Graphic Designer & Genealogist with research and marketing experience
Last active: 04/02/2014
I have ten-plus years of experience in graphic design and multimedia. My particular strengths include the creation of logos or images for promotional or advertising purposes; image restoration, retouching, and recoloring, particularly old or damaged photographs; creating digital and print collages as keepsakes and gifts; and creating digital or print materials such as business cards, brochures, flyers, and fundraising packs. I am also skilled at preparing presentations, particularly in PowerPoint.
In addition to my artistic skills, I am an experienced genealogist and researcher, having performed family history research for nearly twenty years. I am adept at utilizing databases, libraries, and the Internet to trace family genealogies, as well as to track down missing friends, relatives, or next-of-kin. And if you are looking for information on a specific topic, I can quickly and efficiently compile a thorough report, distilling all information in a comprehensive but easy-to-understand manner.
I also enjoy proofreading, copy-editing and writing, and have strong English language and grammar skills. I have a keen eye for detail, and will ensure that your e-mails, reports, presentations, copy, and publications are professional and error-free.
Finally, I have recently begun work as a voice-over artist, with particular interest in recording audio books and training voice-overs.
If I can be of assistance to you in any of these areas, or if you have a project that you'd like to run past me, I welcome any new opportunities and challenges. I look forward to hearing from you!
