    Vector Artist

    Canada - Last active: 03/19/2014 - Tests: 7

    Hello, world! My name is Michelle, a recently graduated Engineer who wants to follow her love of creating art. In university, I used Solid Edge/Works extensively to create accurate models out of technical drawings, and am confident that I can create 3D representations of what you desire. As well, I have previous years of experience with Photoshop, and am currently teaching myself how to use Illustrator (which I think I really love using even more). Right now, I am designing posters for the Footbag Eurotour sponsored by Sport/Life, and am eager to get more experience with projects like this. Besides that, in my spare time as a hobby, I like to trace and Vectorise the appearance of churches of varying complexity. I also (strangely) enjoy formatting and reviewing Word documents and have years of experience doing this for university. If you have a document that you need to look polished and/or edited, have time to review it yourself, I am sure that I can quickly provide this service for you. As well, I have experience with accurate interview transcription, and can quickly write and format a transcription to be easily readable for you. Please feel free to contact me about a project or design you need doing, and I will be sure to do my best for you! Thanks for stopping by, checking me out, and helping me learn. -Michelle

    Native English Translator with High Japanese and Chinese Proficiency

    Canada - Last active: 09/10/2014 - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 4

    I am a self-motivated lover of languages. I graduated from the University of British Columbia, a top Canadian university, in May of 2013 where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Asian Language and Culture. My drive to understand the rich linguistic tapestries of the world has so far taken me to Tokyo for a year on exchange where I studied Japanese intensively at the prestigious Waseda University, and currently to Taipei where I am finishing a year of intensive Chinese studies. Both my Japanese and Chinese are proficient across a wide range of topics. My current experience is limited to local interpretation for tourists visiting Tokyo and Taipei, but I have also translated a blog from Chinese to English.
