreneurs, CEOs, scientists, businesspeople and the general public. I conduct qualitative research, distill complex ideas and produce accessible speeches, reports and creative fiction that persuade and make you think. I've written and delivered humorous speeches an stories and incorporated technical research so that it's widely accessible for the general public. Sometimes I narrate and deliver speeches because I am a trained speaker but I also coach introverted and non-native speakers who need to present what they know in an effective, accessible and persuasive way. I've written promotional articles and blogs and articles based on interviews, original qualitative research and published research reports and data. What can I do for you? From a PR perspective, I am strategically focussed and I attribute my success to my personal traits : 1) I am curious and comfortable learning a wide range of subjects quickly, listening to what interests people and finding new ways to attract small and large distinguished groups around common themes. People tend to trust and open up to me professionally which is very helpful given that I am also goal-driven and think strategically. 2) I am a loyal, discreet and extroverted. I support leadership in a thoughtfully engaged manager. I enjoy designing strategies based on an understanding of client needs. 3) I form teams and guide them to find new ways to reach explicit and implicit goals in a short period of time. I like having tangible and verifiable results to show. 4) I naturally pull disparate concepts together to find common linkages between people, places and things. I understand and dissect academic and scientific research-rich content as well as current policy discussions and popular culture/media. 5) I draw my confidence from a range of creative sales, outreach and non-traditional marketing skills based on my training in social research methodology and having grown up in a largely successful entrepreneurial family. My hands-on, traditional PR skills are extensive and I make use of them whenever I can. They include events management; creating and using extensive contact lists, writing opinion pieces, managing focus groups, public speaking in front of large and small audiences, speech and press release writing and pitching stories to the media. 6) As an early adopter of new technologies I also have a penchant for cutting-edge technology and human research methods, communications devices, graphics and telecommunications-rich programs and the newest online networking resources. I enjoy the creative aspects of my work and delight in learning effective ways to bring it all together. Would my skills be useful to your firm? I am entrepreneurial by nature and have worked in government, private industry, started my own consulting practice and helped government to engage bi-partisan and time-pressed, C-level industry strategy groups in aerospace, biotechnology, IT and Health Care. I am fearless, good-natured, ethical and hard working. When can we meet? Thank you so much for your consideration.
