Currently serving Active Duty US Navy. I am a mechanical engineer (Gas Turbine Systems Technician - Mechanical [GSM]), working with various equipment, but a system specialist in the repair and maintenance of the marine propulsion gas turbine engines and Rolls Royce generators. I am a man thriving on ambition and adventure. Creativity spawns ingenuity. An individual thinking outside the box is how we have come to fly. I am that type of person. I like to experiment in different fields of work while there is downtime with my current obligations. When I try something, I will not quit until I get it right. Then once it's right, I will perfect it. I will never call myself an expert in any field of work or occupation. There is always a new way to do something, build something, do it better, see it better. My proficiency in writing, reading, proof-reading, and grammar is excellent. In my current line of work, I am trained to notice mistakes, errors, or mishaps. To leave one go unnoticed would be a sign that I'm not doing my job. And to me, that is unacceptable. To add to writing, I can be very creative, and write in many different styles. Photography has been one of the things that I have had an upper-hand in. With my photos, I like to be creative, capture the moment, and emphasize exactly what it is being captured. My photography classes have always been in high marks, and event photo's always savoring the moment. My old history teacher once told me, "Knowledge is key for this day in age," and "If you can attach an emotion to something, you will always remember that particular piece of information, because you can associate to that". What that meant to me, was I needed to know everything around me. Of course, I don't know everything, but I learned different subjects and was able to retain the information I learned because I was able to associate it to something that would either "click" with that particular piece of information, or have an emotion towards that subject. I hate computers. But because I have this passion towards computers, I was able to learn how they work and how to fix them, effectively and efficiently. Hating computers, however, does not make me any less reliant as the next guy. Knowing the "ins" and "outs" of our advancing technology, computers and mobile technology alike, makes me more aware and more marketable. If you would like to know more, please feel free to contact me. I really do hope to hear from you soon. -Mike

More often than not, it's a walk through the woods that sparks the moment of inspiration for Cassie Shawver's personal work. She harbors a deep appreciation of nature in all its forms, and as an artist she tries to share that sense of wonder with the viewer. She enjoys pulling stories out of her surroundings--finding parallels of the human condition through personification of natural forces, with the connection between the two often spiritual. Her work is heavily influenced by folk lore from many cultures around the world and how they view their environment. In her more recent work, she also draws from a love of antique field guides, presenting information on both the scientific and spiritual aspects of her subject through hand-drawn type. Cassie's favorite medium, by far, is watercolor with pen and ink, but thanks to an education from the Columus College of Art and Design, she is capable and confident working in nearly all media. She currently enjoys working as a freelance illustrator, graphic designer and fine artist, but she longs to one day be to be a full-time children's illustrator who also happens to run a farm on the side.
