    United States - Last active: 26 days ago - Tests: 11

    Delightful copy is quite compelling when paired with fascinating and scintillating verbiage of prodigious proportions. With an expertise in the music of words, clear and concise communication of your ideas can make the difference between chasing customers away or engaging them. I have extensive experience in audio production, recording, composing and editing. In addition to recording and performing with the jazz fusion group Faint Image, laying down ambling folk-pop with Balance Problems, contemplating life through a vortex of slam poetry, rock and ambient textures with Garret Potter and searching for a person sound, style and voice with Samuel John, I wrote and recorded the soundtrack to Andrew Madueke's Night to Fly - about the death of a Nigerian man and the need for revenge. Check out www.samueljohn.us for examples of my writing, recording and composing.
