I am a 28-year-old father of four (ages 0-6), with a bachelors in fine arts from Columbus College of Art and Design. I began sketching in high school, and pursued an education in primarily painting (oil, watercolor, acrylic, mixed media) and also drawing and illustration throughout college. My primary focus through my first year of college was on illustration. I have been a part of six group art shows in the past six years, and am currently planning for a solo exhibition in the near future. Since I became a father, I have developed a special interest in illustrating children's books and have a thorough understanding of the kinds of art children are interested in.

If YOU have a creative mind, I want to work with you! I know that you have been overwhelmed by applicants. This always happens. I'd love for you to please take a peek at my portfolio and then ask me to provide a drawing/writing sample specific to your needs. This is how we will know if we are a match for each other. I promise to be quick on my feet and respectful of the process if you will join me. I am always appreciative of people who send me a quick note to let me know where I stand, because then I know how to proceed. My chief profession is as a landscape architect, but I write and illustrate on a part time basis and am always looking for engaging freelance work. I have published articles in Horticulture, Vermont, Southern Vermont Arts and Living, and Stratton magazines. Here are a couple of non-fiction samples, one about downy mildew (http://www.jmmds.com/2011/09/reviving-rudbeckia-a-case-study-of-downy-mildew/) and another about heirloom chickens (http://vermontartsliving.com/?p=1291). Please ask for additional writing samples. I write in a range of styles and voices. I am well versed in illustration and graphic design and seek out projects with other creative individuals. I do realistic renderings and technical drawings on a day-to-day basis for my regular work, but love to delve into the whimsical world of free-form design where anything is possible! Please check out my website of images at http://andromedadesigns.com/art-and-illustration.html. I can draw whatever you want. I have removed the post for my normal hourly rate. I think that it would serve us better to find out your intended range and then create a proposal based on your needs. Most of the time freelance writing will be billed per word and art on a per project basis. Illustration is billed by the drawing. Other work may be billed by the hour and a mutually agreed price.

I have spent the last ten years perfecting the art of online marketing. I have spent countless hours teaching business owners and large corporations how to use online marketing effectively. I understand that no two businesses are alike, even within the same vertical. More importantly, I’m not afraid to roll up my sleeves and get my hands dirty. I’m the former owner of one of New York’s most prolific SEO firm and I will use my years of experience to get your business where it needs to be. I have had articles published online, in trade publications, participated in tele-seminars and even had a successful podcast on itunes (Over 10,000 Downloads per month). These tools I created were for anyone wanting to learn about online marketing. I have worked closely with other leading online marketers and enjoy sharing ideas and knowledge. The online space is always changing and being on top of trends and methods is what I do best.
