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).

I guess I would say that I am a Creative Professional with a broad range of skills. I specialize in graphic design production for print and digital media, brand management, social media management, event photography, electronic prepress, and audio and video editing. Although it may seem like a mixed bag of skills, I have learned to master these various disciplines to keep myself going. It’s not always a glamorous lifestyle, especially if you don’t have connections in the industry.

From what I am told, I produce engaging content (I loathe the term “content” when describing what I have done; I’d typically refer to it as “work”) that exceeds expectations.

I have always thought outside the box, not just in my career but every aspect of my life. I consistently strive to expand my skills and knowledge to stay ahead of the curve, whether I desire to or not. I do this because if I don’t, I won’t be able to sustain myself.

I have engaged in various activities that require a blend of my skills. However, I still need to identify them as they usually revolve around my personal interests rather than professional growth. However, some of them have been profitable if the timing was favorable. These additional pursuits include Fine Arts, Pop Culture Writing/Reporting (my news section covers), Narration, and Podcasting.
