As someone always compelled to correct spelling and grammar in all forms, and who instantly catches any errors are found in print, I've decided I should put my obsession and innate skills to use in the freelance world as a proofreader. Please feel free to send me a short paragraph for a free example. As an added bonus I can offer some graphic design. I have designed event posters, flyers, newsletters, newspaper ads, t-shirts, CD/album covers and jackets, and band and business logos. An eye for layout, color and contrast is my best attribute for this endeavor. I have also provided voice over work for radio commercials. I sound professional, enunciate well, and produce a finished product in few takes. As an added bonus, I have access to a professional recording studio and producer; my husband runs his own studio.
