I am a man of many tallents, I take a different look on things in the world. Writing has been a passion for me since I was a child, and continues to grow into new ideas every day. My attention to the inconspicuous leads my readers into a whole different understanding of the content. I also enjoy sketching out my ideas and seeing them for real. Because I practice the forementioned skills, advertizing and design come somewhat naturally. I also like to note that I am a decendent of Samual L. Clemens, not because I feel his craftsmanship was handed down to me, but because it empowered me to know that it could be in me.

Hello, My name is Paul. I have over 12 years of experience editing photographs and images and making them print ready for professional photographers and graphic designers. I have recently closed down my canvas printing business to take on full-time freelancing. Over the last 12 years, I have developed several unique techniques to get the most vibrant colors and sharpest images possible. I have also mastered image enlargement. I can make images very large without losing quality, I believe that there very few other people that truly understand the file to print process as I do. I am also very good at photo restoration, I have restored at least 500 old torn, scratched and faded photographs over the years. My interests are music and art. I am very passionate about music and music production, I have over 20 years of music experience and have become quite proficient in the field of audio production, I specialize in removing noise and mixing down tracks. Creativity is the key to my success?.

Hello, my name is Christopher Huffman. I am an 18 year old high school graduate out of Long Beach Polytechnic class of 2012. During high school I took advantage of to showcase the music I make at any opportunity given. (Basketball games, benefit concerts, rally stage, etc.) Growing up I was considered a high achiever when displaying my talents. I do carry professional experience, because of my abilities, but because of my age I am motivated to work harder and progress to make it in the business world. I am very ambitious and excel when it comes to writing/recording music, also illustration and logo design. The most ideal job I see myself holding would be along the lines of music production. I have a very keen ear for music and I am a great lyricist. In the past I've worked with a number of great producers in the studio who took me under their wing to teach me the skills of producing. I now produce my own music and continue to seek exposure as I learn more within my craft.
