With an abundance of experience in the practice of writing, both concise and reliable non-fiction, in addition to creative and imaginative fiction, the quality of all my work is always exceptional. I have worked for a considerable amount of time as a freelance writer for websites and professional publication. In that time, I have developed an unique approach and style of writing, as well as a strong passion that inspires and motivates me for each piece of writing, be it an academic report or a creative piece of non-fiction. In 1994, I successfully completed an honours degree at RMIT Melbourne in combined modern and contemporary history with creative writing, which I followed with extensive work in the industry, primarily as a freelancer, as mentioned above, but also for feature articles and my own novels I have been working vigilantly on. I place a very high level of importance on ensuring all of my work is completed to the very highest standard possible, and my determination and perserverance consistently helps me to achieve this each and every time. Please note that while it is true that my 'kudos' is low, it is only due to the fact that I have joined this website very recently - this is not a true indication of the quality of the work I can provide, so please don't rely on that, at this point in time, for consideration in jobs.

For 12 years I worked with the mentally disabled. I worked in many areas in the agency and very much enjoyed it. During my time there we held an annual golf tournament, I was able to get many people to attend and donate for the cause. I would go to numerous places and was very successful. I was also able to have a large area that was covered in rocks, cemented. It was done by donation because I wrote a letter and brought it to the company. I was able to also get hundreds of cans of paint donated by Home Depot. I then started working for a board certified Psychiatrist whom helped people with mental help issues along with substance abuse. His practice was not doing well, so I suggested marketing. I went above and beyond, community newspapers, bringing business cards to every and every place I could. I was able to bring his monthly earnings up 75% due to my out going personality and my ambition to see a business grow. I also have great internet skills, and my fiance is also a website developer that assists in helping with cards, letter head paper etc. I am extremely motivated with an excellent ability to getting a new, slow, or want for growth business or company where it needs to be.

TECHNICAL SKILLS - Adobe Illustrator CS4 - Adobe InDesign CS4 - Photoshop CS4 - QuarkXpress 7 - Freehand MX - PageMaker 7 - CorelDraw 11 - Alan Graphics RIP (700 MHz) EDUCATION - BA Graphic Design, Chester College of New England (2003-2006) RELEVANT EXPERIENCE Graphic Specialist/Lead Artist - Label Art, Inc., Wilton, NH 2000 to 2008 Freelance Designer - Dark Oz Publications, Salisbury, South Australia 2012 - Present - Amaru Studios, Hinsdale, NH 2011 - Present - Federated Media Publishing, San Francisco, CA 2011 - 2012 - SmartBear Software (softwarequalityconnection.com/cartoon-archive/) - O’Reilly Media, Inc., Sebastopol, CA 2007 to 2011 (wateringholecomic.com) - Middle School at Parkside, Manchester, NH 2007-2008 SELECTED PROFESSIONAL ACHIEVEMENTS - Artist for online comic strip “The Watering Hole” for O’Reilly Media since the strip’s inception using traditional and digital methods. I assumed responsibility of the conceptualization and continuation of the look and format of the strip and its characters as well as maintaining the weekly deadline. The editors are very pleased with my ability to bring the script to life and emphasize the humor and spirit of the strip. - At Label Art I contributed to the prepress preparation of customer-provided art specs for long and short run labels. I was also in charge of converting files from IBM to Mac formats and preparing files transmitted via e-mail for prepress use, trouble-shooting digital files prior to outputting to the RIP, training new artists, and resolving all prepress issues that arise. Most importantly I was counted on as the second shift “go-to guy” to fix the more complicated 4C files so that they could be sent to the offset presses on schedule and so we avoided costly delays and interruption of the first shift’s schedule. This was a great help for Label Art as prior to me they had to wait for first shift artists to fix the problem that resulted in costly delays and backlogs. - Comic Book Art instructor for the 21st Century Community Learning Center’s After School Program for Middle School at Parkside. Here is where my ability to share my knowledge and skills really came in handy as I taught the children the methods and techniques necessary to build on as they created their own mini comics. SUMMARY I am an enthusiastic and professional Designer with over 10 years of experience who enjoys being part of a successful and productive team. I am quick to grasp new ideas and concepts, and to develop innovative and creative solutions to problems. I am able to work well on my own initiative and can demonstrate the high levels of motivation required to meet the tightest of deadlines. Even under significant pressure I possess a strong ability to perform effectively.
