Don't let the lack of information fool you, I have a BA in Project management with a minor in visual communications. I am looking to take my career in a more creative direction. Writing and advertising are my two main focuses. Ask for samples to see what I can do, but hurry because once I build up a clientele base, my services will no longer be available at such a steal.
