About Me

There is no reason to pretend I hired someone to write a bio, so here is what I am willing to write about myself (with some afterthoughts peppered in).

You could say I’m a Creative Professional (sounds vague, but hang in there) with expertise in Graphic Design Production (Print/Digital), Brand Management, Social Media Management, Event Photography, Electronic Prepress, and Audio and Video Editing. (A mixed bag, but I’ve had to learn these various disciplines in many circumstances just to keep going… There is no glamourous lifestyle with these attributes unless you are “connected”).

From what I am told, I produce engaging content (I really loathe the term “content” when describing what I have done, I’d normally just refer to it as “work”) that exceeds expectations by delivering innovative and visually stunning results.

I’ve always thought outside the box (in every way conceivable, not just in my career), and I always seem to be constantly expanding my skills and knowledge (whether I want to or not) to stay ahead of the curve (basically, because if I don’t, then how am I supposed to feed myself?)

I’ve done other things requiring a mixture of my skills, but I haven’t defined them, as they tend to focus on personal interests more than career expansion (but some have been lucrative if the timing was right). Those additional outlets would be Fine Arts, Pop Culture Writing/Reporting (my news section covers that), and Podcasting
