Nicole Fishkind I currently endeavor to become a journalist and screenwriter. However, as my family lovingly calls me "the grammar police", I believe I may prove to also be a sufficient editor. In lieu of that, I would like to put forth my experience in this industry to those looking to hire someone who is both hard-working and a considerable perfectionist. I first began writing when I was in the second grade, mostly with poetry. I have, of course, branched out from that now with published articles in the Sturgian (an I.B. High School newspaper), and was chosen out of all the students in my district to visit the poet laureate of 2006, Ted Kooser. In my previous college I studied dramatic writing under a very tough professor, yet still managed to secure a B in the class for both content and effort. In my new college (Salem State University) I am a part of the newspaper as both a writer and photographer, as well as securing A’s in all of my English courses. I am an honors student and capable of tackling difficult tasks. I have also edited several papers before they are published, double-checking grammar and punctuation as well as spelling. I have worked in several customer-related fields as well, learning how to multitask and please the client in the following fields: bookkeeping food-related industries childcare photo shoots/portfolio creation and slide-show creation for clientele and editing. I have credits in film, writing, speech and communications, and feel I could be a significant asset to any company. Thank you for reading my resume. Educational Background: Sturgis Public Charter School (I.B. Diploma) Savannah College of Art and Design Salem State University Please contact me with any questions or for further background information.

I attended a 3 year graphic art course at Harare Polytechnic in 1989. All the work we did was done the old traditional way, by hand with any lettering being done on a lightbox. Our course covered logo design, still life, figure drawing, packaging, advertising, various printing techniques, illustration and painting. I was employed by Reprograph, where I prepared art ready for print before travelling over to the UK in 1993. I have designed pub chalk boards, painted ostrich eggs, completed a Highway for Information IT course which included desktop publishing and I completed a Web Design and Flash Animation Course. I have my own cartoon character who is well known amongst the people I know as I make my own cards. He is now 26 years old! I always carry my camera with me and although I have not done a course in photography I get great compliments on my photographs.
