    Inquisitive creativity.

    United States - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 12

    An art major with a deep interest in science and a talent for writing, I work closely with my clients to ensure the work delivered is top quality. I can work in a variety of styles depending on what's needed, and my goal is something original and eye-catching that will stand out from the crowd. Of note is my specialty in all things dinosaurs-- they have been a lifelong passion of mine, and I am current on all related science. But they are hardly all I can do; I love designing unique creatures and characters for the fantasy, horror, and sci-fi genres that don't look like what's been done before. I am always working to expand my portfolio; check back often to see what's new!

    Stephen O.

    Law Enforcement SME-writer

    United States - Portfolio: 20

    Since age 5, Stephen harbored a pre-conceptualized childhood passion to become a police officer. He eventually studied Criminology, English and Writing in the early 1990s. His dream would not come to fruition in the traditional sense; Stephen was hampered by cancer affliction. Many surgeries would be endured before he was deemed physically fit-enough to compete for a badge. After his cancer treatments, healing processes, and rejuvenation periods, Stephen engaged in his childhood dream as a law enforcement officer, sworn-in on 09/11/01. Yes, that particular day! Stephen enjoyed an illustrative police career, garnering "Officer of the Year" in 2006. He applied for advanced police instruction in Field Training new recruits and became a Field Training Officer (FTO) to help shape the face of his department for years to come. Stephen thoroughly loved training the newly-hired cops. His police career was abruptly ceased by cancer recurrence; he launched a writing career in 2012.

    Richard Harris Wright: Writer

    < Rick at the Falkirk Wheel in Scotland

    United States - Portfolio: 12

    I am well read, widely traveled, and well rounded in terms of professional experience and avocations. In addition to an engineering degree, I have done graduate work in philosophy. You should be able to expect competence in research and use of the English language from any applicant, but probably not the depth of life experience that I can bring to your projects. My published works include an ebook entitled "Walden Too: Building and Living in Your Little House in the Woods" and a continuing education unit on professional engineering ethics. I am a retired consulting engineer, having done business for many years as Val/Tec Enterprises. I designed mechanical systems (including solar) for buildings, and performed preacquisition property surveys, green building design and alternative energy technology applications. I have served as facilities engineer for the State of Georgia and director-engineering for Equitable Real Estate.

    United States

    I graduated on May 4th, 2013 from Jacksonville University with a degree in Computer Animation. During my time there, I also took courses in digital art, traditional drawing and painting, and illustration. I have always loved to draw, and until a few years ago, I never imagined I¿d have an opportunity to learn computer animation. The hours I spent working on assignments for my classes as well as for my own growth has confirmed that I truly love that art form, and I am excited about the numerous ways it can be used.My desire is to find a job doing work that I love in a creative environment, with other people who love what they are doing as well. As Colossians 3:23 says, ¿Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men.¿
