I have been doing photo editing for six years working for a professional photographer in Michigan. My service is retouching/enhancing your everyday photographs at an affordable price. For example, removing acne from an otherwise great picture, enhancing the lighting (which makes a huge difference in most pictures), and just making an ordinary picture more stylish in general. I charge on a per picture basis; $3-$5 per photograph, which is a small price to pay for an awesome Facebook profile picture or "wall worthy" family photograph. Check out some before and afters of what I can do and contact me before you print or post your next unretouched photograph!

I am a writer full time but I can do voice acting as well. I don't really like getting up in front of people but don't mind sending sound clips or whatever. I have a voice that can bend and move like a pro. I can imitate hundreds of characters and with time could learn just about any of them. I do a great deep voice like the "cave of wonders" from Aladdin, That is the one that gets me jobs more than any other, people like it because it sounds like the devil. I also do quite a few audio narrations and book readings. I did all of my own cover art for my books, I have written 6 books so far and continue to write at a rate of about 2000 words a day. (about a novel a month if I have nothing else to do.)
